The art of clothes swapping

Just a short and sweet post where I want to express that second hand clothing is OK!
You don’t have to fork out on every piece of clothing you add to your wardrobe, but sometimes you can get things for free (and I’m NOT talking about shoplifting!)
If you live in Leeds or the surrounding areas you might have heard of Remade in Leeds. It’s a small shop in Hyde Park where they arrange a monthly clothes exchange event. You simply bring your unwanted garments, and you get to swap them for the same amount of “new” clothes. New in this sentence meaning someone else’s old clothes – but still new to you!
I think it’s a brilliant idea, and it reduces clothing waste at the same time as it’s a creative way of experimenting with your individual style
Last time I went I found this black halterneck dress with smocking around the middle and braided details around the décolletage. Not too bad, is it? It’s actually quite versatile.
 Next clothes exchange event is on Saturday 21st of July (between 12.00-16.00).


  1. It is a great idea! And nice to see that it is possible to find some really nice pieces there :) xx

  2. For someone who lived in Hyde Park up until a month ago, how did I not know about this?!

    1. Hi Lea. You should definitely check it out when you're in Hyde Park next :) They always have their little shop open, but the clothes exchange event is only once a month. Well worth going to! xx
