The Start of Something New: Frock Swap

Today marks the day of something pretty fun!

After much discussion on twitter and then many, many emails back and fourth, EricaDebbieDonna and myself are starting on a fun little adventure of frock swapping! Much like the lovely American girls who are Flock Together, we are commencing on a swapping journey together.

I can not tell you how excited i am to be doing this.

With the #100dayshoppingban still in action (46 days to go..and counting!!) this is a wonderful way to add an injection of new-to-me goodies without parting with any cash. Perfect huh?!

Once we had established our schedule and got everything in place (thanks Erica) we all had to choose 2 pieces from our own wardrobe that we find difficult to style or we have run out of steam with. You know, those difficult ones which gaze longingly at you from the rail just begging to be worn? Well they are being given a new lease of life.

Here is what i have sent on to my first recipient Donna

 This dress i posted last summer and i professed undying love to it (as i always do, have you noticed,lol!) But you know what, for the past 7 months it’s just been hanging in my wardobe looking all sad and unworn. Why? I don’t really know, i just don’t seem to grab it..ever. Its real comfy and has a beautiful print, but yeh, worn once…shameful.


From a more recent post this stripey dress. I have had this dress years and years, but its had so little wear it. Lately i tried it again, but i gotta say, its still not an item i would grab again anytime soon. So on his merry little way it shall go to see if the girls can find better ways to style it/ make it look good!

I really hope you guys will follow along with us and watch out for our first styling of each others pieces! I am SO excited!! Bring on the new-to-me clothes!!

    This is such a great idea! I have tons of clothes that sit in my closet collecting dust. And I love the idea of a 100 day shopping ban. You've inspired me to give up shopping for Lent and rediscover the items I already have in my closet. Thanks!
