Come on in, make yourself comfy. I'm so happy you could make to the swap party link up. If you've visited my blog within the last 3 weeks or so then you already know the details; if you haven't, click here.
Gracie , Ally, Pao, and Lynn have arrived already. Scroll down and link your swap post too by clicking on the little blue froggy guy, then have a look around and see if there's anything you'd like to swap for. Leave me a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to visit everybody; you never know what you might find! Just finding out about the party? You've still got time to join! The link is open until Saturday night 9/22/12.
A few suggestions, if I may... Since we're not doing this face to face, real time (oh, how I wish!) a swap make take a couple emails back and forth so please be patient with fellow party attendees. 2) If you have any doubt as to whether an item will fit, ask for measurements. 3) If condition or authenticity of an item is important to you, ask lots of questions. 4) Please link back to styleagent909.blogspot.com so others can join the party. 5) Just because the link closes Saturday night, doesn't mean the swapping has to stop. 6)If you make a great trade(s) we'd all love to see it in a future post(s).
Oh yeah... you probably want to know about the prize. It's a sterling silver Pandora bracelet and one starter sterling silver charm/bead (you get to have the fun of filling it up and personalizing it). This bracelet accepts the sterling silver beads but not the glass beads of Pandora. Glass beads from other brands such as Troll may fit. One randomly chosen person wins. I'll announce it next post.
Now let the swapping begin...
Betu Sport skinny python pants. Size 8.
Waist 29", hips 43", total length 40". Zip front. No pockets. 97% cotton, 3% spandex.
I seriously want a pair of python pants so bad, I was going to sew an insert into the sides of these to make them larger, but decided it would wreck the look.
Wouldn't these look fabulous with some boots?
9/1/12 update: I was in Macy's yesterday and found a pair of python print jeans. I'm just over the moon about them!
a.n.a faux leather jacket. XL.
Underarm to underarm 44", Neck to bottom 22", shoulder to cuff, 25.5".
In general, I'm not a fan of faux leather. But I really liked this jacket. The photo doesn't do it justice. I has a "broken in" look. Because it's an XL there lots of room for layering thicker clothes underneath. Drawback, no pockets. I recently replaced it with a nearly identical one that does have pockets.
Levi's denim shirt. Medium.
Bust 40", Waist 35", neck to hem 29", shoulder to cuff 24".
The southwest look is going to be big this fall. This shirt is a must have. Soft, 100% cotton. It's slightly fitted and just doesn't have the looseness I'm looking for plus I have at least 3 other denim shirts.
Gap linen biased cut skirt. Size 8.
Waist 32", length 28", hips are very generous.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this at the thrift store. It's the exact same one I'm wearing here. The only difference is that this one has dark stripes where mine are light and visa versa. This could work in any season. I was going to cut this one up and use it as a pattern, but I decided one skirt like this is enough.
I really should have ironed it, but I'll leave that to the new owner.
42" bust, 25" shoulder to cuff, 22" neck to bottom. I know there's somebody out there who can really rock this like it deserves to be. I think it's sooo cute. The only problem is, it makes me look like Sasquatch. If you have a small frame there's lots of room for layering. If you have a larger frame like me, try wearing it with a light weight garment underneath.
Worthington dress. Size 14.
Bust 42", length from waist to hem 21", waist 34", hips 48" (at maximum). 100% polyester, but has a silky feel.
I really like this dress it kind of reminds me of a tortoise shell.
The problem is, it rides up my thighs a little higher than I'd like when I sit down. It has a side zipper and a matching fabric belt that is permanently attached.
Steve Madden wedges. Size 8 1/2. From heel to toe 10", 4 1/2" tall at heel.
Remember these? I wore them here. I just don't sport these much at all and I think they deserve to be shown off. They're in great shape and feel amazingly stable to walk in.
1. Big rings
2. Scarves (can't get enough of 'em)
3. Anything made of colored suede or leather
4. Small to medium cross body type purse (I have red, black, and white ones already).
6. Patterned tights
7. Chunky necklace
8. Boots! I love boots!
9. Basic black blazer (I know, I can't believe I don't have one either.)
10. Long cardigan (really long, like this one). I have a brown one and a gray one already.
shoe: Sometimes and 8 or 9, but usually 8 1/2.
dresses, pants, jeans: 12 to 14
Blouses, sweaters, jackets: 12 to 14, medium to XL.
Sizing also depends on the fabric of certain items. If you have something you think I'd like, but it's not my size or on my wish list, give me a holler anyway, maybe I can make it work!
