Wear New York Week

June 24, 2013

So, I'm going to stray from my usual topic of books today to write about Wear New York Week which is going on this week June 24-28.

If you live in or near New York City, there are lots of fun things to do, but even if you don't, you can still participate via social media. All you have to do is take a picture of yourself wearing something by a new york designer and tag it with #wearnewyork on twitter, instagram or facebook.

There are prizes to be had (like gift cards to Gojee and tickets to the Wear New York Fashion week.)

Basically, they are supporting New York designers and fashion--which often in turn, supports local and ethical production of clothing (for those clothes that are produced in the city's garment district as opposed to someplace overseas).

Okay, that's great, but why are you writing about this again? Well, it turns out the company that is sponsoring this event is the same one my brothers work for, so, I'm offering some sisterly support here!

Gojee is on online retailer of New York City designed goods--so even if you live far away, you can still get your hands on some pretty things.

Here are a few of my favorites:

So if you have some new york designed clothing tucked away in your closet, get it out and post some photos to instagram--maybe you'll win a gift card to Gojee and get to do some shopping! (They've got home goods, too.) 

Thanks for letting me share this--I'll be back to book posts again tomorrow! :)
