Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go. To reflect on the year—where we’ve been, and where we’re going. Life’s seasonality creeps into our closets too, so this year’s Fall Style Swap Indy at the Indiana Design Center in Carmel this Friday, Nov. 15 from 5 – 9 p.m. serves as a gratifying tribute to both your KonMari Method life goals and diehard Midwestern drive to score a great deal. (Having your girlfriends along for the ride makes it all the sweeter.)
Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.
As part of the new Indy Maven Signature Event Series, Style Swap Indy is back (after a brief hiatus) due to repeated pleas championing its return by local fashion lovers. For those of you who are new to the Swap scene, we offer “5 Things to Know about Style Swap Indy” to get you in the right frame of mind.
Your general admission ticket includes:
- Complimentary food and drink,
- A free reusable shopping bag,
- A copy of the latest issue of PATTERN magazine
