Shop for Success Event

On Saturday, September 17th I attended an exclusive shopping event benefitting Dress for Success Worldwide.

Founded in 1997, Dress for Success is a nonprofit organization that helps low-income women find jobs and provides them with professional attire, career development tools, and a network of support in over 75 cities worldwide. Women are given a suit to wear when they land their first big interview, and may return for a second suit when they receive a job offer, so they don’t have to worry about what to wear on their first day of work.

Over the course of 2 days, September 16th & 17th, the first-of-its-kind pop-up shopping experience, was hosted by Y.E.S! New York, an international not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women. During the event attendees were able to snag designer and vintage merchandise at exclusive prices, while enjoying refreshments from Perrier, and snacks from The Simply Bar and Skinny Cow ice cream.

There were 3 shoe racks filled back and front with designer footwear.
Designer bags included Betsy Johnson, Donna Karen & Dooney & Bourke.
Clothing racks filled with vintage and designer apparel.

On the day I attended, it was so late in the day, that they slashed the prices even more. Keep scrolling to check out the designer duds I got for ridiculously low prices.

In addition to enjoying the low prices, guests also received mini-makeovers from Bobbi Brown make-up artists and manicures from Ginger & Liz.

Stuff I bought

XOXO tops, $10 each.
Armani Exchange watch, $25

100% of the proceeds from the sales went towards supporting Dress for Success Worldwide’s vital employment retention programs and services.
