Megan Nielsen talks Swap DC!

Hey there swappers! My name is Megan Nielsen, and I blog over at Design Diary. Last week I was lucky enough to attend the DC Sip & Swap hosted by the Swapaholics, and I had such a blast!

I’ve never been to a swap before, so I was a little nervous about what it would be like and whether I would find anything I liked – but within a few minutes I’d already scored some super cute things! The thing I liked the most was that since I was swapping rather than shopping, I felt more free to try things I wouldn’t normally wear.  Like this top and these jeans. I’m not normally a sequins gal – or a super skinny jeans gal. Actually I’m not really into jeans much at all!

But I gave them a try – I got a bit braver. And I’m so pleased I did! I’m absolutely in love with both pieces – and I walked away feeling like I totally scored! I think that’s one of the beautiful things about swapping – it encourages you to step out of your comfort zone, and not necessarily look at the type of clothes you ordinarily would.

I’m totally sold on swapping now – here’s hoping that there’s another one near me soon!
