swap meet

dress  vintage
flower crown  alexandra grecco
shoes  vintage ferragamo

A few days ago I went to a clothing swap hosted by Lulu's. My date for the evening was the adorable Annalise and we were not prepared for the madness that ensued. I had never been to a swap before so I took advantage of the free wine bar in order to prepare myself for potential mayhem. And let me tell you, these ladies went WILD. I didn't even attempt to take anything because I didn't feel like using my elbows. Instead I took silly photos with Annalise, Erin and James (who I met for the first time that evening) and ate perhaps more than my fair share of hors d'oeuvres. It was fun watching all the girls running around and snatching things up but I guess in the end I'm more of a swap observer.

Thanks to Punky, Julie, and Stephanie for being such sweethearts and inviting me to join!

A trio of lovely bloggers: Erin, James and Annalise.

Woweee your outfit is amazing. Clothing swaps have always intimidated me too, I actually ditch out on one today but I'm hoping to attend one in the near future.

I didn't realise clothing swaps were so wild?! I've always thought everyone would be overly polite and well-behaved!
I love that floral crown - so sweet and so perfect with your lacey dress :)

Those shoes, so very lovely!
I organised a clothes swap once, but in a more calm and patient way, a smaller gathering, where everyone could try on things and just trade if you both liked something. Those were the best, don't like the hectic ones :)

Adiel said...

Great recap! Such a fun event! I was admiring your outfit all night, that dress is great!


Ana Peregrine said...
