Ever wonder why McDonald’s colour scheme is yellow and red?
We are naturally drawn to red, yellow and orange in our dining area or restaurants because psychologically it stimulates us to want to eat — and eat a lot. Studies show if you put your food on blue plates it can cause you to eat less.
Have no fear, a swishing party is totally different from a swinging party, you get to keep your clothes on!
Swishing is, like, totally trending on Twitter right now, and there are loads of stores and organisations who have jumped on the Swishing bandwagon.
So what is ‘swishing’ anyway? Glad you asked. Wikipedia definition here.
It’s really just a street term for ‘swapping clothes’ (while drinking wine and gossiping.)
How does it work? It’s not rocket science. You get a friend to volunteer their place for an afternoon and then you go over with any clothes you don’t want to wear anymore. Perhaps you’re not ready to give the item to a charity store just yet, maybe you don’t want to cut the proverbial biblical chord to the point where you never see the item again. Perhaps you think it’s easier to part ways by giving it to a friend so you get to see it every now and then? It could be a belt, earrings, a bangle, a pair of shoes, an old coat, a shirt, you get the idea.
It’s a great way to go shopping without any money every exchanging hands.
