Hello and happy Wednesday, everyone!

I’m really excited for today’s post because it’s announcing a chance for me to meet vintage lovers based in New York City this SATURDAY!

I was invited by The Coveted to participate in a very special “Blogger Closet Raid” event & sale this Saturday at the Tribeca Grand Hotel from noon to 4.

The sale is exactly what you might be thinking … it’s your chance to shop the closets of some of the ‘nets biggest fashion bloggers (ahem, Keiko Lynn and Holier Than Now will be there?! blog crushes, hello!) and to also mix and mingle with a very stylish crowd in a very stylish atmosphere.

Some of you may know that I used to sell vintage full time from my showroom and at pop-up markets and trunk shows. While my showroom has closed and my vintage fashion endeavors have grown to proportions much bigger (and hopefully, with greater influence!)

I have such a soft spot in my heart for selling the vintage finds that I’ve hand curated myself. And let me know tell … there are some good things to get, ladies!

And the best part is: I’m selling everything at either $5, $10 or $15!

For more details on Saturday’s sale, RSVP to the event on Facebook here. And please check out The Coveted for more fashion news, views & inspiration! I was so honored to be invited and can’t wait to share my love of vintage fashion with everyone who attends.

Keep reading after the jump for a glimpse of what I will be selling at Saturday’s sale — and ladies, this is just the TIP of the iceberg!
