Sip & Swap Event

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you have the dish on the Sip & Swap I’m hosting with O So Chic on Saturday, 4/28. Well, if not, then I’m excited to announce the second annual Sip & Swap. Last year the ladies of O So Chic hosted this event and this year we decided to collaborate.

Don’t know what a Sip & Swap is? It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’ll be an afternoon of sipping on cocktails {courtesy of Ciroc} and swapping clothes. Great, right?

Bring your clean, gently worn clothes, shoes and accessories and you can swap them with other fashionable ladies. Any clothes that haven’t been swapped after the event, are being donated to the thrift store, Housing Works.

Thrifty Threads – Dressy Casual

Anytime someone asks me how I would describe my style, I tend to say casual chic or dressy casual. On most occasions I don’t like being too gussied up but I also love a few stand out pieces. Dressy trousers tend to make me think of a stuffy corporate environment, which is totally not my style, but I found a pair that I had to have during O So Chic‘s clothing swap party. Instead of rocking the pants as is, I cuffed them up and threw on a bright top and sparkly shoes for a more relaxed look.

I love how the red/burnt orange Gucci top I snagged for $1 at the Goodwill Outlet stands out with the pants. Yes, Gucci for $1! Be sure to check in your area to see if there’s an Outlet near you, clothes are priced by the pound and you can walk away with great deals.
