Saturday night, I played hostess to a group of ladies ready for a closet re-fresh. That’s right, it was swap time! The big hit of the night turned out to be Laura’s delicious flourless brownies (really, everyone needs the recipe!), but fun clothes and accessories were also very much on the menu.
Last week, I listed some of the clothes that I was going to contribute to the swap. So … what did I get to take home? First up, a lovely pair of suede pumps, which will nicely fill a vacancy in my closet (I’ve been looking for purple shoes for a while).
My “haul” also included a cute tank with a crochet bib, a new necklace and a cashmere sweater. Check them out:
My guests did not leave empty-handed either. Laura scored, among other things, this pretty jewel-tone camisole, grey jacket, and multi-strand necklace – a very nice work outfit.
A lot of Laura’s pieces came from Robyn, so it only seems fair that Robyn would end up with some of Laura’s – like this beautiful knit top, black skirt (with awesome pleated detail at the hem), and multi-colour necklace. Add a (swapped) clutch, and you’ve got yourself a date night outfit!
Meanwhile, Angela scored a grey tank dress with crystal accents – perfect for showing off that fab figure!
Maria found a bunch of tops that tickled her fancy, including this pretty lace tank. A couple of knuckle-duster rings never hurt either.
Lisa also went with accessories, picking up a bunch of necklaces to complement her wardrobe.
All in all, a successful evening for everyone involved! Four large bags of clothing were also donated to Goodwill, so hopefully the items that did not find a new home with us will do some good elsewhere.
Till next year!
