the swap


The clothing swap last night was totally bananas! Elbows were thrown, wine was splashed, tears were shed. Ok, the tears part is an exaggeration, but the swap did get pretty intense. All the swappers lined up outside the doors and at the stroke of 8:00 they let us run in to attack the piles of clothes like a herd of bulls. I was a little too overwhelmed to really dig through the goods, but I did bring home one cute dress and had a fun night chatting with fellow bloggers and swappers. Thanks to the Swapaholics and Lulus.com for hosting a cool event!

  15. I still cant believe that girl got pushed into the rack! Also, this chick hoarding all this stuff kind of scares me! I got home and realized that my bag had a big nordstroms paper bag crumpled in it and two Lulus swap bags as dead weight in my sack making it look huge! One pair of the pants I got had a busted zipper, so I had to totally throw those away. One top didnt fit either,so I gave it to my sister. I ended up with 10 things. 1 jacket, 1 dress, 1 sweater, 1 skirt, 1 scarf, 2 pants, and 3 tops. Not too bad, but I did get a better look than most helping put all the stuff out!
