Scarf Swap!

I'm super excited to announce a fun new project I'm involved in along with some of my all-time favorite fashion bloggers: Jessie, Jentine and Kendi! Jessie masterminded the simple yet genius idea of a scarf swap. Silk scarves are an amazingly versatile accessory. They can be worn many ways and easily add color or pattern to your look. The icing on the cake? They're readily available at thrift stores, flea markets and antique shops and tend to be dirt cheap. I received a scarf from each of the three ladies above, which I'll showcase in outfit posts throughout this week. Now, it's time for you to get in on the scarf-swapping action!

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 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.  

Keep in mind, scarves are super easy to ship! I folded mine up small and stuck them in standard letter envelopes. This is a great way to score a cute new accessory and connect with other bloggers!

Stay tuned for my first scarf outfit post coming tomorrow!
