Style Swap Columbia

The Bad Bish post has been postponed until next week when I am done with midterms. A few nights ago I took a break from my midterms to go to the Style Swap held at Momo’s Bistro. It was the first time Columbia had seen an event like that. Basically what you do is bring gently used items and pick up some gently used items. Simple right? Of course, and everything that was left over was donated to the Women’s Shelter.

Everyone was there from Otis Taylor (whose read socks caught my eye)to Annabelle Laroque to Shanika Pichey. I also got to see the event coordinators doing their thang. Who would take on the daunting task of hosting s Style Swap you say? Well it was The Shop Tart, The Flock and Rally Girls (Debi Schadel and Tracie Broom), and Style Swap founder Jess James.

The night was full of fun, with the raffle, the local vendors, and great food.  There were tables from VanJean, Pout, Illumination MedSpa , Pink Sorbet, Kicks, Theodosia Jewelry (who I met at Charleston Fashion Week last year and will be seeing at CFW next week) and Austral Salon (who was doing this cool scoping thing to people’s thing with a computer). DJ Irv Thompson spun some groovy tunes and  Bohemian, In the Loop, Nana Bags, LaRoque, Revente, Verve and Ed Robinson Cleaners.ave away some awesome prizes. The best part was seeing all of the fashionable men and women at the event. Thanks to The Shop Tart, Flock and Rally, and Jess James for bringing a wonderful event to Columbia.
