We might be headed toward the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, but that doesnt mean you should eschew fashion and start shopping clearance racks and Wal-Mart. Heavens, no! To save beaucoup bucks and still be totally stylish, head to todays Fall Donation Extravaganza and Art Swap at the Free Boutique, located in the Antique Mall at 9635 West Colfax Avenue.
The Free Boutique strives to provide high-end looks to everyone for nothing and operates entirely on clothing and cash donations. The space has been adorned according to a Deserted Palace theme, and from 3 to 8 p.m., you can enjoy tea, pastries and wine while listening to music from DJ Magic Pony and choosing your new fashion-forward look for fall.
Fashion and art lovers are also encouraged to bring art supplies or art pieces to swap. Not only will you go home with a few key pieces for your wardrobe, but you might even get to bless your house with a shiny new piece of art. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/thefreeboutique.
