Green Your Wardrobe at the Best Dressed Sale Set for Sept. 30 - 08/26/2010
Green Your Wardrobe at the Best Dressed Sale Set for Sept. 30
Some Baltimore traditions just keep getting bigger and better. That's certainly the case with this year's Johns Hopkins Best Dressed Sale and Boutique 2010, now in its 43rd year. Exclusive designer dresses and shoes, chic contemporary fashions, classic accessories and enduring vintage clothing will be on the racks, waiting for a favored place in the closets of bargain-conscious – and eco-friendly – shoppers.
As usual, the sale will feature racks of gently used and some new designer clothing, vintage apparel, furs, shoes and wedding gowns. There will be a large selection of men’s suits, coats, jackets, formal wear and ties galore.
“Not only can you be green by buying recycled and vintage clothing, you can save some green in your wallet,” says Pam Hindsley, co-chair of this year’s event. “Buying second-hand clothing can be fashionable at the same time.”
The sale begins with the Preview Party on Thursday, Sept. 30 from 4 - 8 p.m. (pre-sale shopping, light refreshments, $45 in advance, $55 at the door) and continues (free admission) Friday, Oct. 1, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 2, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 3, 11 - 3 p.m.(most items half price).
Thousands of shoppers turn out each year for this free fund-raising event, which is sponsored by The Women’s Board of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. All proceeds from this year’s event, which in recent years raised $150,000, will support patient care at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
