In case you haven’t heard, there was a raffle for two VIP tickets to the Discarded to Divine fashion show and auction at the Give 2 Take 1 clothing swap last Saturday. Since the only thing I love more than shopping is winning (just ask the people at ebay), I headed to the Discarded to Divine preview at the de Young in anticipation of my big win. (Did I mention to go vote for my looks on Couturious.com’s scholarship contest? I want to win THAT too.)
The event had a huge turnout – and a ton more stuff than I expected. Of course, there were bits and pieces that looked a little granola, and there were some things that didn’t look like they deserved to be recycled. There were even some pieces that I recognized from clothing that I damaged out from my stores and donated during my retail career. It felt a little like when you run into that overweight ex who suddenly looks smashing.
I snapped photos of some of my favorite pieces to share — just don’t try to beat me for them at the auction.
