Oh, Fashion Week, you cruel mistress. Actually, no — you're a bitch. You're a pretty, skinny bitch, showing us all of your lovely clothes, most of which we would like to wear and none of which we can afford. You're like a bully who follows us home at the end of the day; even when the shows are over, we're left feeling a little deflated by our sartorial options.
But we're not going to take it. We're not going to let Fashion Week make us hate our closets, nor are we going to let it make us go on a crazed must-get-cuter-clothes shopping spree.
Enter the second annual Jezebel Fashion Swap Meet! Free drinks, free clothes!
Trade in at least one wearable item — clothes, shoes, outerwear, accessories — and walk out with something new-to-you. The more stuff you bring, the merrier the rummaging (and the more solid your eco-cred). Everyone is welcome, and everyone can score.
When: Thursday, September 15, 6-9 pm.
Where: Gawker Media roof deck, 210 Elizabeth Street, 4th Floor*
Free Stuff Bonus: First 100 to arrive get a snazzy Jezebel tote bag.
Feel Good Bonus: All proceeds and leftover items will be given to Housing Works, our Nolita neighbors who are committed to fighting the AIDS and homelessness crises.
Feel Even Better Opportunity: Donate to Housing Works here!
*Not in NYC? Gah. But maybe try finding one in your area — or at least recycle something on that day, and be there with us in spirit!
