Last night The Swapaholics came to DC and held a Swap event – and it was so fun! I met up with my friend E, and we had a great time hanging out, meeting new people and swapping. Though admittedly, I don’t think we were cut throat enough to really score. Girls literally ran in when the doors opened, whereas we strolled in with glasses of wine and spent a lot of time feeling overwhelmed and confused hehe.
What really shocked me was how serious some people were! I was chatting to a gal before we all went in, and as they opened the space up, she ran off and yelled back at me “we’re no longer friends hahaha” – it was hilarious. And no kidding, people were literally trying on clothing in the middle of the room. Like take off all your clothing. yikes! That’s way too intense for me, I brought a tape measure, but other than that i just tried on at home and it all fit, so yay! I walked away with a few really cute items – but the most fun was just hanging out with E, Elizabeth, Allie, Vivi, Vyque, Amy and Melissa. Here’s hoping there’s another swap soon!
I didn’t take my camera (*ahem* i’ll take any excuse to wear a tiny purse, but it aint condusive to carrying a giant DSLR) – But incase you’re interested, here are a few snaps I found around the web. Though I warn you, flash photography does not compliment my incredibly pale complexion…
