Style Swap is coming, and it needs your most stylish cast-offs

Advance tickets going for just $10

Style Swap returns to Charleston Sept. 10, and we hear tickets are selling fast.

Hosted by Wilmington-based “style girl” Jess James, the event made its local debut back in May at the Music Farm. A small group of ladies walked in with their stylish cast-offs and walked off with something new-to-them.

While the first event was a hit with guests, the upcoming Swap has definitely made some major improvements. It’s going to be held at Eye Level Art’s 103 gallery, with catering from Halls Chophouse, and an after-party at Halls as well. There’s complimentary wine from Social, a Stella Nova beauty station with massages and mini makeovers, and gift bags with goodies from Trish McEvoy, Chanel, and Bobbi Brown. And while the first event only featured a few designers, this Swap boasts a huge list of participating retailers and designers, like II Brunettes, Copper Penny, Biton, Love Me Again, Estella Vitae, and many more.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $20 at the door. You’ll need to bring one gently-worn item on a hanger, and one accessory — and please, don’t bring worn-out crap that no one wants. It’s up to you to keep the selection fresh!

As with the previous event, guests will be able to bid on their favorite items, and they’re sure to walk away with at least one piece they wanted (depending on the popularity of items bid on).

Be smart and order your tickets in advance, which will give you food, wine, and potentially some fab new designer/vintage clothes for $10. You can't beat that.
