I’ve been inspired by some great blog swaps lately and wanted to host one of my own. I initially thought nail polishes since it is such an
obsession hobby of mine, and I know a lot of you feel the same, but then I remembered that you cannot ship nail polish (I unfortunately learned the hard way). I continued to brainstorm and while shopping for sweet new accessories, it hit me!
Why don’t I pair up with the lovely Fashionable ESQ and offer a quarterly accessory swap based on a trend of our choosing? Everyone knows trends change like the tides in fashion, and one way to look the part without spending copious amounts of cash is to add those little pops to your wardrobe in the form of necklaces, headbands, lipstick, belts, etc. Think of it as a blogger not-so-secret Santa of sorts!

With that said, this quarter’s swap will be NEON!
You can purchase any accessory you wish for your blogger partner, as long as it is bright, loud & fun, and of course, matches their personal style (see below). Also, I will not set a spending limit, but stress that this does not have to be anything exorbitant. Remember, the whole point of these swaps is to stay fashionable with details that will not break the bank.
What I need to know from those interested in participating are the following things;
1. A way to contact you (email, blog link)
2. Three adjectives describing your personal style -or-
3. A link to an outfit post (doesn’t necessarily have to be your own) that you think is the best representation of your style
I will close the window to participate at the end of the week (1/22/12) and at that point, I will pair us all up!
One final “rule;”
Once you receive your item, make sure to style it on your blog and share the link to this post. That way, next time we can get an even larger pool of participants to join in on the fun!
