New Year’s Clothing Drive

Give Back This Holiday Season

I was going through my closet last week and I didn’t realize how much I actually owned. I have so many clothes that I have either outgrew or things I forgot I purchased that still have tags attached. I didn’t have anyone to give the clothes away to and I was trying to find a holiday clothing drive to donate to, but I had no luck.

I don’t know why I didn’t think about this before, but I decided to organize my own clothing drive. I am super excited to give back to young women and I am hoping you would like to give back as well. This clothing drive will be a little bit different. My goal is to create “Fashion Bags” and give them away to young women in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area. I want them to feel like they just went on a shopping spree. Also, if you have a young woman that you would like to be a blessing to, please let me know and I will be more than happy to donate a special “Fashion Bag” to her.

I am looking for gently worn, fashionable clothing in ALL sizes. I am also accepting accessories as well. Pick up and drop off will be available until January 12, 2020. Please send me an email or DM me through my Instagram: B_Slay_S

Please share this info with your friends and family!

Happy holidays!

I rep the 219, Indiana. I'm a wardrobe stylist and owner of Vintage By. B. I love shopping for pieces that are different and that I know nobody else will have! But one thing I hate about shopping is going broke doing so. Throughout the years of me working in retail, I have picked up a lot of tips and tricks for saving LOTS of money when shopping. I also go against trends by Vintage shopping. I find pieces that I can pair together to create works of art. You can call me a penny pincher, but I'll look BOMB while pinching my pennies :)
