Swap swag

One of the big events at last weekend's TxSC was the clothing swap presented by and Lulus.  I was originally very stressed out about the whole thing, but it ended up being a total blast. I even scored some adorable pieces.

I took home some sexy, red heels that I can barely walk in from Lisa Gets Dressed.
 I also scored a lovely red sweater with shoulder cut-outs from Metsy Shines.
I decided to pair them together with a pleated, polka-dot skirt I thrifted this weekend and a black belt.

I really did have to practice walking in these.

I felt very Carmen in this combination. 

Can you tell that I love free things? ;-)

What about you? Have you scored some awesome items at clothing swaps before? 
Let me know in a comment below!


  1. Just had to look amazing. Red is so your color! And you were lucky to swap from Metsy - the woman has great taste.

  2. @Elissa Awwwwww, thanks so much! When I was a kid, some bully used to tell me that I looked awful in red. As a result, I stayed away from that color for most of my life. I had been missing out!

    Also, Metsy is fabulous. I want to raid her closet. <3

  3. You look awesome in your new finds! I love the shoes especially, I'm such a sucker for cute shoes.

  4. I really love this whole look! Very on trend. Never done a swap but looks like it was a success for you!

  5. awesome finds!! Thanks for coming!

  6. You look absolutely awesome! I love that you love to jump! I giggle each time I see one of your jumping pictures! Perfection!

    Those shoes are NICE! Great look!

  7. I just saw this post! You look wonderful in red and I'm thrilled my shirt went to such a lovely woman. So glad to find your blog!
