the day after

May 26, 2011

That was fun! I never expected so many people would bring that much dresses, skirts, blouses and trousers to swap. And not only ladies, even the guys joined in. Thank you so much everybody, it was a great birthday party! Eelke took some shots, of which I will show a selection after the jump. The full collection can be viewed at Eelke’s flickr page here.

At 7 pm the empty clothing racks started to fill up with all kinds of garments. I had made little cards before on which people could mark which size their items were, before hanging them on the racks. It worked really well:

By the end of the evening I saw a lot of happy faces, wonderful how everybody found something to their liking.

One of my friends brought this sweater. Several people tried it on, but it was the girl who took the sweater home. Good luck with it!

I had a good swap myself too: found two very festive dresses, but forgot to ask Eelke to take a picture. Anyways, it was great fun and I hope that everybody’s happy with their new-old-swapped items. And a big thank you to HOOP, for letting us use your venue!
