Hello!
This is the night version of this day outfit. To go from day to night, I took off the striped tee and added a jacket, belt, and heels. I am so glad I picked up this jacket on a last minute shopping trip before NYFW. It was on sale and I just can't seem to take it off. I just feel so much more sophisticated and put together with it on. My Madewell bow pin made a full circle in coming back to NYC. I bought it last NYFW and never got to wear it until now since it always looked a bit droopy on cardigans; but on a jacket, it's the sweetest touch.

The ModSwap was hosted by ModCloth and The Swapaholics at the Black Door. At this event, we were asked to bring in two gently used items to swap with fellow bloggers. As soon as we arrived, we took our items, tagged them, and put them on a rack where we could all look through and pick out two items through out the night. ModCloth was also super generous and allowed us to pick out one new item from their store on a separate rack. I was like a kid in a candy store with free pickings at clothes! It was so wonderful reuniting with Emily and Tieka that night too. It's crazy how much we've grown since our first fashion week in February 2010! I'm glad I stayed towards the end of the event because by then, the ModCloth items were moved to the same rack as the swap items and I was able to walk away with three new ModCloth items. Before then, I hadn't picked up any swap items, mainly because most of the sizes were smalls and I am not a small...! So two items I never wore for three brand new items ain't a bad trade huh? I love swaps! I will need to look for more here in California.

After the event, Jen, Jenny, and I ate a late-night dinner at Hill Country Chicken, which had the best fried chicken I've had in a long time. I don't know how but we're now 2 for 2 in stumbling into delicious hole in the wall restaurants. My stomach, brain, and heart never leave hungry after hanging out with these girls. I love and miss them both so much.

I can't wait to show you the items I picked up from the swap!

Until next post,
Jasmine
