You’ve been preparing your entire life for tonight. With a blue bandage dress and red spike heels, you’ll traipse down the High Line, strutting and pouting appropriately, to the MePa Theory store. No, it’s not another postbreakup shopping splurge (though you are known to dab teary eyes with fine linen), but a fund-raiser. A fashion fund-raiser. A fashion fund-raiser for Barack Obama, hosted by Anna Wintour and Scarlett Johansson. When you initially heard about tonight’s fete, you rushed to the nearest chaise lounge and had your assistant bring you a cold towel. How could the stars have possibly aligned so fortuitously? Is this not clear and incontrovertible proof of an intelligent creator? Wearing your fiercest fund-raising face, you’ll enter the store chanting the “Yes We Can” mantra under your breath. You’ll peruse the designer collections, knowing that any purchase will directly contribute to the defeat of Mitt “Stiff-neck” Romney or Newt “Bilbo Baggins” Gingrich. Never have we had such an attractive president, and you intend to keep it that way with the help your fashionably concerned consoeurs.
Launch of “Runway to Win,” Theory Store, 40 Gansevoort Street, 6 p.m. Tickets, from $250, available at www.runway2win.com/rsvp.
