WIW 7/17: Swap loot pics (to be the first of many!)

The OC SoCal swap was so fun! (Here are the pics and writeups: http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....shoe-shots and http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....o-cal-swap from MaryK).

Here is the loot I ended up with! Not pictured are the white shorts that Claire so thoughtfully sent me--I was so excited I put them on right away and forgot to take them off for the picture! Also includes a nice shopping bag and some nail polish from gracious hostess Vicki--now I finally own some nail polish so I can do my toes for sandal wearing! DD promptly asked to have her nails painted so I used the clear pink on her. Of course DS wanted some too, so I painted his toes pink as well! I ended up with six blouses, one cardigan, one skirt, one shorts, two jackets and a necklace! This should keep me busy for a while with new WIW's! Thanks ladies!

Here is the first swap item...I believe this shirt originally came from Sona to Vicki from Sona's trip to India. I remember Sona was asking if anyone wanted one (I don't remember--is it called a kurta?) and I forgot to pipe up and regretted it. Well, what do you know...I did get one after all! Vicki said it was too big on her, but since I'm bigger than Vicki it's perfect for me! I love Indian clothes with their bright colors and pattern mixing. And the shirt is even in my favorite colors right now--turquoise, cobalt and navy. And I love the floral pattern and pattern mixing sleeves and the tiny silver sequin trim. Someone said that the shirt looked very Tory Burch to them. I think the waist surrendering woven tunic over flared white jeans and nude sandals has become my go-to summer formula, so this outfit feels very "new me"! Thanks so much Sona and Vicki!

I can't wait to try another YLF swap sometime...maybe autumn in the Bay Area?

Tulle navy peacoat (it was cold, foggy and slightly rainy today so I definitely needed a jacket)
Sona/Vicki's Indian tunic (swap)
Paige Hidden Hills white jeans (OK, not the most practical jeans for a drizzly day but I don't mind!)
Clarks Woodward Willows sandals
Kate Spade turquoise jewel clutch
$5 hospital jewelry sale turquoise necklace

    i love that top! It looks great with your white jeans. It looks like you had a great time and got a great haul!

    *Happy sigh*

    Nothing follows up a swap party like seeing the pieces slip effortlessly into the wardrobes at home. This top is too perfect with your white jeans and matching turquoise bag - I feel like I can already picture the other items in outfits, too. Those looser tops are going to look great with your clams and slim skirts. :)

  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    Fantastic! You look like a breath of fresh summer air!

    Can't wait to see how you style the rest of the loot!

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    One of my go to formulas for summer too. The top looks great and fills your MOTG needs perfectly. Can't wait to see the rest of the goodies on you.

    Woot, look at that loot! I love the tunic on you. I think Manidipa said this length is called a kurti (kurtas are longer). It's so great to see the YLF love getting spread all around the world! I love the turquoise and navy print, yummy! I can't wait to see the rest of your items in action. That printed blazer looks supah-fab!

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    I'm super jealous. The selection at that swap seems to be along the lines of an upscale store. Im not surprised given the caliber of the attendees. Great finds.

  • ManidipaM replied 7 years ago

    I'm so intrigued by that orange jacket, Natalie...!

    And FAB, fab, fab styling of that kurti --- I love how your clutch echoes the geometric pattern in the sleeve! Awesome!

  • ramya replied 7 years ago

    The kurti looks fab on you... wow!!!!

  • Kiwichik replied 7 years ago

    Love thd kurta and clapping hands for the rest of the lovely loot.

  • Melissa replied 7 years ago

    Natalie, lovely outfit. You look like a chic MOTG. I think the these blues are beautiful colors for you, but I suspect you can rock a lot of colorful wares. Love the pairing of your white bootcut denims and the tunic and your nuetral sandals. Love your choice of purse bling too! Very pretty!
