In a little under a month it will be time for SWAPMaine again and I’m awfully excited! In fact, I’m so excited that I’ve already begun going through my wardrobe to figure out what I’ll contribute. Here’s a look at some of the items I’ve placed in the “give away” pile so far:
Sea foam L.L. Bean sweater set
I got this cute sweater set at a clothing swap recently and although I love the color it’s just too big on me to justify keeping it around. My favorite part of this set is the little iridescent buttons:
Tootsie Pop Tee
This shirt is from another time in my life and doesn’t at all fit the style I have now. Ah, well. Someone will either like it or think it’s ridiculous enough to wear ironically.
Embroidered snowflakes skirt
This is a simple cotton skirt with pockets and it’s one of my favorites. However, it’s another piece of clothing that’s too big for me.
Mocha flowers skirt
I bought this skirt because it reminded me of mocha chip ice cream in the springtime but I can’t overlook the fact that it’s the wrong length for me. I’m five feet tall so if a skirt makes me look about a foot shorter than I am it needs to find a new home, no matter how adorable it is.
Those are my selections so far, but I may have more as the days progress and we get closer to the swap! If you have some clothing or shoes you’re ready to swap, bring them by the Portland Flea For All building on Saturday, June 9 between 10am and 2pm and pick up your free ticket to the clothing swap the next day.
