Straight from our Closets: How we will Help “Dress for Success”

We are going to take a break from our regularily scheduled programming of All Things Real Estate and focus on something else that we are passionate about…..clothes (ahem, maybe a guilty pleasure) and boosting other women, lifting them and helping achieve their goals for a brighter future.  Whatever we can do help someone become a #girlboss, we are IN.

So many women have big dreams to find a job, make money to support their families, build their future. Unfortunately, many do not have the resources to begin the process with their first impression. The Job Interview is one of the occasions that can make or break someones chances of getting their foot in the door.

Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to more than 150 cities in 28 countries and has helped nearly one million women work towards self-sufficiency. Check out their website here.

Cloud City Homes is excited to announce that we will be hosting a clothing drive to contribute to this fantastic organization. We will be collecting items from friends, family, and clients in the Seattle area to donate to Dress for Success.

On Thursday, February 15th, we will host a small party at the Windermere Real Estate West Seattle Office from 6-9 PM. Here, you will be welcome to try on some of these items and keep what you like in exchange for a small donation. All remaining items as well as funds collected will be donated to Dress for Success.

Please consider collecting and donating the following items, some straight from your closet:

Plus sized (size 18 to 32)
Designer clothing
Accessories
Handbags
New items with tags
New Spanx
Umbrellas
Winter Coats

Please contact us to coordinate pickup, dropoff, or details of this event. We really hope you can make it and promise you will feel great, knowing that your gently used clothing is going to a good cause. Bonus points for having a newly cleaned out closet!
