Fashionista special report: do good with your denim

by Kara Nesvig

 The ladies at one of my favorite local boutiques, Covered, are hosting a charity denim event through tomorrow and I encourage all of you to participate–do you have any old designer jeans (defined as jeans you paid $75 or more for) that you just don’t wear anymore, but still look pretty good? If so, take them to to Covered, where they’ll be donated to the Phyllis Wheatley Domestic Violence & Empowerment Program for Women. In return, you’ll receive 25% off a new pair of jeans from Covered. My picks: Dylan George, a new denim line at Uptown, and William Rast, who just got featured on Oprah with a guest spot by its co-creator, Justin Timberlake. (Available at Dinkytown and Uptown)
