One of my favorite nonprofits in Des Moines is Dress for Success. The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in the workplace and in life. Since their opening in 2011, the Dress for Success Des Moines Chapter has served over 500 women who are supporting more than 1000 children in the Des Moines Community.
I just have to share this event with you! Every year the Dress for Success - Des Moines Chapter has a pop up sale to help raise funds for their organization. At this event you can find bargains galore including jewelry starting at $1, scarves at $2, tops and bottoms at $5 and jackets at $10. The event is located at 2900 University Ave in West Des Moines, next to TJMAXX in Clocktower Square. The event is open Friday, March 4 from 5-8pm and Saturday March 5 from 12-5:30pm.
Below is a video of one of the founding partners talking about this event!
I had the opportunity to volunteer with the staff from Fusion Boutique at VIP night last night and had a great time! Below are some of the images and you can get a sneak peak at the goodies that you can find!
