Last Saturday, I had the pleasure to attend the newest shopping and fund raising phenomenon, Haute Swapping for a cause. This years Haute Swapping event was held at the beautiful Velocity Condo in the hip and chic Gulch area.
Fab Friend Raynetta Smith (above) and her team put on a fabulous party and event.
HER Nashville and The Downtown Partnership, helped bring patrons together to raise money for The Second Harvest Food Bank.
Guests came together to swap clothes, eat tasty treats (the bite sized cupcakes were DELICIOUS), and socialize. There was a Vitamin Water Zero Lounge that featured Emeri Pink Moscato, desserts by Dolce Desserts, Christie Cookie and food by Personal Chef Jason Williams. Nashville Examiner, The Single Woman, Mandy Hale (@thesinglewoman) was the guest speaker.
The best part about the Haute Swap was the SWAPPING. The way it works is: Ladies bring up to 6 pieces to swap. The clothing is separated while the guests enjoying the silent auction, treats, and the special guest speakers. Later that night the swap starts. The ladies race back to the racks to find fly clothes. For every piece of clothes donated, you can swap out for a new piece donated by another guest. Some guests left with barely worn Louis Vuitton pumps, cute trench coats, and loads of other cute clothes.
Even if you weren’t fast enough to grab a fab find, you could bid on the celeb donated items and apparel.
Jeans from Taylor Swift, signed Titan’s footballs, and an exclusive Coach purse, were all up for bid. You know I tried to get that purse!
This event was so fun! If you didn’t get a chance to come out, you missed a grand event. Make sure to come out next year!
