A bumper crop of new vintage shops have sprung up in the District in recent years, not to mention the fixie-riding Dandies and Quaintrelles.

To celebrate everything old being new again, art group The Pink Line Project is throwing a Twice Is Nice party this week at the Textile Museum, which will feature a clothing swap coordinated by Trash Cats, live music, gallery tours and food and drinks from sponsors such as Pinkberry.

And of course, since you couldn't possibly go to a vintage clothing party wearing anything other than your favorite retro wear, you can also try to snag an imaginary crown in a vintage attire contest.

Reports D.C. Celine: "DC-based band Laughing Man will be playing in the garden, and DJ Baby Alcatraz will be spinning classic 45's in the galleries."

While there, you can also check out Second Lives: The Age-Old Art of Recycling Textiles, an exhibit about the ways cultures around the world have historically repurposed worn fabrics in clothing and furnishings.

The event is Wednesday, Sept. 7, from 6-9 p.m. Tickets are $10, available online here.
