Merry Swishmas

This one goes out to anyone who still has any doubts about the infinite joys of clothes swapping - or swishing as it is known. Madame la Moue and I thought we would do a Christmas fashion shoot to show you a small selection of the loot we bagged at last week's Sussex Uni clothes swap. So here we are pouting and prancing like a pair of deranged pantomime dames. Merry Christmas.

Cockatrice wears: wool bell-sleeved jumper by Mango, peasant skirt with smocked waistband and appliqued ribbon by Warehouse, belt from a previous swish. I love this look because it reminds me of the outfits my mum used to wear in the late 70s/early 80s when I was little. Aw...

Madame la Moue wears: cowl-neck top by New Look, peg chinos by Tirster

Cockatrice wears: t-shirt by Mango Exclusive Edition. Poutalicious...

Madame la Moue wears: cardigan by Topshop, jeans by South, feather shoes by Urban Outfitters from a previous swish. Spoddy wears: shoes by Kurt Geiger from an earlier swish, my hairband (in mouth, naturellement. Such natural style).

Cockatrice wears: black wrap dress with purple sweet peas by Great Plains. What did we do before the wrap dress? DVF, we salute you.

Madame la Moue wears: green silk dress by La Redoute, shoes by Kurt Geiger from previous swish, as above. Will you just look at those legs?

Oo-er missus: Cockatrice wears wrap dress by Wallis (muchos gracias to Therese la Tease for this one).

Spoddy wears: my boots. For goodness sake, will someone give this kid a modelling contract?

Bear in mind that this is just a *fraction* of our swag - I didn't even get pics of some of the best bargains. Photos still to come include: a gorgeous black satin kimono mini-dress courtesy of Mrs Loske-Page and a brand new Lulu Rose cardigan which still has its label on. Also, Madame la Moue got a brand new Kushi dress, still avec label, and a pair of Clarks patent, heeled brogues, which are still in store and which she had actually tried on and dreamed of buying. For FREE!

Get out there and spread the word: SWAP, DON'T SHOP! Happy Swishmas!
