Love the clothes as one may, Fashion Week is not, alas, a retail opportunity for mere mortals. Reality lives far from the runways, particularly if you aren't rolling in piles of money and/or free time.
But fashion joy is possible, and it comes in the form of free stuff. And this year, everyone deserves to feel a small spark of sartorial magic.
Enter the Jezebel Fashion Swap Meet! Free drinks, free clothes!
Trade in at least one wearable item — clothes, shoes, accessories — and walk out with something new-to-you. The more you bring, the merrier the rummaging! (And the more the environment will love you for it.)
When: Tuesday, September 14 7-10 pm
Where: Gawker Media roofdeck, 210 Elizabeth Street, 4th Floor
Bonus: The first 100 to arrive get a nifty tote for carrying home your loot. RSVP here.*
*We realize that there are a very limited number of formal RSVP spots; these are for us to gauge turnout. Swing by anyhow, and if the rooftop isn't at capacity, you're in.
