Clothing Swap & Cocktails in Williamsburg
Do a little spring cleaning and update your style at the same time: take your gently used clothing to Ethical Writers' Coalition's Spring Swap, and pick up other fashionistas' pieces. All the unclaimed items at the end of the day will be donated to charity for women in need of interview-appropriate clothing. To make your swapping even more fun, there will be organic cocktails and goody bags.
