Feeling floral

Here’s another Good Buy that reflects our sunny, happy spring mood. It’s an ivory sleeveless dress by Whimsy dotted with a landscape of blue, pink, and yellow flowers. The hand-drawn appearance of the pattern is sweet and charming—and I suspect the wearer will be much the same. Featuring a v-neck front and deep-v back, you’ll […]

An Earth Day Challenge

Earth Day brings along with it cheerful messages to reduce, reuse, and recycle. I think we’ve gotten pretty good at reusing (your DIYs totally prove that) and recycling. But what about reducing? As a kid of the 90s, the “more is more!” message was strong. The economy was pretty good and everything from toys to […]

Fashionista Friday: Deb’s Talbots find at Goodwill

I couldn’t help but compliment Deb’s layered look on Instagram earlier this week. I mean, weren’t we already thinking about layers? Deb, the voice behind DC style blog Real Girl Runway, responded, “The silk blouse is Talbots and it’s a Goodwill #thrift find!” Perfect! (That’s always my reaction, but let me be excited, okay?) I love […]

Guest Blogger: Learning to Layer

If you’ve visited the “Women’s Fashion” section of Pinterest, you’ve seen it: beautiful pictures of fashion forward ladies looking absolutely perfect in an array of textured, colorful layers. I have tried to replicate the pinned looks I’ve seen online and majority of the time, I found myself feeling like the Michelin Man: so many shirts, […]

One outfit: 12 hours of comfort

It’s hard to believe it was nearly 75 degrees earlier this week and now I’m back in sweater-ville. But let’s think about happy times and tell you about my Monday! I attended Goodwill of Greater Washington‘s annual RISE recognition ceremony, which honored the hard work of Goodwill employees. After enjoying a lovely breakfast spread at […]

This Land

When you think of Lands’ End clothing, what do you think of? I remember mail-order turtlenecks, jumpers, and holiday catalogs full of puppies on toboggans. But maybe I’m stuck in the 90s. Lands’ End has kept up with modern fashion and might surprise you with its style. For instance! Here’s a Lands’ End dress available […]

Fashionista Friday: Jen’s new nude shoes

“I love having small feet,” Jen declared on Instagram upon finding these never-worn Nine West heels at DC Goodwill. It’s easy to be jealous! Finding shoes is often one of the biggest challenges of shopping secondhand. Clothing that’s a bit too big can be tailored, but you can’t do much about the size of a […]

Guest Blogger: Caring For Your Dress Shirts

Want to maximize the lifespan of your dress shirts? Off-the-shelf shirts have a two-year life expectancy. The average packaged shirt should have a wear life of 35 to 50 washings. If you can invest in custom dress shirts, they will last 5 to 7 years with proper care.  This is because custom shirts have reinforced […]

What not to wear (to a baseball game)

They say there’s no crying in baseball, but I manage to make the same mistake at the beginning of every season. Of course, it’s partially my fault for buying tickets to games early in the season—you know, those chilly March and April days where you’d really rather be curled up inside with a book. But […]
