The announcement of the sale, delivered via Instagram on August 20th, sent waves of excitement through her followers. Comments flooded in, expressing eagerness and even humorous anxieties about potential wardrobe battles.


Notably, Kim's proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Downtown Women's Center, emphasizing her commitment to empowering women. 


This event isn't just a chance to own a piece of fashion history; it's an opportunity to contribute to a meaningful cause.


DJ Andie will provide the tunes, There Will Be Coffee will fuel the crowd with coffee, and Sneaky Vegan Bakery will provide delectable pastries. 



With Venmo as the sole payment method, attendees can focus on exploring the collection.


For fashion aficionados, Kim Gordon's closet sale is a dream come true. From abstract masterpieces to iconic stage outfits, attendees can expect a diverse array of styles. 


As someone who has collaborated with high-end brands, there's a chance that some of her designer acquisitions will also make an appearance.

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”.
