retrofit republic trunk sale + video look book launch, january 28

I recently heard from Julia Rhee, one of the co-founders of Retrofit Republic, an online "sustainable vintage store with a social impact." It's just starting out, but a portion of the store's sales will be donated to organizations that serve a social/environmental mission for underrepresented communities. Very cool stuff. Their new 2011 spring look book just launched here.

If you're in the Bay Area, you're invited to join Retrofit Republic at their first trunk show and video look book launch party. It's happening this Friday, January 28 at Somar Bar & Lounge in Oakland. Here are some more details:
