ModSwap- Swap is the New Shop!

And the fun don’t stop! :D  Last Friday, Alex and I met up and went to the ModSwap, an event organized by The Swapaholics and Modcloth!  For both of us, this was our first swap!  When we walked into the room, we were handed a super cute tote and we were allowed to chose one Modcloth item for ourselves.  Then we tagged the two items we had brought to swap and exchanged them for other clothes that caught our eye.  It’s such a great way to recycle old clothes and give them a new home :)

Also, they had a super cute background set up, as well as great props, so Alex and I couldn’t resist hamming it up for a bit!  :D

In between the swapping clothes and sipping drinks and snapping pictures, I also had the chance to meet some great bloggers in real life!  First, I met Noelani from Mon Petit Chou Chou who was so pretty and nice!  We had missed each other on Wednesday, so I was really glad we were able to meet up at this event.  I also met the lovely Mel from Une Vie Geniale– she was so very sweet and fun to chat with and it was also her birthday that day!

Had to snap a picture with Katy of course!
Thanks for taking some of these pictures Alex! =)

In addition to these lovely gals, I spotted some of my other favorites including Tieka from Selective Potential and Julie from Orchid Grey.  I even managed to snag one of Julie’s swap items- this beautiful dress that I can’t wait to wear!

Now that I’ve been to my first swap, I think I’m addicted! =)  Thanks so much to Modcloth and The Swapaholics for organizing such a fantastic event!  You can check out more pictures of all the fabulous bloggers on The Swapaholics Facebook Page and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for pictures of my swap scores!
