It’s February. It’s cold. It may never stop snowing.

Who cares?

This Saturday, Washington City Paper has the perfect distraction from this never-ending winter. Come to our inaugural Fashion for a Fraction boutique sale at ideaspace, at 300 Tingey St. SE, to find deep discounts from more than a dozen local retailers. We’ll also have cupcakes from Red Velvet, coffee from Chesapeake Bay Roasting company, Release drybar doing blowouts—and people from the Pyramid Atlantic contemporary arts center making dresses out of copies of City Paper. It’s sponsored by The Yards.

VIP tickets cost $15, which includes champagne and shopping from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for your first pick of all the stuff. Tickets from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. cost $10, and tickets from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. are $5. To purchase, click here.
