Ready, Set, Swap!
This past weekend I held a clothing and book swap at my apartment. It was tons of fun–and not only did I enjoy myself, eating snacks and chatting with friends, but I came away with quite an impressive haul of “new to me” items! Everyone who attended left with at least one new item of clothing and accessory, and in some cases, a new book! (I took Olive Kittridge–have you read it?). Have you ever been to a swap before? Would you?

Even Chief immensely enjoyed himself!
This outfit incorporates 4 of my new items: a basic gray skirt, a gold striped sweater, a blue jacket, and a tortoiseshell necklace. I wore this the rest of the day!
I took pictures of the rest of the stuff I got, but the lighting wasn’t right and they came out terribly, so here’s a list instead. I got (not including the items pictured above):
- a pink J. Crew halter sundress
- a brown dolman-sleeved top
- a basic olive green dress from Forever 21
- a gray Banana Republic sweater
- a vintage navy houndstooth skirt
- a headband
- 2 belts
- a black short sleeved sweater
- a pale pink scarf
- hoop earrings
- a necklace
- a brand-new Michael Kors silk shell
- a gray felt hat
