New York City Fashion Week: The Rise of Goodie Bag

source

This week is fashion week in NYC and the Budget Fashionista and gang is spread out all over the city—scooping out the latest fashions for Spring/Summer ‘05. As much as I like fashion shows, there is only one reason to go . . . the goodie bags. For those of you who don’t know,a goodie bag is bunch of gifts, postcards, and other junk given to those who attend these shows in an effort to get you not to trash the designer/store. Sometimes they are good (Target) and sometimes they are bad (you know who you are), but they are always free. Today’s best goodie bag was from the store The Children’s Place. Granted all the gifts were for six-year-olds, but the Strawberry Shortcake Tooth Brush is the bomb.
