Pre-Holiday Workshop & Swap Party
This weekend was such an amazing time! Some of you were able to come to my Summer Style Workshop back in June - and this time, we were able to do a similar program for a private party! A small group of friends came together for a fun image workshop and to "shop for free" by trading clothes and accessories with one another. It was a smart and vibrant group!
One of my favorite things about these workshops is how the group setting creates intelligent conversations about image, opportunities for real-time feedback from trusted sources, and a sounding board for new ideas. It makes me crazily happy to be a part of an event where women can freely compliment one another on colors and styles that they may not have considered before.
I also love being there for the group to talk out issues like whether or not a new piece will mix well into their existing wardrobes, and how to get a better fit.
At this party, we even had an impromptu bra fitting where a partier got measured on the spot and even got to try on a different size of bra!
If you have never attended a swap party before, the ones I organize go like this:
- Mixing and mingling beforehand
- A Style Workshop to help get partiers clear on their "shopping" goals for the upcoming season.
- A boutique-style shopping structure - I prefer the "fitting room experience" to timers and taking turns.
- Pinning, fit, and alterations advice.
