one of my favorite newsblog sites, jezebel, hosted a fashion swap meet at their office in soho last night. (they share their office with gawker, their parent newsblog site.)
i am lucky enough to know maria, who knows a writer at jezebel. so i was lucky enough to go.
what you do is bring at least one item of clothing you are over and don't want to wear anymore. i brought three. and then you get to rummage through all the other clothes and take whatever you want.
and there's booze and cheese! but i was really tempted by the HUGE jar of nutella in the office kitchen.
we hung around for a while because as more people showed up, more stuff came in. i did pretty well for myself, some button ups, a skirt and some jeans.
so that's pretty cool.
and whatever wasn't taken last night was donated to charity. that's cool too.
i like this swap meet idea. it's like thrift shopping but free? and kind of exciting because you feel like you're a part of something... exciting? (ha, i'm so eloquent.)
the pink vespa i spotted on my way to the swap meet. couldn't resist.
last photo is of me with my ladies: maria and mala. sadly, suzie is not photoed who did stop by for a bit.
