My friend Thea invited me to a clothing swap on Saturday afternoon, and even though I just gave four big boxes to Salvation Army filled with clothes and had nothing to bring, I decided to go. My contribution? A bottle of wine and Sour Patch Kids.
I get overwhelmed when I have too many choices, but I ended up finding some cute things! And yeah, wearing other people's clothes is a bit weird, but whateves, it's FREE.
I hooked Liza up with some beauty products since her side gig as a makeup artist is really taking off!
I snagged this gray fitted coat. It was a little snug, but I had layers on, so I can make it work. Plus, I loved the puffy collar.
I definitely didn't need this bag, but I took it anyway. It's not even quite my style, but I loved the colors—it would be handy on a vacation, in let's say...Jamaica, no? (Wink, wink)
Thea and I spent the majority of our time eating and drinking in the kitchen. I was a bit hungover from the night before, but she attacked the bevs like a champ. I soon realized she was tipsy when she gave me a speech that started, "Dude, you don't give yourself enough credit. You act like you're a four, but really you're like...a nine." It was funny. Thanks for the pep talk, The!
She scored a couple thin V-neck sweaters. I was kinda jeals because I need good basics like that! Ohh well, I didn't do much scouring, so I guess I can't complain.
The two words that best describe me these days: Hot.Mess. I picked these undies up as well. (Don't worry, they haven't been worn!)
All in all, it was a success. I met new people, picked up a few FREE goodies, and I didn't waste my Saturday on the couch watching The Real Housewives of Orange County reruns. Have you ever been to a clothing swap? And do you shop at consignment stores often?
