Fashionista Friday: Right Round Like a Record Player

For this Fashionista Friday feature, I wanted to showcase something other than apparel; rather a fashionista that snagged something I’ve been looking for at Goodwill for months – a functioning record player! I found today’s item while perusing the #MyGoodwillFind hashtag, and among all the great fashion finds, I spotted this musical beauty in my […]

What I Wore: Statement Pants

I’m on a roll when it comes to vintage pants! Last week, I showcased a museum look featuring vintage pants scored at a monthly DC Goodwill Meetup. I hit the jackpot AGAIN at last month’s Manassas, VA Meetup when I found these flowy, 80’s wide-leg pants. Originally spotted by another fashionista, these $5 pants were […]

Guest Blogger: Say “Hello!” to Spring with Transformed Mason Jars

A bouquet of fresh flowers and a special message are a cheerful way to greet Spring as well as family, friends, and neighbors.  Combine the country charm of a mason jar, a scrap piece of wood and an inviting message and you have a friendly and unique way to welcome the change of seasons.

For this Fashionista Friday feature, I wanted to showcase a Fashionista who is an avid Goodwill shopper!  Aurora was first featured on the blog in 2015. She was amidst a 100-day challenge in which she only shopped and dressed secondhand to prove it is not only economical but fashionable. This “thrifted sister” continues to be a huge Goodwill […]

Guest Blogger: The Savvy Suit Up

Dear readers, you know I love to talk about workplace fashion. Over the years, my roles have changed in the workplace and thus, my wardrobe has followed.  In order to prep for the next big gig, some women gain confidence and motivation from putting on makeup, some from curling their hair, and some even do […]

What I Wore: Perusing the National Portrait Gallery

On the occasional weeknight, I enjoy going out after work to explore my home of DC. Luckily, Gallery Place is on the way home during my evening commute so I often hop off the metro train to explore. Last week, when DC temps hit near 80 degrees (in February?!), I made a solo trip to the […]

Guest Blogger: One Cart, Many Uses

Whenever I’m out shopping for furniture, I look for pieces versatile in both form (how it looks) and function (how it is used).  The other day I spotted this little cart at Goodwill and knew it was both.  I’ll admit it looked a little sad originally (with the stickers and cord organizers on it), but after removing […]
