Fashion Week! It's going on right now! It's so pretty! It's so…totally fucking ridiculous and unattainable and can really make you loathe your not-particularly-loathsome closet. You want new stuff. But you don't want to spend money.
Don't worry, we've got a workaround. It's called "free clothes," and we want you get some. And you will if you come to Jezebel's Fashion Swap Meet this Thursday night.
It's pretty simple: Clean out your closet, bring the crap you no longer want, and swap it for something new-to-you. All you need to do is trade in one wearable item, then you can rummage with reckless abandon. The more stuff you bring, the more goodies for everyone. And everyone is welcome (you too, fellas — at the very least you'll make some new friends and help save the planet from turning into dust).
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.
You're sold, right? Great! You can RSVP here (not mandatory), or just show up on Thursday with clothes in your arms and hope in your eyes.
All proceeds and leftover items will be given to Housing Works, our Nolita neighbors who are committed to fighting the AIDS and homelessness crises. You can also donate to Housing Works.
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!
