[Click Above To Enlarge]

You heard it right! We’re offering all of you an opportunity to thrift shop with one of the best! Our very own Debra Rapoport is offering her genius to one lucky winner in New York City…

Our dream is to one day fly anyone to New York from San Francisco to Timbuktu, but for now our contest is offering Debra’s expertise (worth a million, as far as we are concerned) and a modest sum of cash to spend at Debra’s favorite thrift shop Housingworks.

We named this offer our “Thrifted & Gifted” Contest after Debra’s mantra to only wear items that are are acquired as such. She believes that the more you play with clothes and the more you dress up, the better you will feel… no matter what age.
The idea that clothing should be FUN and not precious is something we can all get behind!

Debra can’t wait to receive all your submissions… she’s the one and only judge of this contest, so she’ll be picking the winner!
