Quick update here – we’re extending the shop for Japan sale through May and June too so that we can raise more money. So if you’re in need of spring dresses, cute shoes, bags or one of a kind jewelry, now’s your chance to buy and have 100% of the proceeds go to the Japanese Red Cross.

Thanks everyone!

Original post:
Hey guys,

First of all, thank you all so much for your concern and well wishes for my family in Japan. From all of your emails, FB messages and texts, I can see that I don’t have to tell you how dire and heart-wrenching to current situation in Japan is. Last I checked, the death toll was over 8,000 people and there are still over 12,000 people missing. And while I’m sitting here in my comfy, well-heated room (it just doesn’t seem right), there are hundreds of Nihon-jin trying to keep warm on the street wearing only the clothes they escaped from their homes in. Some don’t even have socks – see how you can help with this problem here)!

Like many of you, I’ve texted the Red Cross and SavetheChildren to make donations, but it just doesn’t feel like enough. And while I can’t donate a million dollars like Ichiro or Sandra Bullock did, I thought there must be something more I can do. So I got to thinking and I realized that I may not have hundreds of dollars to donate, but I do have hundreds of dollars worth of clothes! I’ve been slowly but surely selling off my preloved clothes in an effort to pare down and to raise some extra loot to pay off my mortgage but I definitely don’t need the money as much as Japan does.

So for the months of March through June, 100% of Clossette sales (less the amount it costs me to ship the item to you) will go directly to the Japanese Red Cross, the Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support or the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund. So if you want to help people in Japan simply by shopping, here is an easy way you can do it! Browse through my selection of vintage and secondhand clothes, shoes and accessories – I’ve got everything from Vivienne Westwood + Melissa to Prada. Everything must go – even these adorable Chanel heels! So shop for Japan now – and keep checking back because I’m going to be adding more items every day.
