SO. MUCH. FUN.
What’s not to love when a ton of women get in the room with clothes, wine and chocolate covered pretzels? (Especially the chocolate covered pretzels!).
It’s always so amazing to be a fly on the wall at SomaSpace events and experience the magic that gets created here.
People trickled in with trash bags and woven baskets of what was not physically serving them anymore. They were bright eyed to find something new that reflects their renewed self- shedding the old one from the winter.
As the dance music echoed with the excited chatter, there was a phenomena that happened shortly after everyone became comfortable to walk around the room to begin finding clothes.
These lovely women chatted more, laughed more, and began to browse for clothes for people they barely knew! I heard giggles and chatter of true loving honesty that one item wasn’t quite dazzling on, but to “try this, it would be perfect on you”.
It was amazing to witness how hard we are on ourselves as individuals but how easily we give compassion, praise and honesty to others. Even people we hardly know.
This wasn’t just a clothing swap filled with beautiful ladies and their really great taste…
It was an evening of building each others self-worth up and finding that same confident love for ourselves as individuals.
Everyone left with a brighter smile as they said goodbye to old friends and new friends.
And they each walked out the door with a new fabulous outfit on to boot!
We have these every quarter!! So save up your duffle bag for the next one and we can’t wait to tell you how amazing you look!
The leftover clothing that is not claimed gets donated! This quarter we donated to Dress For Success, a wonderful local organization here in Portland that provides “a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life”.
See you next time!
