Yesterday I went to what might have been the coolest blog event I have been to thus far. I attended the #Swaplulu's night of fun and fashion event and it was RADI-COOL! When I arrived I was checked in and I dropped off a bag of my items (good stuff! Juicy, Anthro, H&M and Joie that was left to the wayside) and was given a swaping bag and was told to go to the pre-event cocktail hour. There I chatted with my best bloggy friends (Natalie, Elisabeth, LAUR!, Jeanne, Michelle, Rebecca, Eli, Santina, Elisabeth and more). After some mingling the Lulu's team came out and announced they had hand selected a piece for everyone at the event, mind you there about 100 ladies there, and it was going to be a free for all to grab a piece. Luckily I was close to the front but it was a mad house when they yelled "Go!", I blindly grabbed a striped sleeve (y'all know I heart stripes) not knowing what the heck it was and ran out of the line-of-fire.
I ended up grabbing The Mink Pink Inca Black and White dress, which all my bloggie besties deemed "SO Amber".
We snacked some more on Pretzel Crisps, um Buffalo Chicken Pretzel Crips whaaaa? Bomb.
Then we waited for the real swap to begin, where Lulu's hid some of there real items in!! People were jazzing to say the least. I was a *bit* scared. Seriously.
I had the genius idea to sneak through the side, I'm kinda a maverick and I just don't give a shoot. My game face was on.
I ended up with radical stuff! I found a stash of accessories fairly far into the game, that been passed over so I just couldn't help myself. I got some amazing earring, I think I'll rock them with my dress. I also ended getting some sweet stuff at the swap including a Forever 21 new with tags, so I was pumped. And all the leftover pieces were donated to the Good Will.
I got this amazing bracelet, that although I loved, but I gave to my best friend Jen because I've never seen anything so perfectly her. She's a pink lady!
In any case I'm hooked on swapping and had a blast. Big Thanks to the Lulu's and Swap.com team!! Thank you so much!
