    BRISTOL, UNITED KINGDOM - FEBRUARY 20: A shopper browses clothes on display in Rag Trade Boutique, a quality designer second-hand women's clothes shop on February 20 2009 in Bristol, England. The shop offers the opportunity for women to sell their designer and vintage clothing on a 50 percent commission basis and any unsold items after seven weeks can either be collected or are sent onto charities. It opened in September and has been an instant hit with bargain-hungry shoppers, with hundreds of women sign up to become account holders. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)

    Operation Dress Code, a regional clothing drive for women veterans, kicked off Tuesday in San Diego.

    Bins are set up throughout San Diego at offices, veterans organizations and some Starbucks coffee shops to receive donations of new and gently used professional clothes for women veterans to assist them in their transition to civilian careers.

    In addition to professional clothes and shoes, accessories such as handbags and jewelry will also be accepted.

    Donation locations include the San Diego Regional Center of Commerce office on Broadway, American Legion Post 731 building on Linda Vista Road and the Veterans Museum and Memorial Center at Balboa Park.

    The bins will be collected Oct. 7 ahead of an Oct. 15 event, Dress Code Boutique Day, at which women veterans will be able to “shop” the donations.
