It’s Xmas! Get your designer dresses for $10

Posted on 28 November 2011

Lians, cross-dressers, slut-walkers, ladies and girlfriends of douchebags listen up – this is your once-in-a-year chance to buy designer goods at knock off prices. How knock off? The cheapest item’s going for $10 and if my memory doesn’t fail me, you can buy a pair of Prada loafers at $40.

It’s the annual UNIFEM Buy to Save sale, which puts up the best of donated items for sale. Not just any donated items though, among the brands listed are:

Lanvin, Prada, Balenciaga, Gucci, Donna Karen, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Marni, Diane von Furstenberg, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Issey Miyake, Versace, Burberry, Chloe, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Thakoon, Salvatore Ferragamo, Jil Sander and the list goes on.

Which could also mean that UNIFEM supporters comprise of rich taitais who want to clear out their wardrobe to leave space for Christmas and Chinese New Year fashion.

No matter, one woman’s junk is another woman’s vintage collection.

And if the price alone isn’t enough, here’s another reason to take some time and cash off to visit the sale:

Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Beautiful People mentoring program, Andrew and Grace Home for at-risk young girls and residents of Star Shelter.

Buy a designer bag to pass some cash on to the program which will in turn save a young girl at risk.

Hand itchy? Eyes itchy? Want to check it out like now Now NOW???

We’ve got just the thing for your to tide the week over, before the sale starts on the 3rd of December.

UNIFEM has kindly supplied us with the details of 10 items to watch out for. Which basically means they’ll be wiped out within the first hour of the sale.

We’ve picked out 5 worth spending some time mulling over.

A Kenneth Cole black trench coat. Normal Price: $100~$200USD

A Marc by Marc Jacobs navy blue summer dress. Normal Price: $150~$300USD

A Gucci printed halter top. Normal Price: $700USD

An Elizabeth and James black skirt with leather details. Normal Price: $300USD

A BCBG Maxzaria black and white striped dress. Normal Price: $200~$300USD

All ‘normal prices’ were estimated from similar items on the main online retail site, or on sites selling the stuff.

Oh, and did I mention that Slutwalk will be held on the 4th of December too?

Might as well pop by the sale on the way there and march on dressed like a decent woman.
