Forget's all about the SWAPPING SPREE!!

This past weekend I hosted my very first clothing swap and the result was amazing! I felt like I was shopping with all my girlfriends AND I got the benefit refreshing my wardrobe without spending a penny. We made an evening of it.... drinking wine, eating yummy appies while trying on clothes and swapping the night away! By the end of the night, no one walked away empty-handed and I think we all were happy with our newly-aquired treasures.....but NO ONE was happier than me. From Summer weddings to Christmas parties...there is still a lot of time left this year and that means many more events to attend....and I definitely don't want to be tempted to buy a new outfit like I may have in past years! Although I have been doing really well on this no-shopping project, I must admit it was very grateful to  add a few new pieces to my wardrobe....including an amazing new dress for an upcoming wedding. Now I don't have to wear the same dress to all the weddings I am attending this year! So because I have been busy these past two months and because I got so many amazing pieces I think that I will consider the clothing swap my April AND May gift to myself.
Here are some highlights from the evening.

My 'store' for the evening

and Jac 'swapping' at my store

I think Jill found a dress she likes!

And so did I!
What a great was like it was made for me and is perfect for the wedding I am going to this weekend.

In case you couldn't tell.....I really love this dress! 
Wine and swapping are the perfect combo

Cashmere sweater, two tank tops, a scarf, Lululemon running shorts and two beautiful dresses. I think that qualifies as a  pretty successful swapping spree.

Thanks to all my girls for coming out to a great evening and I hope you are all as happy with the new additions to your wardrobe as I am with mine!

  1. Awesome! We've been struggling to pick a date for our clothing swap this year...seriously like 3 months of booked solid weekends between the 3 of us. You got some great stuff!!!
