Fitted for Work is a fantastic organisation. In a world where people are so often pigeon-holed by the answer to that question -- "so, what do you do?" -- this organisation helps unemployed women to find paid employment.

In fact 75% of women get work within three months after they attend sessions there. They mentor and help with interview skills and supply the clothes for that all important job interview.

Lots of business people donate clothes to this organisation - suits and accessories which are then passed on to women going off to interviews.

But sometimes some of the donations aren't work appropriate so every month they have a special pre-loved designer clothes sale. It raises money for this fantastic organisation but also allow you to pick up some great bargains at their monthly pop-up boutiques.

Expect to find some great labels such as Scanlan & Theodore, Ralph Lauren, Nicola Waite, Basler and Lisa Ho at prices starting from $5. There are also shoes handbags and accessories including scarves and jewellery.
