urbanebloc swap x shop event

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Hey guys! I attended my first clothing swap on Sunday afternoon hosted by Gloria at urbanebloc. I've read her blog before through my friend Christine and it was so nice finally meeting her - she's super sweet and outgoing!

I'm sure most of you know how clothing swaps work (kind of like the cookie swap I went to but with clothes instead!) and it's pretty self-explanatory. I brought 5 items with me to part with, and took home 5 "new" pieces. I was helping out with the event so unfortunately I didn't get to see everything that came in at the beginning (it was like boxing day where most people come really early with a ton of clothing, and as the day continues, there's slightly less guests and the racks get a little more bare). The venue was small and cozy - very grungy feel but made light and feminine with the girly decorations hanging from the roof
LOFT bags of way too much vitamin water and popchips lol 
My 5 "new" pieces! From left to right: A slouchy oversized knit cardigan from Joe Fresh, a gray v-neck sweater from HM, a purple silk sleeveless blouse from Wilfred, an emerald green sleeveless top from Banana Republic, and a navy green H&M dress. I can't wait to mix these into my closet and make new ootds!

For helping out with the event, we were given these cute little "thank-you" packages with make-up inside. From left to right - Live Clean Exotic Vitality Monoi Oil leave-in conditioner spray, Givenchy Le Rouge in #304 Mandarine Bolero, L'Oreal Colour Riche in Beyond Pink, Colour Club nail polish in Warhol and a mini tub of black sparkles (i have NO idea what this is and there's conveniently no label lol) I initially assumed it was eyeshadow but it's extremely loose powder so I'm thinking it might be for nails? I dont know lol Owell, either way, I'm excited to try these out and review 'em!  Thanks again so much Christine and Gloria!
