Bargain Shopping for a Cause

Today’s post is the first in a series I’m launching in partnership with the , an organization working to find forever homes for children in foster care. On April 28, the Coalition will be hosting , an annual silent auction to raise funds to support its important work. Picture this. Special Cocktails. Delicious appetizers. Big ticket giveaways. And, hundreds of new and like-new designer bags available at a fraction of their values. Old Bags is a bargain shopping party, all for a good cause.

I got a sneak peek of the bags that’ll be available at the auction. Louis Vuitton. Tory Burch. Kate Spade. All the high-end designers that we know and love. You can take a peek at some of the available bags as well by visiting the .

Today, I’m styling a Kate Spade Grove Court Lainey bag. This bag has a retail value of $428 and will be available for bidding at the Old Bags party. The bag is in a like-new condition. Its vibrant green color is perfect for spring.

    I love black and white! It is my favorite color combo… I hope you don't mind if I copy this look 🙂
