Those amazing women champions of body love are back, Sunday, Nov. 2, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a pop-up clothing swap to benefit the Body Love Conference at the YWCA, 525 N. Bonita Ave. If you've been to a clothing swap in the past then you understand the concept—bring some clothing and accessories that are in good condition and swap them for clothes that you want.

That's what's going on here, but first, look, these are good folks, led by Body Love Conference found Jes Baker, so that means this is not just a basic swap but an amazing body love celebration and party, too. And all proceeds benefit the next Body Love Conference in the planning stages for 2015.

In the body love tradition, this is a swap for women of all sizes, and it sounds like a great place to hang out with your friends trying on clothes in a body positive atmosphere. Personal stylists are going to be on hand (you know, your friends could be clueless), to help you out with ideas and encouragement. There will also be professional make-up artists, hair stylists and photographers to capture you at your best.

If you bring items to swap, cost is $8, and if you just want to shop, it's a $15 admission. There will also be local crafters and jewelry designers on hand in a special pop-up shop just for the occasion. All leftover clothing not swapped will be donated to the YWCA program Your Sister's Closet, which provides women reentering the workforce with several professional outfits for job interviews and that new job.
