Trading Stripes

Tuesday, February 02, 2010
Check out my new cardigan that I traded with What Would a Nerd Wear!!!! I'm so surprised she wanted to part with it because I am so into it! She wore the AE blue top that I sent her and it was fun to see how she styled it here. I'm loving this trading business! Anyone else want to trade?? ;) Check out my shop for the picks.

    i'm so glad you like it because i am in love with the blue top you sent me (would it be bad if i remixed it already tomorrow??).

  54. i've wanted a pair of grey skinnies since forever. i could never find one that flatters my body type though, esp cause grey always emphasizes the problem areas more :(

  57. Such a cute cardigan! (Haha, then again, I am a pretty big fan of cardigans.

    ReplyDelete
  58. both of you look great with your traded tops!:D
    i guess some stuff just need new eyes to love them...and that's what you did for your tops.

    ps. i wish i can trade with you..but i think it would cost more to ship here and from phils..and just make the trading (to save) pointless...tsk tsk.
