LLadies Fashion Scoop: Shopping for a Cause!

The concept of guiltless shopping is a bit unheard of. Truth-be-told, we can all justify our purchases-Jimmy Choos NEVER go on sale, I have to buy them. I will eat Ramen noodles for a week so I can get this bag, promise! It is the last one on the rack, so that must equal destiny. I havn’t bought a dress in ages (at least over a week). I deserve this for working so hard today. Any of those excuses sound remotely familiar?

How about we make it even easier for you? On Fashion’s Night Out, there are a number of shops that are putting proceeds of sales to some amazing charities. Here are a few highlights for you. So get out there and spend some of your hard-earned cash and flaunt your receipts proudly!

Must Attend Early Alert: BCBGMAXAZRIA: In partnership with The Daily at its flagship boutique on Fifth Ave. from 8-10 pm, the first 50 guests in attendance will receive a Runway Survival Kit, featuring BCBGMAXAZRIA accessories and beauty essentials.
