Hot Designer Duds for Cool Charity Prices

By ManhattanMataHari

Sometimes shopping opens the door to lots of spending money guilt but that all seems to go to the wayside when you know you’re shopping for a good cause. The POSH Pop Up Shop charity sale is a great example of guilt free designer shopping. The sale is filled with wonderful designer merchandise and all the money raised benefits the Jewish Community Project Downtown. We just couldn’t resist.

Both new and used designer items ranges from 50% to 95% off retail prices. Some items are still pricey but sale organizers have already started to take additional markdowns. Highlights include a number of brand new heels still in their boxes. We spied Alexander Wang Tasha boots for $437.50, black leather lace-up Givenchy booties for $562.50, Chanel black suede slingback pumps for $100 and Chanel linen wedges with a cream camellia flower for $225. In addition, there is an assortment of gently loved to designer shoes. Fans of Manolos will be pleasantly surprised to find a great selection in the $150 and under price range.There was even a pair of Manolo “Timberland” style boots for just $20. We also spotted gently used Christian Louboutin wedges, Lanvin flats and Hermes slides for all under $200.

The sale's notable accessories were a Chanel pearl belt (or necklace) for $450, a metallic brown Fendi Spy bag for $550, a small green Goyard tote for $500 and a new Alaia black patent corset belt still in its box for $500. A Christian Louboutin raffia clutch was $100, a well worn Marc Jacobs black quilted purse is $500 and a vintage Hermes classic belt kit in gold was priced at $525.

There were some great ready to wear towards the left of the shop. A cream silk Balenciaga dress is just $265, while a red chiffon Valentino number is $450. There was one lone Herve Leger bandage dress currently marked at $495 and a brand new (with the $3050 retail tag still attached) Dolce & Gabbana jewel wasted black evening dress is $1000. There are lots of Marni, assorted Stella McCartney, Prada and Miu Miu clothing in addtion to good amount of contemporary brands. T

Overall the new designer stock is dwindling fast but further markdowns are on the horizon. We suggest browsing the sale Thursday afternoon or Friday. After all, who doesn’t love shopping for a good cause and getting a great deal?

Chanel may be known for its timeless designs, but with the introduction of the Chanel 2.55 Chanel brings us a line that is both seductive and a slight change of pace. Unmistakably different, Chanel classic strays from the quilted flapChanel Evening Bags we have come to expect from the brand.
