The Swap Event Recap at Wix Lounge


We did it! I think it's safe to say the swap event last night was a success. Thank you so much to everyone who came out and showed their support. It meant so much to me and the other hosts! It was my first time ever organizing an event from start to finish so I wanted everything to be perfect. Unfortunately that meant Kim went into stress case mode and I apologize for not going around and socializing more. I just wanted to make sure everyone else enjoyed themselves but forgot to enjoy the night myself. Thankfully my friend Nicole of Style Me BAD went around and took photos for me because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to recap the event for you!

Yes this was sadly the best picture of me I could find
Your hostesses with the mostess: Laura of LOL Beauty, Chris of The Tiny Tie Rant, Tessa of Couture Lust, and Kristina of Beauty in NYC. I wore my J.Crew sequin top, J.Crew capri trousers, China Glaze's "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" neon yellow nail polish, my Ann Taylor rose gold rings, and the shoes are Naturalizer from Zappos years ago!

Thanks to Katy of Modly Chic for the inspiration
We handed out flyers which included all the information about the evening and a list of all attendees with their blog names and Twitter handles so they could keep in touch. We also gave them shopping bags to hold their items in while swapping.

Everyone settling in

We organized the items into categories but as you can see we had so much stuff it was hard to tell where one category ended and another began!

Lots of terrific beauty items
The Tiny Tie Rant captured my neon nails


Thanks to Spark Rebel we were able to feed our guests a delicious cheese platter, humus platter, grapes and wine. I think there was cheese and wine for days!

Delicious home baked goods thanks to my brother's girlfriend (she's awesome!)
Me and the gorgeous Lindsay of SparkRebel
We must give a special thank you to all the sponsors for the evening for without them this event would have not been possible. Thank you to Wix Lounge for letting us use their wonderful space for the evening. Any of those who work at home, definitely check out their free co-working space steps away from Union Square. Thank you to Spark Rebel for helping with food and drinks for the night. Sign up for this collaborative fashion and shopping inspiration destination where products, blogs, pictures and content are added, shared and discovered. It's like Pinterest but for shopping! And thank you to Goodwill who graciously came and picked up anything that hadn't been swapped at the end of the evening. They do terrific work! Be sure to visit their Facebook Fan Page and follow them on Twitter. Please keep them in mind when you’re thinking of making a clothing donation in the future.

Can't wait to see everybody's photos (hopefully find a better one of me!)
