My Outfit Monday: This outfit cost zero dollars



Oh, sweet clothing swap lifestyle. It takes a while to cultivate, but if you get in the habit of trading clothes with friends, eventually, most of your wardrobe will be $Free.99.

Here's how my outfit breaks down today.

Blouse: $0.00, acquired at a clothing swap at a synagogue luncheon at which the Deal Divas were guest speakers several years ago. We all brought items to swap with the ladies. I think the bow detail on the back is sweet.

Skirt: $0.00, acquired at the latest Times clothing swap. I call this my Meryl Streep skirt, because it reminds me of something she might wear to an awards show with a white collared shirt.

Shoes: $0.00. The famous Manolos gifted to me by a mysterious benefactor.

Earrings: $0.00, acquired by my mother at some kind of work event and passed on to me.

Bracelets: Maybe I paid for these? I think they're from Kohl's. Who can possibly remember when overwhelmed by such cost savings?

Want to host a clothing swap of your own? Here is our time-tested advice. May you never have to pay for anything, ever again.
