Laura Jane hosted a clothing swap at her place Thursday night. Wine, snacks, free clothes and fun girls... my kind of evening. There were 10 of us total, 6 by the time Laura Jane thought to take a group photo, and I'm so glad she did, so that I have something to share. That's me in the back of course and these are my friends (left to right): Lisa, Laura Jane, Erin, Aura, and Julie Anne. Aren't they cute? We are sitting atop a couch covered in piles of clothes. Julie Anne decided to add a little Parisian flair to her ensemble with my old black beret.
It was supposed to be an opportunity for us to clear our closets of unworn clothes and maybe if we were lucky, to find a few new-to-us gems to take home. Well, as it turned out, I hit the jackpot and all I can say is so much for clearing out my closet and it pays to have stylish friends :) While I did get rid of a garbage bag full of stuff, here's a look at the grocery bag full of clothes that I took home:
I'm especially excited to have inherited Julie Anne's sparkly nautical minidress! The flap in the front of the dress has lil' star buttons around it! I call this my Milla grouping ;)
This I call Shiny Happy Tee-shirts Holding Hands. All so soft and comfy and I've been looking for a good stripey shirt too.
A second awesome dress score came my way when Erin bestowed upon me this lovely Free People dress made of the thinnest, softest, smoothest tee-shirt material. It feels like wearing air, so nice! Making a total of 10 shirts, 2 dresses, and a skirt... not bad.
This is Ben who was not there when I left and I am SO sorry to have missed this because knowing him, the shenanigans leading up to and following the taking of this photo were sure to have been pee-your-pants-funny. I see my beret became the joke prop of the night and Kudos to Ben for such seamless integration of that stuffed chameleon into this dapper ensemble! Thanks again Laura Jane for supplying the pics and organising the swap!
Oh, and be sure to check out my feet as featured today on Painfully Hip... yup, my feet... Thanks Deaver!
