My super sweet friend, Courtney, owner of LA Vintage Exchange, teamed up with Kristen and Kristen of VAINGLORIOUS to host a a clothing swap party this past weekend. My sister, Bec, and I went to Courtney’s beautiful home armed with 10 items to swap with a bunch of other girls in the fashion industry. And in return for our 10 items, we were able to take 10 items from the clothes, jewelry, handbags, and shoes that the other girls brought. It was a stellar way to spend an afternoon in the sun drinking eco friendly cocktails, courtesy of VeeV, and sharing our love for fashion. I also had the chance to see Courtney’s vintage stock and got the raddest jumpsuit ever! Courtney has an amazing eye for vintage and impeccable taste- check her out, along with the ladies behind VAINGLORIOUS, and myself (at 1:46) on ThreadBanger Style’s YouTube Channel.

Kristen, on the left is a red carpet reporter, and Kristen is a wardrobe stylist.

Yes, I talk A LOT with my hands. People have deemed it a Jersey thing.


The goods.


The referenced raddest jumpsuit that is now mine (thank you, Courtney, for letting me have it at the friend price)!

Bec talks with her hands too.
