Ladies in Nashville, if you love to shop but can’t seem to fit the increasing prices into your budget monthly we have a great suggestion that adds a twist to finding new threads. Haute Swapping for a Cause.
Swap Parties are an alternative way for people to “shop.” Lots of women, and sometimes men, get together to swap items from their closet with others. Its more of a thrifting idea, but in a social setting. The night is filled with fashion, fun and in our case philanthropy. Haute Swapping for a Cause was created last year as a way for Haute Candy, Inc., to give back to the community.
As you know, I am one to shop cost consciously and thought that the idea would be a great way to get women together in the community who, like me, love finding fashionable deals. So, last year Haute Swapping for a Cause was held in Hillsboro Village and raised money for the YWCA Weaver Domestic Abuse Center. Local recording artist Casme’ performed, DJ Art provided the music, we had several fashion “booths” setup to give tips on styling, makeup and hair, and the Tennessean came out! We had A LOT of fun while raising money for a great cause.
This year, Haute Swapping for a Cause will be held September 18 at the Velocity in the Gulch. The event will raise money for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. I am excited to say that planning is going extremely well! We have some Haute things happening this year. Our event is being sponsored by Debortoli Wines – Emeri Pink Moscato, Velocity in the Gulch, Smart Water Zero and HER Nashville!
While I won’t divulge ALL the details today, I will tell you that the silent auction is going to be HAUTE. Nicole Kidman has donated an item to our event as well as many others and the “Haute Lounge” is something you don’t want to miss! So, LADIES (sorry fellas) be on the look out for more information. Tickets will go on sale this month and the event is limited to 200 people. The first 50 ladies will receive a Haute Goodie Bag.
