With summer around the corner, women are going through a rite of Spring called the “cleaning out the closet.” But after you’ve donated that paisley print raincoat and other “what was I thinking?” items, it’s time to pick up some new clothes and shoes, right? Take a gander at what some celebs are ”swaping” from their spring-cleaning that you can pick up for a steal at HipSwap.
Karina Smirnoff from the hit show DWTS recently donated some gorgeous shoes: “I’d love for someone to enjoy my things and make memories with them, too,” she said. To snag these items, make sure to go HipSwap.com on May 21 , when everything goes live. We have our eye on a pair of shoes that she wore on the show (“dancing shoes are suede and are super-flexible”), and a stunning pair of cowboy boots (“My favorite movie growing up was Gone With The Wind and I really wanted to embrace the country lifestyle.”)
As for who the stunner thinks will win next week, “It’s anyone’s game, but I’d love for a girl to win,” she confessed. “It will ultimately come down to the freestyle: Donald is strong, William is sexy, and Katherine rocks.”
(As with all Hipswaps, a portion of proceeds from the sale will go to the AIM (Alternative Intervention Models), a non-profit organization which brings the arts to children in underprivileged families and those who are at risk).
