How To Host A Clothing Swap Party

how to host a clothing swapA few months back, my fabulous roommate Sophia and I decided to invite some of our favorite girls over for a leisurely ladies afternoon at our home. All of our friends are extremely stylish in their own right, so we decided to mix it up with a clothing swap and called our gathering the Sunday Sip & Swap.

While this was a few months ago, with the weather change calling for us east coaster to change out our closets for the new season, I thought this post would be right on time to help spark some ideas for your fall gatherings.

So I had to find out what their new curl enhancing product was all about….

It’s Leather Time!

The temperatures have been brisk…not quite boots and jacket weather yet, but it’s definitely cooler out. So, I’ve been transitioning in some of my wardrobe pieces in staple fall/winter fabrics and materials, like this leather vest.

11 Ways Real Life in NYC Is Actually Like ‘Sex And The City’

A few weeks back, I did a post about how ‘Sex And The City’ and real life in NYC just don’t add up (that’s your cue to read it here).  And while, yes, the show will set you up for dashed hopes and dreams if that’s all you base your expectations off of, the truth is there are still things about SATC that ring true for real-life NYC gals like me. Here are 11 ways real life in NYC is actually like Sex And The City:

1. Your girls are as essential to life in NYC as air itself.Sex And The City - Real Life NYC
2. It’s not the weekend unless brunch is involved.sex-and-the-city-2-coffee-shop
