Clothing Swap

I hosted a clothing swap last night.  It was so much fun and everyone left with something!  Plus I had lots to take to the Matthews Help Center afterward.
We only had to have one "style off" and it was too hard to tell which person looked best with the item.  We ended up having them pick a number.
It was fun trying to guess who brought what or seeing an item and immediately thinking of who that item would look good on.

Some people were intimidated about bringing clothes, but once they got there they realized there was no need.  I highly recommend holding your own swap party.  Thanks to all those from FBFF that helped me to figure out what I was doing.

Today I am wearing some of my finds from last night
Check out this great maxi skirt. 
I have been wanting a maxi for awhile now and now I have one! 
I got some really great stuff and have to try and squeeze it all in before the 30 for 30 starts on Feb. 1!
I passed up this great pink shirt the first go around, but then I was I like... it's pink what's not to love!

LOVE the pink blouse on you! :)
It was so much fun seeing things we once loved (or at least liked enough to buy!) find new life on someone else! Pink is your color girl!
