Swapnista Day Recap

Yesterday my friend Melinda & I went to one of the most unique shopping experiences ever! Pretty Girls Rock Dress & Two Stylish Kays, sponsored the twice yearly Swapnista Day at House of Adrene Boutique located in Castleberry Hills. Swapnista Day is the brain child of Keren Charles, founder of Two Stylish Kays . Now I know most of you are wondering "What the hell is Swapnista Day?" as did I, but I was very surprised to find it was more than just swapping clothes. Back in 2008 Keren, came up with the concept as a way for women to get together and network, swap fashion, get pampered and support local charities.

Runway @ House of Adrene

Basically you bring 3 gently used pieces (clothing or accessories), log them in with the hostess, grab a wristband with you number and soak up the ambiance until your group is called to enter the coveted swap room. This year, the event was hosted at House of  Adrene which is an uber trendy, upscale boutique with a runway right down the middle of the store!

Before the swap began, 15 fabulous bloggers including 2 of my faves Tami of Talking With Tami & The Undercover Socialite, Nikka of Oh! Nikka , competed for the "Coveted Clutch Award" in the Style Wars Competition. Yours truly found out about the event too late, that's why I didn't participate. But anyway the ladies hit the runway rocking 1 of the 5 most popular trends(color blocking, floral, tribal print, neon and peplum) for Spring & Summer 2012. Although all the ladies looked fab, only @flywon emerged victorious in a fab color block blazer and strappy wedge sandals!

After the competition, the Swap Room finally opened. Now, there was not a lot of curvy girl clothing to choose from, but I was able to snag a couple of items for some of my of my skinny girlfriends! All in all I had a great time and met lots of new people!  Swapnista Day gets the Parker Simmons Stamp of Approval! I will for sure be at the one in the fall and will keep you posted!
