Yesterday, I attended a Blogger and Friend's Clothes Swap. I'd never been to one before, but let's just say this: I'm hooked! What a great way to meet new people and learn more about everyone than by trading clothes!
The basic idea: Bring some clothes you would lend a friend, but that you aren't as in love with anymore. Everyone lays out/hangs up/folds these clothes, and then everyone takes turns picking something they like (that's not theirs). I walked away with a "new to me" pair of oxblood Doc Martens (showcased below - I couldn't wait to put them on!), an American Flag windbreaker, a pencil skirt, and some sweaters - ALL of which I can't wait to style and show you all on this blog!
Check out some photos from the event below!

FREE FOR ALL!
A clothes swap posed a challenge to me outfit-wise. I wanted to be comfortable, and be able to try on stuff over what I was wearing, but also be fashion-forward enough to impress the new ladies I met. I'm not sure I succeeded with the latter, but I quite liked my outfit, plus Megan was able to snap these GREAT photos!
