“Give + Take Swap Boutique is the best-kept secret in Los Angeles,” said Reiner, who will guest on ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder” this fall. “I love being a member—it’s especially great when you’re rotating looks for the red carpet. I bring great stuff in, and take amazing stuff out!”

Santa Monica swap boutique, Give + Take is revolutionizing the way us gals shop. Gone are the days of frivolous spending and purchasing items you’ll only wear once. You know, like that stunning $1000 silk blue Willow dress I purchased for my 21st birthday, only to never wear again…

Shopping has always been my cardio, however, as I’ve grown older (and infinitely wiser), I’ve started to realize that smart shopping is the most effective type of workout. You don’t need to spend an obscene amount of money to look good. And wearing the same outfit twice certainly isn’t going to kill anyone. Oh, and style swap’s are the new black.

Give + Take members are able to fully embrace this lifestyle – getting credit for the clothes and accessories that they contribute and spending that credit on new goodies found in the store.

It’s Rent-the-Runway meets your favorite shopping destination. Give + Take members can keep their hot new looks — or return them the next day for a completely different outfit. Have a party Saturday night and nothing new to wear? Swap for a dress at lunch, wear it out at night, clean it Sunday morning and exchange it that afternoon. Without the limitations and pressures of a private swap, Give + Take helps women save money and stay stylish.

Last Sunday night, the store held a natural beauty pop-up event hosted by “Orange is the New Black” babe and Give + Take member, Alysia Reiner. Women flocked together to shop, wine, dine and beautify themselves. What else could us ladies possibly need in life? 

With monthly private events and staff on hand to share style suggestions, Give + Take is more than a store—it’s a community. Get amongst it.
