Clear Your Calendars: Jezebel's Fashion Swap Meet

Illustration for article titled Clear Your Calendars: Jezebel's Fashion Swap Meet

One week from today, you will have the opportunity to obtain free clothes. YES THIS IS TRUE. This is impossible, you say. Does this involve magical fashion elves?


If by elves you mean yourselves, dear readers, then you would be correct, for it's time Jezebel's second annual Fashion Swap Meet! Clean out your closet, bring the crap you no longer want, and swap it for something new-to-you. The price of admission? 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). RSVP here.

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.

You probably want the formal details, huh? Here you go.

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.

And yes, there will be beverages for you to sip. Or chug.

Want to come? Word. Now just RSVP to, and we'll see you next week.


*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!
