Spring Forward with Housing Works Thrift Shops

This past weekend I returned to my favorite Housing Works Thrift Shop in NYC (23rd St and 3rd Ave).

This store has a great selection of blazers, jackets and coats!

I fell for this lovely Tahari Trench Coat!

For the new Spring Season all of the Housing Works Thrift Shops in NYC are doing a Spring Cleaning where they clean the entire store and restock for all things Spring. Each store has a date for the Spring Forward Event.

Check out what goes into a Spring Preview at Housing Works Thrift Shops
If you can be sure to check out some of these events. Its going to be amazing. All the proceeds go toward the fight against AIDS and ending homelessness in NYC. The lines are insane so get there early. I’ll be attending a few of these events to stay tuned for my fashion STEELES!
