Inside the MG & Moms LA Swap Party

girl holds shoes and white shirt with big smileThanks so much to MomsLA for co-hosting an amazing Swap Your Style Party to celebrate the culmination of January’s Shop Drop Challenge, in which 500 women saved more than $30,000 and 3,000 pounds of landfill waste, just by taking a 30-day retail shopping pause—and thrifting and swapping instead.

We were joined by celebrity guests Christiane Siedel of “Boardwalk Empire,” stylist Allison Deyette—she scored Manolos! Plus, Alysia Reiner of “Orange is the New Black” and her husband, David Alan Basche of “The Exes”—our token male of the day—who promised that nothing any of us tried on “ever makes you look fat.” It’s true—check out the video.

Thanks to our sponsors Swapdom, OM Organic Mixology, Whole Foods Market West LA, Nothing Bundt Cake, Gurus Natural Rubber Sandals, Josie Maran Cosmetics, The Wonder Seed, Kuyam and Marquis Energy Drinks for making it all possible, and for Give Plus Take in Santa Monica, CA for letting us take over your amazing swap shop for the day. I hope our party inspires you to host a swap of your own!



  1. SO happy my black Manolo Blahnik’s and Theory shirt have a new home! Got more goodies saved up for the NEXT swap!!!! xo

  2. Such a fun event! I’ve already worn most of what I swapped – and every time someone compliments me on one of the pieces… I’m sharing how they came into my wardrobe!
    Now… we just need a store in the Valley!

  3. So bummed I missed it – sick kid and launching my new site overwhelm – looks like a fun time!
