It is Spring Cleaning time, my little darkling avacados. It is time to venture into the depths of your closets, machete in hand, and cull the dead wood from the tree of fashion. It is time to admit that those pants never actually fit you, a good sale can get out of hand, and if you haven’t found a reason to wear it yet, you won’t.
So, I thought it would be a good time for Haute Macabre to host a clothing swap. Of course, we’re all on different continents, but with just a bit of figuring I think I’ve sorted it out.
Please have a minimum of three items you are willing to part with. I’ll hook everyone up with someone in their own country, so you don’t have to deal with international shipping. Other than that, it will work pretty much like a Secret Santa- I’ll tell you who you are shipping to, but you may not be getting stuff from the same person.
To participate, please email me at “firstname.lastname@example.org”, with CLOTHING SWAP in the subject line. In the body of the email, I’ll need your name, gender, and shipping address (including country), and your sizes (shoes, too). If I get a lot of responses, I’ll send out a questionaire at the end of the week to help me match people better, but this is a good start.If you want more than one buddy, let me know that, too. Just make sure everyone gets at least three things in their package.
The deadline is April 25th to let me know you want to participate, so get to cleaning!
ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS SO FAR:
-If you just gained or lost weight, I’ll need to know both what size you wear now and what you want to give away.
-Deadline to send out clothes will be some time in early May, depending on how fast I can get everyone sorted.
-There is no “must be worth x”. A package contains a minimum of three things, and there is no maximum. Send a carton if you like.
-Three unmatched socks do not count. Clothes should be in wearable condition. They should not smell of cat pee.
Make this fun- I encourage adding notes or cookies, decorating boxes, and generally brightening the day of the person on the other end! Who knows- you may end up with a friend as well as a cute new outfit.
* Haute Macabre is not responsible for flakes, so everyone that agrees to do this- please do, or someone will end up with no presents.
