Next weekend, I'm going to a blogger conference in Austin that's happening during South by Southwest. While there, I'm going to get to participate in a huge swap with some of the most stylish ladies I
have blog stalked know. This amazing company comes to events and sets up a mobile "store" and sorts everyone's donations and then there's some sort of murderous, blogger free-for-all to take home the best loot of the day.
Right. Up. My. Ally.
The only sad part, I was thinking, is that you, my awesome readers, won't get to be there for all the fashion freepiling (copyright Meredith from Yours, Mine, and Ours).
So, all these ideas have set something big in motion...
I'm starting the Electric Elmo Swap in a Box. Rolls right off the tongue, no?
I'm going to be placing like-new goodies in a box and shipping them all off to one lucky reader to peruse, choose, and re-use. I'll make a little post or video about what's going in the box, and point my loyal readers your way. Then, you replace what you took with something you own that needs a new, fashionable home. Document the changes and your new haul. You can tag your items with your URL so people know who to thank if you'd like. Off she goes to once again fulfill her fashion destiny. I'm sweating from all the fun this is going to be.
Here are the
rules guidelines of sorts:
Step 1. Leave me a comment saying why you want to receive the box next. The more your reason makes me giggle, the better your chances. Entries will be received all week. Winner will be chosen next Monday (March 14th). So you could be digging through your pot o' fashion gold by St. Patty's. There may be a sneak peek of the packing of the box tomorrow. Check back for updates.
Step 2. Follow me on either google reader OR bloglovin'. I'm no respector of blog love.
Step 3. If you're chosen, send me yo mailin' addy. Then say a lot of gangsta things and wait for your package out on your doorstep, taking breaks for only the powder room and water. NO FOOD.
My, these rules are getting out of hand. You know what, you can wait inside your house.
Step 4. You'll have a week to try stuff on, decide what you want. Then, take to your blog to find the swap box a new home.
If you don't win (and your chances good that you may this go-round because only two people read this blog and one of them is them is my one-year-old son) you'll be able to follow the box around Blogland until it can make it's way to your door!
