Swapping Clothes, and Sipping Cocktails on a Lovely Saturday Afternoon

This post need barely even be accompanied with text. I tried something new, and added some video to explain...

Yes... we drank from the nector of a tequila paloma cocktail.. we grazed from a lovely display of cheeses and breads, and then we gorged ourselves on one another's castoff threads; shoes, bags, scarves, belts, hats, jewelery... anything. One woman's castoff is another woman's treasure! And did I find some treasure... A jacket, belt, white fur scarf, skit, dress... I'm wearing them now!

So, come on ladies who swapped, leave a comment telling me your favorite swap piece! We all want to hear.

The Paloma Cocktail Recipe
For a refreshing, thirst quenching tequila cocktail, the Paloma is definitely at the top of the list and it's a favorite in Mexico. It's a light, fruity drink with a fizz and one of the smoothest tequila drinks out there. Almost any blanco tequila works well in combination with the grapefruit and you may also see this cocktail with grapefruit juice and a splash of soda instead of a grapefruit soda like Squirt.

2 oz blanco or reposado tequila
6 oz fresh grapefruit soda
1/2 oz lime juice
salt for rimming (optional)

Rim a collins glass with salt.
Fill the glass with ice and add the tequila and lime juice.
Top it off with grapefruit soda.

Great photos and great idea for the video- unfortunately I can't watch them on my IPhone-
I've never done a swap before- well not a clothing swap- I've done book swaps- how do you get a group of women the same size?

Dang! VIMEO is supposed to work on iPads, why not iPhones? I have to check that out on my iPhone later. Oh well.
But as for the size issues, it was a mix of tall and short ladies.. and you'd be surprised how it turned out.
I totally recommend doing it!

Great afternoon! My favorite scores - Tor's black high heel boots, long missoni type dress, your black linen jacket and another men's style suit jacket. Oh and a little sparkly scarf. And nothing like a couple Palomas in the afternoon! :)

I left with WAY more than I came with... So not only do I have a new (to me)wardrobe- including a cute sweat shirt, 3 new blouses, a gorgeous shirt from Eva and a sweater dress from Suzanne... but I also get the added bonus of feeling like I help the earth by recycling!!!

Awesome idea, and very well executed. Thanks for being a lovely hostess Tor!!!!

Can't wait for next year...
