Event: Swap in the City


On Sunday I went to Cologne to attend the "Swap in the City" event. It is a famous German clothes swap party where you take up to 8 garments and get just as many second hand pieces in return. When we arrived there we first got coupons for a free cocktail, donut and goodie bag. After handing over our old clothes we could choose between several counters and bars where people were making our hair, makeup, nails and so on. One of my friends also got a hair colour advice and they took pictures of us. After some waiting time the "swap boutique" opened and we could pick among the clothes and accessories the other people had handed over to the team. It was kind of a little bloodbath as we all know how cruel women can be when it comes to free clothes! Even if not everybody would find some new clothes they liked, it was a huge fun nevertheless.










 Clothes and accessories I chose and goodies we got for free:


New shoes from Mirapodo (they were also having a limited number of new shoes but you had to be really quick to get a pair of them and I managed - woo!)


Steve Madden heels



Karl Lagerfeld skirt


bag (my favourite pick!)


BCBG Max Azria cardigan


Goodie bag with coupons, Gliss Kur shampoo, Rituals shower gel, 3Wetter taft hairspray, Weleda day and night face creams, Mary Kay lipstick and Alessandro nail file




The event was really great and I can only recommend to attend such a party at least once in your lives. Or you simply make a swapping party with your friends, which I'll be doing in the future as well! What do you think about my picks and about the event in general? Have you been to a similar party and did you like it?
