Weekend Fix!!!

Hey Dudes and Divas,

Thank you for you patience with me. I have been swamped between school, work,and my internship so much has been going on. I promise to try to update more.

Since it is officially Spring, I'm going to share some Dope spots to donate clothes and to get clothes in NY. Spring Cleaning has officially begun.

Vintage is in right now. So, I want to be sure that you have the hottest items this Spring!!!

To update your wardrobe the Recessionista Way see the info and links below:

Beacon's Closet
*Personal Favorite (You can bring in your clothes and sell to the store and buy nu clothes right on the spot)

They also offer online shopping which is unheard of! FINDS up the Wazoo!!!

New York Vintage
I know someone who went here recently and got a pair of Earnest Sewn jeans for $7. Nothing else to say....

Housing Works
Is a spectacular organization that helps those living with AIDS and help Fight Homelessness. They offer job training, health care and housing many people all though out New York City. They also sell not just clothes but also furniture for extraordinarily inexpensive prices.
So not only can you update the closet but you can upgrade the living space.

*All Housing Works profits go toward Housing Works’ services for homeless and low-income people living with AIDS.

They are opening a store this weekend in Soho and the list some of the items this store will be selling and you get a free t-shirt w/purchase tomorrow.

You can become a member and shop the sale for 1 hour prior to doors opening to the public. Click link below
