This is fun: in an effort to raise money for her women's-interest nonprofit The Tory Burch Foundation, the clothing and accessories juggernaut is pimping herself out in a Charity Buzz auction that runs through Dec. 7. What's included in the lot is an interior design consultation with Burch and her go-to architect/interior designer (and AD100 inductee) Daniel Romualdez—the guy behind Burch's own residence and all of her stores—who will "help the winning bidder decorate a room using the Tory Burch Madison Avenue boutique as inspiration." (Quick context: the shiny new NYC flagship opened in September and was designed to resemble a 19th-century townhouse, with each floor boasting a different bright color and lots of gold accents throughout.) The package has an estimated value of $10,000; $1,100 leads the two bids at publication time.
