On Thursday night, The Swapaholics hosted a swap in Downtown Crossing. After getting some really nice pieces from the previous swap, I was beyond excited to attend again! This time the swap was much smaller (200 people as compared to the 400 who went during Boston Fashion Week), the space was much bigger, and there were fitting rooms to try on the goods. I covered the swap for New Brahmin and went in early to get photos of the clothes before the carnage.
Look at everything, lined up and pretty!
I know what Chloe kitten is wearing for Halloween next year!
I also got shots of my favorite Boston bloggers.
That’s Punky aka Amy Chase and Melissa Massello, the founders of The Swapaholics. Chloe kitten has Amy to thank for her new outfit!
Stephanie of Pretty.Fashionable. is literally elated about her new jeans. I was making the same face about her teeny waist.
Julie O’Boyle of Orchard Grey and her man. It takes a lot of self-restraint to keep from stroking her hair whenever I see her. It’s amazing, right?
There’s Marissa from The Well-Appointed Catwalk, Becca from Free Honey, some weird chick in the middle, Katy from Modly Chic, and Stephanie. Becca and Marissa are officially my Boston fashion event buddies- they are always up for a fun night out and a drink or two! ♥
While I was photographing the goods, I spotted two Rodarte for Target dresses that I wanted but by the time I got in for the actual swap they were long gone. But don’t worry, I managed to get some cool things. Okay, I’m being modest- I am love with everything I brought home! I got a pair of Helmut Lang skinny jeans, a neon green Helmut Lang tee, a pair of Dolce Vita platform heels, a white Celine jacket, a white J.Crew safari shirt, and a few nice work shirts. Expect to see all my new goodies pop up in upcoming outfit posts!
Now, there is one more amazing piece I brought home. I loved it so much that I had to try it on at the swap. But that big reveal will come at a later date…
