Here are my pics from my first YLF clothing swap! MaryK is the only fabber I've met so far, so I was super excited to meet all the YLF ladies! Vicki's house is so beautiful and she was a gracious hostess, it was so nice to meet her family too. When I got there and went in, much squee-ing and lots of hugging ensued. Same with when Rae and Denise (Cocolion) showed up after me too! We chatted and had a delicious lunch, and then got down to the serious business. The living room was set up with racks of clothes, just like a store! Everyone started trying on clothes and critiquing each other ("Does this look too boobalicious on me?" was a typical question). And sometimes something would look OK but not quite right on someone so she would pass it onto someone else and it would fit perfectly. We all ooohed and aaahed when a garment found its way to the new rightful owner. What a neat experience to see our closet orphans find new life and look so perfect on someone else! And all of us took home fab new clothes ourselves! We even got a new shopping bag and some nail polish thanks to Vicki. We also munched on a pretty fruit arrangement sent by Lina and loved the notes that Claire pinned to the clothes she sent (we were all bummed that they couldn't come). At the end we did the obligate bag and shoe shot--can you guess the owners?
What a wonderful get-together--I am so lucky I got to be a part of it and meet all my wonderful YLF sisters! Thanks again Vicki for being such a gracious host. Denise and I are already plotting to have a Bay Area get-together this fall!
