Well, Styleta answers all of your needs! The site takes new or gently used designer duds and sells them, with over 70% of the profits going directly to a variety of women’s charities. And the organization is all about female empowerment in other ways, with students developing chapters nationwide on campuses. While the female students are learning about business and picking the charities to work with, they’re also having a good time with clothing donation parties and even organizing dress rentals for formals. So whether you’re looking to buy something new or you have a bag filled with goodies ready to donate — or even if you want to host your own donation party! — head to styleta.org for details and really good deals on designers like Christian Louboutin, Vince, Fendi and more!
