You may remember my love affair with Housing Works, mentioned here and here.
Well, here are a couple of highly mentionable updates:
The organization, whose proceeds benefit those living with HIV and AIDS, is holding a sample sale with over a million bucks worth of designer goodies in the hopes of raising $500K. There's also a swank party, Fashion For Action, which is being held at The Rubin Art Museum and hosted by Marc Jacobs.
The sale will be held at the store's Chelsea location at 143 West 17th Street from November 14 - 16th. Not a New Yorker? Don't fret. They've also updated their website to include "Buy It Now" items that your friendly neighborhood Fed Ex guy will happily dispatch.
There are tons of treasures that get updated daily but here are some of my favorites:
A Tom Ford designed Gucci dress that is perfect for the stylish, yet cash-strapped bride, a vintage Courreges bag that's equally chic with a tweed suit or jeans, and speaking of jeans, a pair of Sevens in a flattering wash and cut.
Find them, and all their BIN items at Shop Housing Works.
