Green the Red Carpet Sip & Swap

Amy of Punkystyle was kind enough to alert me to this fun clothing swap that will be taking place in L.A. on Saturday February 26, so mark your calendars and save the date. Flaunt your eco-chic side by swapping out all those NWT, like-new and gently worn dresses, separates, denim, handbags, shoes & jewelry at a fun night of retail therapy meets recycling with America's favorite clothing swap hostesses, The Swapaholics.

Amy Chase & Melissa Massello, who together are known as “The Swapaholics,” are heading to L.A. to host a “Green the Red Carpet” clothing and accessories swap at Catchlight Studios in West Hollywood, sponsored by Freixenet.

Here's how it works: Admission is $20 and participants are asked to bring a bag of gently loved clothing, accessories, shoes and evening wear (it’s Oscar time, after all) to drop off by 7:30pm. Amy, Melissa, & their team will then curate a “swap boutique” and at 8pm sharp, the doors will open for women to swap ‘til they drop and scour the racks for new finds. Bring a bag full of all those like-new and gently worn clothes, shoes, accessories, handbags & jewelry just taking up space in your closet and trade them in for a new bag full of fashionable finds from your fellow stylish Angelenos.

Here is a summary of the event details:

Where: Catchlight Studios 633 N. La Brea Ave (at Melrose), West Hollywood, CA 90036
When: Saturday Feb. 26, 2011. Press & Blogger Preview: 6 p.m.
Clothing Drop-Off: 6 to 7:30 p.m. Swap: 8 p.m.
