Post Holiday Clothing Swap: Start the year off on a fashionable foot! January 15th.

The holiday gift giving madness is behind you, which is the perfect time to figure out what to do with the clothing gifts received which you knew was destined to collect dust in your closet.
Well we have a happy answer to that! Your “trash” becomes someone else’s treasure or you can Upcycle. Whether you have purged your closets for the New Year or it is an unwanted present, bring it!
What sets the Style with Glee swaps apart from others is that you get Stylist Gabriela Lee’s expert opinion on what items others have bought that should go home with you. She reviews each garment and will style you on the spot. (

Catherine Charlot, owner of HIMANE who tell you how you can UPCYCLE items by creating a BRAND new accessory or garment. Transform items that you just can’t part with into a piece you would enjoy wearing, like a leather jacket into a bag, a shirt into a dress or dress into another dress!
