You're Invited!*

Monday, February 15, 2010



There comes a time in every fashionista's life where she looks at her wardrobe and says, "When on earth did I acquire enough clothing to fill eleventythousand closets?" For me, this time is now. I have *so many* adorable vintage pieces that I just can't possibly wear/store/enjoy, and I've decided it's time to pare down.

And so: Proper Topper has been delightfully kind enough to offer their adorable Georgetown store for a one weekend only Spinach Vintage Pop-Up Shop, Sat.-Sun. Feb 27-28. There will be dresses! And coats! And purses! And jackets! And some cute little housewares and such! And they will all be priced very, very low ($20ish for dresses, $10 for bags, $30 for coats... frankly, I don't have the space to bring it home again. So I'm not kidding when I say: Everything. Must. Go!)

I'll be around all weekend to offer advice, styling tips and make sure all my cute '60s dresses go to happy, fashion-loving homes. We'll also be having champagne on Sat. from 11-3, and will also be keeping a stash of good stuff to put out just on Sunday, so you don't have to worry about missing all the best finds if you can't come before then.

Stay tuned for some item previews over the next two weeks. Hope you can make it!

*Although I certainly understand if those of you not in the D.C. area need to send your regrets.

first regret here. any consideration of posting those vintage pieces (especially dresses) online? like buy it now options on ebay? I am searching for some sweet dresses.

Oh maaaaaaaaaaan, I got really excited thinking this was all online! I wonder how prudent it would be to book a ticket to DC for the occasion. Would probably negate the other savings though, huh?

I hope I'll be able to come! Sounds awesome! I think I'll bring some friends :)!

Oh, how I wish I lived in DC....! I would SO be at this sale!

theodora said...

Sounds intriguing - what size do you wear in clothes and shoes?

MissDReid said...

WHHHAT.
I cant make it to DC! This is such a disaster.

I absolutely cannot wait! Already marked on my calendar!

Oh wow, I admire you, I'd never be able to part with any of my clothes - and I imagine yours are a lot nicer than mine even!

Next time I have a stoop sale I am totally calling it a pop-up shop. =)

Darling said...

Ditto @theodora! What size dresses and shoes do you wear? If we're close, I'll stop by!

ms. spinach said...

Yay! Thanks everyone! The bulk of the pieces are probably between sizes 4 and 8 -- but there are definitely some that go a bit bigger and a bit smaller.

I had dreams of having my own vintage shop for awhile, and many of the items are from that stock of stuff as well...

Maite said...

Perfect! Just my size!

Buttercup said...

Are you allowed to attend if neither stylish nor a size 4 - 8? I mean, maybe if you just like knowing what's in other people's closets?

Rachel said...

so can't wait!

ms. spinach said...

buttercup, you absolutely can! also: bags and accessories are one size fits all.

Spicy Candy said...
