We cannot wait to host the 3rd Annual A*cute Clothing Exchange & Trunk Show this Saturday, September 21, 1:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Mad Hatter located in DC’s Dupont Circle at 1319 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Here are some clothing exchange FAQs, so you can know what you’re in for.

What if my clothes/accessories are outdated?

One [wo]man’s trash is another [wo]man’s treasure. When it comes to a clothing exchange, this old adage could not be truer. You may think something is out of style, but someone else with a new perspective could pair your item with a piece from their wardrobe and make a new outfit. Style is often recycled. A fresh pair of eyes and some imagination can turn your something old into someone else’s something stylish.

I don’t have any clothes or accessories to bring to the event. Can I still participate?

Of course! Anyone who purchases a ticket will be able to pick up exchange items and shop the trunk show. The clothing exchange is a fun event where you can catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Don’t believe us? Check out pics from last year’s shindig.

Is the event only for women?

Not at all! Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.

I want to support, but can’t make the event.

That’s easy. Buy a ticket and spread the word: http://lookacute.eventbrite.com/. Extra items and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Crittenton Services of Greater Washington, an organization dedicated to strengthening the ability of young women to achieve their goals and the New Hope Recreation and Development Center, a community initiative based in Ellendale, Delaware designed to provide educational opportunities for at-risk youth, adults, and senior citizens.

If you have any other questions about the event, email us at acute.consulting@ymail.com or tweet @AcuteConsulting! See you Saturday!

Walk a Mile [or more] in My Shoes

by Jackie

So, I just discovered eBay. Please grant me a late pass. I’m used to just giving my gently worn clothes away, but I’m saving up to shop for something special, so I’ve decided to sell some of my once-worn items online. Through the magical world of Twitter, I’ve connected with some wonderful dolls who I trusted with my items.

I know what you’re thinking. What business of it is mine who wears my shoes after they’re sold? Well, I love my shoes. It’s almost as if I’m in a relationship with them. And, I’m more of the “If you should ever find someone new, I know [s]he’d better be good to you” than the “You Oughta Know” variety when it comes to break-ups. It’s important to me that they end up in a good home.

After successful sales, I’m slightly addicted to eBay now, so I’m sure that I will have more items for sale soon. Until then, happy shopping, and selling!

We’re so excited!

Sherria and I cannot wait to host the A*cute Clothing Exchange & Trunk Show next Saturday! Judging from your messages, many of you are excited, too! Some of you had some questions, so here are the answers:

I donated all of my clothing last year to include it in my taxes. Can I still participate?

Yes. Anyone who purchases a ticket will be able to browse the exchange items and shop the trunk show.

Is the event only for women?

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.

I want to support, but can’t make the event.

That’s easy. Buy a ticket. Proceeds will go towards Crittenton Services of Greater Washington, an organization dedicated to strengthening the ability of young women to achieve their goals.

Learn to love the skin you’re in.

I believe that we are all created beautifully, no matter what shape or size we are.

Whether it’s for your significant other, or for yourself, intimate photography sessions allow you to channel that beauty and feel comfortable in your skin.
