Runaround Sue Vintage presents a charity event of vintage fashion and music

Polka dots recommended but not required!

Runaround Sue Vintage is hosting a charity vintage fashion show with live music at Tin Roof on the evening of Sunday, February 19, 2012. The occasion will mark the first anniversary of the online boutique as well as celebrate a great friend of mine who will win a battle she’s fighting right now against non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The event will kick off at 8 p.m., and goodie bags will be given to the first 40 hepcats and kittens through the door, so early bird activity is encouraged. The catwalk will light up at 9 p.m. sharp and the fashion show will commence soon after. Live music from the V-Tones of Charleston will keep everything swinging after the models have done their thing!

A minimum of $10 will be charged at the door, but more donations are welcome. All door sales will go to benefit the Charleston chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Expect 50s sex kittens, 60s mod, 70s grunge, retro secretaries, indie Western, and more. Expect loud vintage tunes to complement every step.

Vintage threads provided by Runaround Sue Vintage Boutique. Vintage jewels by Gypsy Lady Antiques. Goodie bag contents provided by the Charleston creative community and independent local businesses, including Social Wine Bar and Kool Kat Designz.

Have a complimentary sweet, dress in style, and go hog wild!

The Tin Roof is located at 1117 Magnolia Road, Charleston, SC 29407

The V-Tones of Charleston is a local outfit comprised of ukulele, kazoo, whistle, violin, guitar, and bass antics to produce a “vaudeville pop” kind of party. Stalk them a little more here.
