Swish


What happens if you mix;

5 women

a warm sunny evening

a few bottles of wine

& various bags of clothing cleared from their wardrobes...?

Whilst Mr TH quickly hurried off muttering something about going to the cinema we settled down to some serious 'Swishing'. 


Wine was consumed & clothes were rummaged cautiously at first but then with added enthusiasm.

The 'trying on' was accompanied by gales of laughter & lots of does-my-bottom-look-big-in-this? 

One dress was compared on 3 of us before it found its real owner -how can a dress look so different on 3 people?

It was universally acknowledged that the Swishing had been a success & that a repeat event will be a necessity.

In the meantime we get to admire our clothes on each other...


Part of my haul...

Oh brilliant. One of the very best ways to be thrifty - it sounds like so much fun. That's some frock too!

I love the sound of swishing especially if you end up with a gorgeous dress like that. I swap clothes often with friends but have yet to do it in a party format. I think I should change that.

Love your dress! I have something similar planned with some friends. At the moment I am having that thing where you think your own clothes are boring. I must get over myself!

Swishing sounds great fun and a brilliant excuse for wine and clothes. Love your blog- the layout is really easy to navigate and I think your targets for 2014 are spot on! I'm just getting started in blogging, and trying to connect with like-minded bloggers.

Sounds so much fun. Me and my cousins were planning to swap clothing we thrifted. I got some nice haul from eBay americanfashionfox.com. I think we will change the plan making it more fun. :)
btw, that dress is simply gorgeous.
