Spice Up Summer with an Accessory Swap!!!

The lazy, hazy days of summer can really drag on unless we spice them up a bit!! Is anyone game? How about an over50feeling40 SUMMER ACCESSORY SWAP?

The rules are simple….just tell me here if you want to participate. I will pair you up with another blogger and you will exchange accessories (dollar value not over $25). Then we will all style a look with the accessories and post them on our sites on Tuesday, August 2!! I will make sure on that day to have everyone’s link on my site.

Review…all you have to do is let me know if you want to participate by Friday. On Saturday, I will post the pairs. Then you contact each other and arrange for the swap!! Style a look. Post it on August 2.

The last accessory swap I participated in was tons of fun. I loved getting a secret package that I did not know what was going to be inside!! Spread the word around on your Twitter and Face Book and let’s get as many to participate as possible!


  1. This is a brilliant idea but I have to go to a funeral tomorrow and so I'm not sure if I can participate this time. Please let me know when you run something similar.



  2. I'd love to participate!!!
    Do u need the photos right away of what we will be sending? and do we give em back 😉 or is it a keeper event? Also are scarves and hats included?
    Oohh, I so excited and am going to pick out something right away!

  3. I would love to do this. Since I have never done this before, I need to ask a question. Do the accessories need to be new or something that we already have?
    I went to Forever 21 today and found some really cute necklaces. I have found some really cute accessories at Fashion Bug including some that I purchased to rework into a different look.

  4. Questions answered:
    1. The only thing I am doing Saturday is telling you who your partner is! That gives you until August to exchange the goods and style a look.
    2. All you are doing on August 2 is posting your look and sending the link to me at 0ver50feeling40@gmail.com. I am only going to post the links and you will have the pictures on your sites! I will send readers to you from my site and actually we will be sending readers around to all of our sites…
    3. I think the accessories are wide open…they can be new, thrifted, used, hats, scarves, necklaces, earrings, bracelets…you get my drift! Just have fun with it!! I placed a dollar limit on it just so no one would feel pressure to go to extremes.

  5. Congratulations on your selection as an IFB Link a la Mode for this week. So not surprised, I loved all your wedding posts!
