UCB On The Scene: LuLu’s.Com & The Swapaholics Clothing Swap San Francisco

Swap, til I drop? What you don’t have to tell me twice. All I needed to know was LuLu’s.Com and The Swapaholics had joined forces for her one KICK ASS evening of swapping, mingling and greeting. And I was game. I shop at LuLu’s maybe 3-4 times a month faithfully. They keep me chic with all their unique threads. One of  my favorite designers I frequent on their site is Jeffrey Campbell. They’re my one stop shop when I need to have my all Jeffrey Campbell eveyrthang swagg turnt up to the max. So, could you could picture me in my military threads ready for war when I discovered they strategically hidden 100 items from their site in the swap? Thankfully, the swap was impressingly organized and I was able to put my army fatigue romper and turban away. Which is all compliments of The Swapaholics duo Amy Chase from Punky Style and Melissa Massello from Shoestring Magazine. The two swapping powerhouses who blessed us with their good graces all the way from Boston. They organized and hosted the swap. Their staff was uber friendly, stylish, tidy and fun. I truly enjoyed these ladies. They will be helping me launch The Urban Class Boutique’s first swap later this year. And my favorite part of all was aside from the HAWT and trendy threads they let us take as much as we could carry, was the fact that whatever us swappers didn’t take home would be donated to the Goodwill. Swapping and for a good cause at that? What more could a girl ask for?

Tiffany of HomeyGrown supports all Bay Area businesses. She found my hat in the swap. She had a genuine sweet, upbeat personality. LOL.

These two chicas Jessica and LuLu had me cracking up all night. I had fun with these two.

Didn’t get her name but she ‘came up’ at the swap. That’s 1/4 a closet of clothing. She also found my boots in the swap. My calves are too big for them. Enjoy fashionista =)
