Ladies, if you’re in the mood to squeeze in a bit of pre-spring cleaning during your long weekend, start with your closets. If you’re anything like me, there’s a growing collection of barely worn formalwear—a veritable visual timeline of your wedding and gala-attending history collecting in some dark corner, just begging to be purged for the greater fashion good.

From February 25 to 29, Crossroads Trading Co. will team up with The Princess Project to collect gowns, cocktail dresses and accessories for high school girls in need at six Bay Area Crossroads locations. Your tax-deductible donation must have been purchased within the last six years and should be brought in already dry cleaned, on hangars and in excellent condition. For more information, go to the Crossroads Trading Co. website.
