What I Wore Wednesday & a clothing swap

9.05.2012

Last week I went to my first ever clothing swap. 

BEST IDEA EVER.

My friend Joni gathered a bunch of girlfriends, had everyone bring clothes/accessories that they don't wear/use anymore, arranged them around the room in categories like pants, skirts, blouses, etc., set up a couple of mirrors, and we went shopping!

(We had eight ladies come so the first go-round rule was 2 items from each category until everyone had looked everything over, and then go crazy after that. Don't forget to take turns showing off your haul at the end!). 

The leftover items were then donated to a local thrift store.

This is what I brought home... 
A like-new purse, two scarves, a maxi skirt, REI puffer vest, cropped cardy, cute striped tank, and a pretty blouse. 

I had to wear the skirt right away.

Last Wednesday
Yard sale tee, thrifted belt, FREE skirt, Target sandals, Premier Designs bracelet.

And then I went camping and took zero outfit pictures.

Monday
Target sweater & sandals, Shade tank, thrifted shorts, Premier Designs necklace.

Tuesday
Target dress & sandals, Old Navy cardy, Walmart leggings, thrifted bracelet, Bass outlet necklace.

I kinda sorta forgot about my new stuff amid the chaos of unpacking and doing one thousand loads of camping laundry. But now I'm excited to try out the rest of my new-to-me clothes and accessories!
(Except for the vest. Not quite ready to don down just yet.)

Happy Wednesday!

  6. Great choice with the skirt. Really perfect for you.

    We have a clothing swap with friends called the Naked Lady Party. I have no idea why this is the name, but there's lunch, drinks, and a swap. Very classy and very fun. Ours is next month and this year I promise to actually document it.

  12. I've attended one clothing swap but it was fun to come home with some new to me clothes, and get rid of some clothes as well. Win-win in my book. The "new" maxi skirt looks super cute on you.
