Calling all fashionistas!

The National Council of Jewish Women, Pittsburgh Section is hosting its annual Designer Days shopping event, where thousands of pieces of merchandise and a collection of upscale labels will be available at Thriftique, the organization’s resale store in Lawrenceville.

The store is open all year long, with high quality clothing and accessories for women and men, but this sale is an annual must-attend for those who love the thrill of the hunt, perusing racks and racks of clothing, shoes and accessories in search of that one special item.

This year, it probably won’t just be about shopping. It most likely will be about coming together in the wake of the tragedy at Tree of Life Congregation on Oct. 27. It will give everyone who attends a time to talk to each other, and a time to heal.

The event begins with a ticket-entry Patron Party on Nov. 7 where Couture Carnival is the theme. It’s an evening of design and style with food, wine and music. DigiBooths will be providing a Gif Booth for the party where guests can take some fun-filled photos and share them right from the booth ( ).

The open-to-the-public sale is Nov. 8-11.

Designer Days is the National Council of Jewish Women, Pittsburgh Section’s biggest annual fundraiser and features great deals on new and gently-worn designer label clothing, shoes and accessories.

“Designer Days is a wonderful opportunity to get great fashions and amazing deals at a fraction of the price,” says Jill Loiben, Designer Days chair. Carol Kinkela, owner of Carabella in Oakmont is honorary chair. “It’s the hunting and excitement of finding clothing and accessories that you love – and knowing that your dollars are going to support community service programs that help so many women and children – that make this event so fantastic.”

National Council of Jewish Women collects designer labels and name brand clothing throughout the year to sell at this shopping extravaganza. Featured labels include Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Burberry, Vince, Theory, Tory Burch, St. John, Eileen Fisher, Lululemon and Fendi.

Patrice McKenzie, founder of Thrift Out Loud Styling, a thrift fashion blog dedicated to helping millennial women dress professionally and fashionably on a budget, helped create some looks from the inventory available for Designer Days.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
