Vintage YSL charity event

I admire those who go shopping at the Salvation Army or Goodwill-- those places aren't for me. I never thought resale could be chic, but then I moved to NYC and met Housing Works. It took me a while to get my mind around a luxe thrift store, and it took me even longer to figure out they sold clothes at a place called Housing Works. I'm usually a fast learner, I swear.

Here's the scoop:
Housing Works Thrift Shops recently received a generous donation of nearly 500 vintage Yves Saint Laurent pieces from a single donor. This amazing collection—including leather skirts, slinky evening gowns, pinstriped power suits, flirty blouses and elegant coats—will be unveiled in its entirety at a free and open-to-the-pubic cocktail party. All items will be available for purchase at the event.

See a sampling of what's available -- these pieces will sell for $50-200. If these everything is from a single donor, I would assume all the clothing is womens, and of a particular size range, but that's just conjecture.
