More than two dozen of the city's most fashionable will sell pieces from their own closets at bargain prices for Boldfacers Stylemakers Pop-Up Store and DJ Party next Thursday from 7-9 p.m. We're told actress Traci Bingham of "Baywatch" fame will sell off her red carpet Jimmy Choos; Boldfacers founder Lisa Pierpont will part with three J.P. Tod's handbags bought at the Milan flagship boutique; Mix 104.1's Sue Brady will set out a black Coach clutch coveted by none other than Steven Tyler. There will be some men's pieces as well, courtesy of Dresscode Boston's Jeff Lahens and designer Ricardo Rodriguez. You can buy early-access VIP tickets through Gilt City until Friday morning; otherwise, general admission is $10 at the door. The fun happens at W Boston, 100 Stuart St., Boston.
