Here's your official reminder: Like us on Facebook before 4pm today, and you could win access to Decadestwo's private vintage auction tomorrow night.
The deal: Decadestwo's biannual pop-up shop above Soho's Kiki de Montparnasse is legendary in fashion circles for its high-quality designer consignment priced around 80% off. This year, they're also selling a selection of vintage from labels like Halston, Valentino, and Alexander McQueen, starting with an auction at the Thursday night opening party. Since bids begin at $100, there's potential for a real retail miracle here, and even if you don't walk away with the McQueen of your dreams, you'll still be able to browse the regular selection while enjoying drinks from sponsors Tierras Tequila and Voga Italia wine. All proceeds go to The Art of Elysium, a non-profit that pairs working artists and musicians with children who are suffering from major health problems.
How do you get into this tequila-fueled, charity-boosting, McQueen-sprinkled bonanza of a shopping party? Simply like Racked on Facebook and wait until 4pm, when we'll announce a secret password on our Facebook page. The first ten people to email that password to firstname.lastname@example.org win admission.
