* Shopping makes you happy.
* Studies show that people who are happier are also healthier.
* Going to our shopping event, Philly Mag Shops, will therefore make you healthier.
With that very obvious health tie-in over with, let’s delve into the details, shall we? On Sunday, October 6th, from 12 to 4 p.m., 30 of our region’s best boutiques and designers are setting up shop at the Crane Arts Building in Northern Liberties for a one-day-only warehouse-style pop-up shop. We’ve basically assembled our dream mall, only instead of stores like American Eagle and Claire’s, you’ll find high-end boutiques including Knit Wit, Third Street Habit, Nicole Miller, Pileggi, Arcadia and Eaves (and many, many more) all selling fall apparel—from top brands like Rag & Bone, Isabel Marant, J Brand, Ace & Jig, 7 For All Mankind and Cameo—at 40 percent off. (Yeah, we’re kind of freaking out, too.)
As for accessories? We’ve got a shoe lounge (everything is 35 percent off), and a jewelry lounge, where you’ll score 25 percent off coveted baubles from shops including TownHome, Open House, Verde and fab Philly-based line Concrete Polish. I’ve also found some of Philly’s top local designers and they’ll be be selling their insanely cool pieces, in case you want to wear stuff no one else has. (And really, who doesn’t?) Oh, and did I mention the beauty bars? We’ve got those, too: nail art, a braid bar, and a smoky eye station. And naturally, the cocktails and snacks to tie it all together.
Get your tickets now; they’re only $25 each. (Tip: Buy three and get one half-off.) Then get ready to shop our favorite spots (really, we hand-picked each one). Suddenly, this whole end of summer thing isn’t looking so bad. See you October 6th!
