Real Housewives of New York donations: How you can dress like your fave RHONY star


Real Housewives of New York City (RHONY) stars are donating their clothes to charity, and fans can benefit by buying their favorite reality TV styles.

Love the Real Housewives of New York City ladies’ fabulous fashions? We do, and we got jazzed to learn about a chance to benefit charities while buying original RHONY styles! Read on to find out how you can participate in this win-win-win (win for the Housewives cleaning out their closets, win for you, and win for good causes).

Which RHONY stars are involved?

Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley, and Ramona Singer are the RHONY ladies participating in the charity event. The trio is partnering with a secondhand attire rescale website, ThredUp. From gorgeous gowns to party pretties, these real housewives are getting real about giving to others.

The reality TV style sale will offer new items each day. Carole, Dorinda, and Ramona will donate all of the money from the sale to charities.

Carole Radziwill

Carole is known for her sleek style. Her long, lean figure looks fabulous in everything from jumpsuits to minis, and she decided to sell both.

Radziwill parted with a teeny tiny mini (Étoile Isabel Marant, $148.99) as well as a jazzy jumpsuit (Misha Collection, $91.99). How to stay cool yet sexy in summer? Get a lacy lovely such as the slip dress that Carol donated (Leigh Bantivoglio, $11.99).

Talking with ThredUp, Carole called summer a “great time for a detox.” The RHONY star embraced the chance to clean out her closet and sell her clothes as the “perfect way to kick off a cleansing period.”

This Real Housewife likes to keep her home organized to establish a “sense of calm.” To Radziwill, “an organized home is an organized mind.” Her clothing items launched July 24.

Dorinda Medley

Dorinda has always been one of our favorite RHONY stars (we’ll always love our memory of Medley getting dramatic and declaring, “I decorated; I cooked; I made it nice”). However, despite all the drama for which Dorinda is known, she said she hoped that the clothes she donated will bring “other women joy and no drama.”

As for Medley, she’s had enough drama.

“I’m selling some clothes that remind me of the drama. It’s like a drama detox!” she joked.

Dorinda chose to donate the patchwork Mary Katrantzou frock ($336.99). She wore that dress for Luann de Lesseps’ and Tom D’Agostino’s final party to celebrate their marriage (which didn’t last long).

Note: Luann recently return to rehab, and her closet donations will be sold at a later time.

Medley’s donations include a palm tree shirt by Rag & Bone ($98.99) and a Johnathan Kayne gown ($225.99). Her clothing items launched July 25.

Ramona Singer

Ramona is excited about donating clothes. Singer loves to reinvent herself and “embrace change,” and she sees this as a chance to try out new styles. This RHONY star even offered tips to whoever buys the pink Mandalay dress ($170.99) she donated.

“Whoever buys this dress should definitely wear it to a party where they want all eyes on them,” recommended Ramona. “It’s a really fabulous dress and I felt like a million bucks in it.”
