DC Sip & Swap

DC Swap

100+ purposeful women in a room full of free clothes.  Behold: the Swap.

DC Swap
Sh*t just got real.

Even with my rather pathetic swapping skills (here's a tip: put down your glass of wine), I managed to walk away with some pretty solid finds.

Major thanks to the lovely hosts, Amy and Melissa, for putting on such on such an amazing event! My favorite thing about this event (aside from the free stuff, of course) was getting to see many DMV bloggers (like Vivi, Christen, G., Vanessa, Alina, Megan, Elizabeth, and Vyque) outside of the virtual social-sphere. Looking forward to the next one!

I wished I fixed my necklaces a bit before taking the picture. Ah well. For my 1st clothing swap, it wasn't bad at all. But like you said, the best part was meeting other DC fashion bloggers. Hope to see you soon at another meetup!

Christen said...

Agreed, it WAS fun meeting DC bloggers in person. And now that I've "sobered up," I actually came away with some pretty solid finds. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I literally busted out laughing so hard at your 'sh*t just got real' caption that my hubby came in to see what I was laughing at. Too funny. I'm hoping to see some swaps in my area soon. :-)

Wow, this looks like such a fun event! I wish that these types of things existed where I live. Alas, this is what come of living in a small town.

It was so great to meet you!

Once I had a good night's sleep, I looked at my grabs and also feel I got some good pieces. Boy was that an experience! :)

Elizabeth said...

Love your photos! Was so great to see you!

G. said...

It was so nice to meet you! And I was wondering how you were going to swap while holding that wine glass, haha! It was hard enough for me without holding a glass!

Hope to see you again soon!
