Okay girls, bring it in.  You’ve been waiting for it and it’s finally here…’s better than raiding your big sister and her cool friends’ closet cause it’s free and you don’t have to be sneaky bout it…’s the Naked Ladies Clothing Swap!  This Week!  WHAT IS UP!

Surely you already know why clothing swaps are awesome, but just in case you need the point driven home here’s the deal: swapping clothes is one of the basic tenants of Slow Fashion. It’s everything all rolled into one: recycling, upycling, sidecycling (ok I made that one up), repurposing, saving money, preventing waste, staying local, finding clothes you can’t find in stores anymore, igniting your creativity! So get to it – swap out items that have slowly made their way to the back of your closet and bottom drawers for jazzy new summer grub!


And as if that wasn’t enough, Sweet Cycle Apparel will be selling our locally made “Slow Your Fashion” t-shirts.  I mean, you’re already supporting the ideals of slow fashion just by being there so why not trumpet it out and let people know that foxy girls everywhere are participating in the movement in lots of different ways!  We made these t-shirts because we are PROUD to be part of the movement, and we know you are too.

We freakin’ LOVE slow fashion and we can’t hide it anymore! These shirts are so comfy, you won’t want to take them off, plus they are hand-printed on eco-friendly tees. It’s a good way to spread the word, show support, and BONUS: a portion of the proceeds of each t-shirt benefits WIN-WIN!
