If you’ve been missing safely thrifting during the pandemic, Housing Works has a collection of discounted designer goods available online for its annual Fashion for Action fundraiser, founded in 2004 by André Leon Talley and the late Natasha Richardson.

Thrifting IRL can sometimes be stressful when it’s an unorganized mess that’s daunting to sift through. But the Housing Works site has everything categorized and curated from fashion insiders like designer Christian Siriano, Project Runway’s Elaine Welteroth, and costume designer Patricia Field. All proceeds benefit Housing Works, a nonprofit organization that provides lifesaving services and advocacy for those impacted by AIDS/HIV and homelessness, as well as support for LGBTQ+ youth. It also provides services to address the opioid epidemic and prevent overdose deaths.

The sale includes new designer ready-to-wear shoes, handbags, accessories, and jewelry marked 50 to 80 percent off retail prices from brands like Gucci, Saint Laurent, Manolo Blahnik, Kate Spade, Everlane, Ulla Johnson, and a lot more. Shop the entire sale here.
