Want a designer bag but can't justify that crazy price tag? Here's an option for you: Head to the This Old Bag: The Power of the Purse benefit this Friday, October 21, at the swank St. Regis hotel. At the event, guests will be able to bid on designer totes by Prada, YSL, Louis Vuitton, Rebecca Minkoff, Gucci, Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, and (literally) over a hundred others. You'll also be able to put in bids for bags donated by dozens of celebrities including Victoria Beckham, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber, and Brian "Fear the Beard" Wilson.
The best part: 100% of the proceeds from the silent and live auctions, plus the $125 tickets themselves, go to the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund, which provides immediate financial assistance to low-income women battling breast cancer. The charitable—and fashionable!—evening includes hors d'oeuvres and cocktails.
When: Friday, October 21, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Where: St. Regis, 125 3rd Street (at Mission Street); 415-284-4000.
Price: $125; Buy tickets here.
