2nd Annual Clothing Swap

I’ve been blogging for nearly two years and during that time my style has gone through many changes. When I first began I was inspired and drawn to a more modern, polished look which included blazers and pants. As time progressed so did my interests and clothing choices. I realized that my dream wardrobe existed in my size and made the conscious effort to obtain my dream pieces. During that time I’ve found some of my favourite items ever but recently I came across the dress. The dress that I thought I’d never own but constantly oggled at when it’d pop up on my dashboard. The dress that I thought I’d only dream about and never really own but its mine now and I can hardly believe it. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, its the one I’m wearing in the photos above.
I really, really wanted to save the first official wear for a special occasion. Naturally I picked the 2nd annual Toronto clothing swap to make its premiere. Maxey and I felt pretty stressed about doing a big event this year for personal reasons so we decided to keep it small, inviting a few fashion bloggers and friends that lived locally. It was kind of sad not to have such a big event again but getting to talk intimately with the ladies (+ Max!) felt really nice and relaxing. It was a lot easier to exchange and see what was up for grabs too and all of the ladies were very respectful of the nabbing process. I walked away with a lot of really lovely pieces that I simply cannot wait to wear out!

    You look lovely! I know exactly what you mean about the discovery that you can have your dream dress. It's wonderful. I saw a beautiful red foral fifties dress in a shop window this week and felt the "if only" pang and then I realised that In fact I had a dress just like it.

    I was thinking your dress looked familiar – and then it dawned on me that I've seen it on a bunch of skinny bodies. Can I just say that your figure actually fits that dress SOOO much better than any of them?! 'Cause it does!

    Also, itt must have been a cat fight for all the good stuff at the swap because you are all such snappy dressers. 🙂
