Swap Till You Drop

Last week I had the opportunity to attend Swap Lulu's hosted by The Swapaholics and sponsored by Lulu's last Thursday in San Francisco! It was my first ever swap event and I wasn't sure what exactly to expect, but I knew that my Jeffrey Campbell wedges probably weren't going to help me make a mad dash for the goods so after work, I swapped (pardon the pun!) them for my trusty huarache flats and ditched the hat.

Straw hat - H&M | Yellow tank - Express | Agate tassel necklace - F21 | Gold double ring - F21
White rock ring - Francesca's | Bracelets - Target, DIY'd, & H&M | Vintage Timex watch
Grey maxi skirt - Target | Jeffrey Campbell 'Snick' wedges | Rebecca Minkoff 'Everyday' bag



Swap Outfit

I met and reconnected with so many lovely ladies at the pre-event gathering and I hope to see them all again soon. And the gals from The Swapaholics and Lulu's were absolute dolls. I had such a blast and the main event had even started!

Lulu's generously offered up a rack full of free clothes for the attendees and once that was announced, chaos ensued.Once mild-mannered swappers made a mad dash for the rack in attempts to grab some goods. I was able to get my hands on the pair of glittery heels you see in the corner of photo below, but alas, they were far too big for me so I traded my pal Kristen for a cute yellow crochet top she grabbed.But those glittery heels are going to continue to haunt my dreams if I don't find a pair in the right size pretty soon!

Goodies at Swap Lulu's

The swap itself turned out to be even more crazy fun! It was sort of fun to see my donations to the swap in the hands of other fashionable gals. I hope to see them around the blogosphere soon! ;) As for me, I ended up with quite a few awesome finds including a pair of red wedges from Lulu's, a skirt, a polka dot top, and an assortment of jewelry. Stay tuned to see them in an outfit post coming soon! ;)

Adiel, thanks so much for coming!! And for writing such an adorbs recap post. Sorry I was so crazed with setup that I didn't make it to the blogger mixer to get to chat more with you and the other girls! Next time for sure. :) Also, speaking of, I grabbed the other pair of glittery heels from the main event (size 7) -- maybe we can swap at NYFW in September after I wear them once or twice, if they're your size? We're hosting a Sip & Swap with Black Swan Wine at the beginning of the week. Are you coming to the city for fashion week? We'd love to see you again!

With #swaplove,
Melissa @TheSwapaholics
