Louben blouse with bow. I like this blouse, but I don't love it. It was a bit too old-fashioned on me.
Jacob silk and beaded dress. This is a size 13/14 and is one of the lovely dresses I had when I was heavy.
They fit perfectly and in the dark swap venue, they seemed awesome, aside from a little dinging on the heels, but once I got them home in the bright light, I discovered that the black finish was peeling off all over the ankles (you can see it where the tip of the lace is touching), and the toes are all nicked up. Not good quality. These might be fine to wear out dancing in a dark club or with jeans overtop of them, but for me, these are no good. Into the giveaway pile they go.
And because I'd grabbed one too many tops, I had to get rid of a top from my collection. I chose this navy blue Zara top. I wear almost no navy at all, and it has a little hole in it.Buh-bye!
So, there you have it. I would give the overall experience of the Swap-O-Rama a 3 out of 5. I wish there had been more participants so that there would be more sizes and variety, and I wish that they had been a bit more strict on quality control of the donations. Despite that, as I said, I had a good time and I'm excited to try out all my new items!
