Housing Works and Paper Magazine event

Paper Magazine has taken over! Housing Works and Paper and Papermag.com have teamed up to launch the summer edition of our “Editors’ Picks” shopping event series—the fashion-savvy editors at Paper have hand-picked Housing Works fashions for you, plus they’re styling the windows and throwing a cocktail party as only they can. Setting the shopping mood will be DJs Andrew Andrew.

Shoppers can expect bold, colorful, cutting-edge items and lots and lots of labels like (pictured left, from top): Alexander McQueen for Target grey stretch denim jacket ($20) and print leggings ($10); Emanuel Ungaro floral print dress ($100); Casadei silver mesh sling backs ($90); and Marc Jacobs silk organza yellow shell ($40).
