Fancy getting rid of some of your unwanted clothes for brand spanking new ones?
Well that’s exactly what I did last night, as I attended the Voucher Codes Swap Shop. An array of bloggers descended on Blackall Studios in Shoreditch armed with bags of their old clothes ready to swap for some new togs! I searched my wardrobe for pieces to take down, which worked out well as I also came across some holiday clothes ready for next week I forgot I had. I took a Dorothy Perkins clutch bag, some H&M shorts, a cardigan and a vintage floral dress. On arrival I handed my clothes over to the girls and received stamps for each item relating to where it was from, so H&M got me one stamp and so on…
I was then ready to raid the rails, what girl doesn’t love a bit of raking through clothes? As more and more bloggers turned up, more got added to the collection so I found myself doing a few laps every hour, in between Mojitos and picking up some sweets at the sweet stop, along with some fab cupcakes.
I ended up with a gorgeous orange dress from Oasis. As I was carrying it round, its owner spotted me and told me she had worn it to a wedding previous, these clothes had stories and now new homes. I also picked up a great knee-length velvet floral skirt, with tags on so never worn, how good. My friend picked up two ASOS dresses, so a good shopping trip for both of us.
It was a great way to get some new clothes and all from fellow fashion bloggers so you know your going to get something good.
I had a great evening , roll on the next one!
