Haute Takes A Holiday

By:

The luxury in giving

WreathLook like Gisele. Give like Oprah.

With so many loved ones to buy for this season, our wallets are getting as tight as a corset, and it becomes easy to forget about all of those in need year round.  With The Community Collection you can get your best friend that bling blang while people like Wang do the donating.

Make an “A-Line” to this e-commerce website that features limited edition collections from fashion’s hottest names.  With each purchase, 20 percent is donated directly to a charity selected by each designer.  Launched on October 18th, designers and consumers have already helped to raise over $3,000 for some 15 causes.

One trend that flows seamlessly from season to season is giving.  The best part is shamelessly sitting in your old stone washed jeans (we understand the memories in those are priceless) while purchasing these luxe items for yourself and others.

Alexis Bittar’s White Hematite Ring is completely tres chic, especially with $51 of your purchase going to Flying Kites Global.  Has your best friend been eyeing your DVF wrap dress?  Pick her up a pair of the Finn Ocelot Print Ponyhair Pumps, and $65 will go to Girls Inc., empowering young ladies to become successful role models like you. And feel as predatorily svelte as the tiger you are saving when buying the Santi Leopard Beaded Bag.

The prices may be steep, but being a complete “friend setter” while helping others is a feeling that won’t go off the fringe.

Finally, a new hautelook on charity.
