(Thrift) Shop 'Til you Drop at Housing Works' Buy the Bag Sale

Step 1: Pay 25 dollars.

Step 2: Receive a giant bag, waiting to be filled

Step 3: Stuff aforementioned bag with as many pieces of gently used clothing/accessories/random tchotchkes you can get your hands on.

Seriously, there's no gimmick. That's just how it works at this Saturday's 'Buy the Bag' sale at the Housing Works warehouse in Long Island City.If you can't make it this Saturday, here's a schedule for the rest of the summer.

If a bag full of new outfits, shoes, lamps, etc. wasn't enough to get you to trek out to LIC, all proceeds from the 'Buy the Bag' sale go to Housing Works, an organization that's committed to raising awareness about homelessness and AIDS in New York City. Their numerous thrift shops and bookstore/cafe help to fund these causes by donations and sales.

Vegas is Where the MAGIC's At

It may have just been fashion week in New York, but this week the MAGIC is in Las Vegas. The Men's Apparel Guild in California, or the snappy acronym MAGIC, is one of the biggest global events in the fashion world. Celebrating its 77th anniversary this year, MAGIC has drawn 700,000 people to the Strip including designers, manufacturers, and celebrities with their own lines.

This is the first year the convention has expanded to include both the Las Vegas Convention Center as well as the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The women's wear is displayed throughout the original convention halls while the menswear and new footwear FN platforms are at Mandalay.
