Every bit counts.”

I want to do what I can to help rebuild what was destroyed in the recent Hurricane.” Joy’s listings on Copious include a holiday-perfect sequined skirt, and a fall coat from her closet.
Saturday, December 1: DJ Mia Moretti will donate the proceeds from her shop to amfAR, an international nonprofit dedicated to HIV/AIDS research. “amfAR is an incredible organization dedicated to saving the lives of millions by funding innovative research into HIV and AIDS,” said Moretti. “I’m happy to do my small part to support their efforts, especially on December 1st, World AIDS Day.” Mia will be selling her Pencey x Mia Moretti blazer, select records from her collection, a Versace dress, and other items.
