We’re Swapping Coasts!
For one week only, anyway. (Please, do you think we’re leaving New England? In the summer?) We’re not going crazy, just hosting our first Left Coast clothing swap — in Hollywood, no doubt, at the North Hollywood Performing Arts Center — thanks to an invitation from the our pal in penny-saving, Julia Scott of BargainBabe and BargainBabeLA. (Oh yes, it will be tres chic. Count on that.)
We’ve got a rock star DJ lined up (the one, the only Andie Cassette) and are talking to our celeb-savvy sustainable style pal (EcoStiletto editrix Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff) about hosting a free and fabulous bar. (Fingers crossed, ladies. Complimentary eco-chic cocktails and free new-to-you designer duds? Does it get any better?)
Mark your calendars for this and more serious awesomeness — bookmark the official Frugal Fe$tival blog for updates and new sponsors, added daily between now and June 19th:
