Event // Scarf Swap!

June 13, 2011
i’ve got a super fun blog-event to announce today!
i got together with a few of my best gal-pal bloggers
[jentine!] [katy!] [kendi!]  * 
and we created something fun and easy 
that can help you spice up your summer wardrobe…
you ready?

it’s no secret that i LOOOOVE scarves
(proof here, here, here & here)
so we made up a way to share the love with others
and meet some new friends at the same time!
see the details below & please feel free to spread the word!
here’s how it works:
    + sign-ups start today and go through sunday the 19th at noon 
    + send your full name, mailing address, email address & blog URL (if you have one)
     to jessie [at] theconcretecatwalk [dot] com  
    + participants will be connected with another blogger 
    and notified of their matches on monday, june 20th
    + everyone who joins should be able to find and send a scarf 
    to their match by the end of this month
    + every one is encouraged to post about the scarf they’ve received 
    and link back to the person who sent it
    (however, non-bloggers are MORE than welcome to participate!)
    a few guidelines:
    + the swap is open to residents of the US and Canada
    + the scarves should be of good taste, and in great condition. 
    vintage, new, second-hand… whatever you’d like to send, 
    please make sure that it is also something that you would like to receive
    (while still keeping the purchase price under $10)
    + the scarves don’t have to be real silk, 
    but please look for the silky square or rectangular shaped ones 
    (like the ones featured in our posts) vs. any type of winter scarves.
    + please ONLY sign-up if you are absolutely sure you can participate.  
    i would hate for anyone who joins us to have to go without a scarf!

    stay tuned to see the scarves 
    that kendi, jentine, katy & i
    swapped amongst ourselves 
    and are including in posts this week.
    please feel free to let me know if you have any questions,
    and let’s start swapping!

    What a fantastic idea! I love it. Sadly I can’t participate as I am in the UK- do you know of UK bloggers keen on doing something like this?

    Ps. Love your blog and style. Beautiful!

    I’m still thinking about the swap–I tend to like my scarves more funky than functional.

    Hey! Looks like there are a few of us in the UK who want to do this – if I can get a few people interested we can do our very own! Let me know if you’re keen! Great idea Jessie!

    I am curious to find out what blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m having some minor security issues with
    my latest website and I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any solutions?
