2003, Kathryn Finney, author, television personality,
philanthropist and multimedia mogul, became an internet pioneer with
the launch of her blog, The Budget Fashionista (www.thebudgetfashionista.com).
Five years later she still leads the pack as the #1 fashion blogger,
with over a half of a million unique visitors per month. She was the
first fashion blogger to ever receive a major book deal (HOW
TO BE A BUDGET FASHIONISTA: The Ultimate Guide to Looking Fabulous
for Less- Ballantine Books, May 2006), which
instantly became an Amazon bestseller
and is a frequent guest on television shows such as the
Good Morning America
and CNN. Recently,
Real Simple Magazine listed The Budget Fashionista as one of
their favorite fashion blogs.
To commemorate her 5-year reign as queen of the fashion media
industry, Kathryn and the Simply Good Media team, along with
sponsors Payless are throwing a huge bash during New York's
acclaimed Fashion Week. Slated for Monday, September 8th from
7-9:30pm, The Housing Works Thrift Shop will close its Flagship
store early for the first time in its history for this event.
Finney will highlight and share some of her favorite brands of
apparel, accessories, beauty products, and more as her guests sip
Martinis from the open bar and sample savory
food. Guests will leave the event carrying tons of goodies in an "I
Heart Shoes" tote bag, exclusively created by Payless for The Budget
Fashionista's 5th Anniversary Event.
