On Saturday evening I hosted my first clothing swap and it was a rousing success! I made cocktails (sidecars) for all of the girls, we snacked, chatted, and most importantly, we swapped. Overall, I would say we all left with some great new goods. My favorite find of the evening is this dress. . .
I also found several cute tops, some new-to-me hand-knit goods from my friend, Alice, a new pair of gloves, some jewelry (a bracelet, a jasper pendant, some amber earrings), and a cute cardigan. I practically live in cardigans this time of the year, so this was a major score.
Also, of note, meeting new people! One of my invited friends, Kendra, brought along two of her friends. It was such a great way to meet new folks.
I'll definitely be having more of these swaps in the future. Fun, thrifty-ness, and fashion all rolled into one great evening!
