Quick question on my way out the door: Anyone planning a clothing swap anytime soon? Because the temperature shift has brought to my attention the fact that I have almost nothing for autumn or winter that fits, but hey, I have all this great stuff in sizes 8-14 that y'all could benefit from. I don't expect to find a lot that fits me, as I am not just short but funny-shaped, but at least this would let me clear out my closet and get a better idea of just what I have and what I need.

SRSLY, though. I'm pretty good at dressing so you can't tell that my proportions are off...

I really want to rant and yell about this comment, but I'm tired. I'll let it go with "YOU ARE _NOT_ IN ANY WAY DEFECTIVE!" If your "proportions are off" that's the outcome of a lie somebody sold you, not reality.

Tired froggy is tired.

I'll let that slide (it implies that I'm not intelligent and/or that I subscribe the the narrow patriarchal standards of beauty) and note that I do actually have birth defects, so, yeah, defective, though I do tend to say that with a smile on my face.

What size are you now? I have a lot of pre-pregnancy stuff shoved into a closet that I may never wear again, and much of it is fall/winter stuff - lots of sweaters, some jeans and pants and long-sleeved shirts. I've pawned a bunch of it off on Amy, but there's a lot of wool which she can't wear. It's also mostly sizes 8 - 14, though, so if you're smaller than that now... but we are built somewhat similarly!

I would also be interested in offloading this stuff, and I would host if enough people wanted to drive up here, as I have tons of room and very little energy for driving anywhere. :p

4-6. Right now wearing size 4 jeans and a size petite-small shirt.

I would love a swap, the girls and I all have major amounts to swap. I would offer to host, but people complain we live too far out, what with the dragons in the way. It's a pity as our family room works really well for it. BTW, interested in any 14 tops you might have, I'm really short on tops at the moment and like gypsy/boho type stuff
15th-Sep-2010 04:37 pm (UTC) - Me too...
I certainly have stuff that I could give to a swap, but I would not be up to hosting.

If one forms... let me know.
15th-Sep-2010 08:49 pm (UTC) - Re: Me too...
I would also. I was thinking about hosting one but wasn't sure how long ago the last one was.
15th-Sep-2010 06:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, one of these days I need to take pics of the "HERE THERE BE DRAGONS" signs around 128...

And yeah, your living room is perfect.

I'll try to devote a day next week to pulling everything that doesn't fit out of the closet - I'll set aside any 14s I find! I have more 12s, I know that.

My friends and I have been informally trading clothing lately, as people have moved and tried to "clean house" in the process, or lost/gained weight. I just gained several very cute corsets from a friend who is moving in a couple months and trying to pare down her closet before then.
15th-Sep-2010 04:50 pm (UTC)
I wear size 10-14, but I suspect that the height difference might shoot odds of things fitting. If you are getting rid of any sort of long skirts or flowy tops/dresses though, let me know?

Also, what is your current size range? I sometimes run across things that make me think of you. I have a skirt that I keep meaning to recheck your address for, actually.. I figured that if you could not wear it, Elayna might.

Also, materials/fabric contents that are love, and that are OMG Tactile No?
15th-Sep-2010 06:55 pm (UTC)
I;m currently 4-6; Elayna is a bit smaller. Velvets and silks and leathers are love!
16th-Sep-2010 04:15 am (UTC) - Ooooh duh, you said Boston...
*facepalm* Why subjects are important! Sorry, I'm running on stressed+flaring+infection brain and have largely been missing the obvious.
15th-Sep-2010 05:54 pm (UTC)
I'm all for a swap. I don't think I have much in the way of offering, but I'm always in the market for taking (esp. in the 10-12 range)
15th-Sep-2010 07:28 pm (UTC)
I'd be interested in a swap, though I'm afraid nothing I have would fit you. I might ask my sister, though, as she's usually in the small range. I might even be able to host, actually. There's always parking on my street, and I'm 7-10 minutes away from bus stops and 15ish minutes from the T if people want to walk.
15th-Sep-2010 11:13 pm (UTC)
I am short and pearish and somewhere in the 10-14 range these days (and desperately need pants), but I also wanted to let you know there's a big swap planned at the end of the month at the Armory. :)
15th-Sep-2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
I would totally participate in a clothing swap!
15th-Sep-2010 11:58 pm (UTC)

I'd definitely be interested in joining in. I need an excuse to clean out my closet and drawers anyway. Know there's a few dresses and collared shirts I've pulled already. Mostly, I'd be looking for skirts, size 4-6. Probably not ideal for me to host, as I don't necessarily have the space for lots of people, but please do keep me updated. :)
16th-Sep-2010 11:39 am (UTC)
I've been trying to clean out my wardrobe of a lot of stuff that no longer fits (sizes 6-8, I'm now more a 10-12) and would be interested.
16th-Sep-2010 01:31 pm (UTC)
I'm a size 8 now, and have a few larger things and some smaller that I'd be much more willing to let go of if I knew they were going to a good home. I know it doesn't help for autumn, but I bought VNV Nation and Black 47 t-shirts without checking the merch base brand first (mistake!) and, as I don't do the baby-t-with-midriff-hanging-out look, they're not so wearable for me now. If I could give them to a wee person who'd like to have them, that'd be great!

Also various skirts and things that are a bit tight around the middle, and other things that slide off my hips.

I would totally drive for this.
16th-Sep-2010 01:34 pm (UTC)
Oooh yes please! Baby tees are the only tees that fit.
16th-Sep-2010 01:43 pm (UTC)
See, I KNEW I was keeping them for a reason! How do you (or Elayna) feel about My Chemical Romance? One of the multiple bits of merch I have from them (Black Parade tour T, with dates, IIRC) is also kinda-too-small.

I believe it says something about me that I now know my optimal size across multiple brands of T-shirt used for band merch.
16th-Sep-2010 01:47 pm (UTC)
I think she likes them.
16th-Sep-2010 01:49 pm (UTC)
Shirt delivery can possibly be arranged this weekend if you don't get the clothing swap sorted.
16th-Sep-2010 01:49 pm (UTC)
At Mark's?
16th-Sep-2010 01:55 pm (UTC)
Is that where you'll be? I am headed in a generally Camberville-wards direction, with several things to do, but that's easily on the way.

Shirts are now in a bag with your name on it, so I don't forget.
16th-Sep-2010 03:50 pm (UTC)
Do let me know what you're up to when - maybe we will be in the same place at the same time, and we just don't know it yet! I'll definitely be at Mark's party, though.
17th-Sep-2010 01:17 am (UTC)
Did I somehow miss the party announcement with my bankrupt pants? I know tamidon was consulting with me about Italian meringue, but I have spaced the party time (and probably can't attend, woe).
17th-Sep-2010 02:47 am (UTC)
Check your Facebook invites for time and stuff! I hope you can swing by...

I think you have my cell phone # so we can coordinate this weekend.
