Weekend Review: Outfits & Clothing Swap

Just want to do a quick post since I just found out a few hours ago I am going to Palm Springs tomorrow morning.  Don't have to much time to pack and plan my outfits, but its only for 2 days and it's for my boyfriends business.  While he is doing his business stuff I guess I can stroll the shops and hang out at the outlets.  I'm always up for some good shopping! Any how back to the this post.  This weekend I had the pleasure of meeting some great ladies at the LA Clothing Swap hosted by Jennifer from Stay Classy LA.  This way my first time attending a clothing swap and it was so much fun.  Basically everyone brought their clothes and hung it on racks and tables.  Every person got to browse through racks and clothes and picked what they liked to try on. If you found something you liked and fit, its yours!  I was very excited to connect with other bloggers and people from Fatshionista community.  Overall I think it was a success and everyone was so nice and cool.  I was able to score some good stuff, some tops and jeans and a few accessories.  I believe there will another clothing swap planned for the fall.  If you are in the So Cal area and didn't make it to this one you should come join the fun.  I will difinately keep you updated.  If have the chance to attend a clothing swap in your area you should go! Better yet you can organize your own.  I also attended a local art exhibit this weekend and saw some good photography.  My BF and I decided we need to get out more and support local arts.  I didn't get any pics from the art show but I did manage to get a outfit pic and some from the clothing swap.  FYI the art exhibit was a airport hanger so it was tres casual.  The dummy forgot her camera for both events, so all pics were taken with my iphone so don't judge the quality.  :)
On to the photos! Enjoy...as always love to read your comments and thoughts.

  3. Thanks Jennifer, I remember Nikol but was not sure if she has blog or website. If she does can you please let me know what it is. I will add their names to the post. Yes it was awesome, all my friends are thin and don't have any friends that are plus size so shopping and talking about fashion is not as fun. Glad I met some cool gals I can dish about plus size fashion!!
