The Fashion on ‘Friends’ is Just Disappointing

Big Blue Bow Talbots Blouse

I can’t get enough of this bright blue color, dear readers. As you might’ve seen, last month I featured a cobalt blue Tahari blouse for this very series. Ultramarine or cobalt blue is a staple color in my closet because it matches most anything. You can wear it with a wide variety of shades, patterns […]

Dear readers, have you ever heard of the Chelsea boot? It wasn’t until I really got into music in middle school that I heard of this style of footwear. I was instantly intrigued. They weren’t like any other boot I’d seen before because they took on an odd shape and maybe even took cues from […]

Despite all of these costs, there’s no reason why we can’t amp up our wardrobe and refresh it with new clothes without feeling stressed about the next credit card bill.

Is it Worth Hemming?

For the longest time dear readers, one of my mottos for Goodwill shopping was: don’t buy it if it has stains and doesn’t fit quite right. I thought that if I was paying so little for a piece and possibly taking a risk, it better fit really well. If I needed to get something hemmed, I might […]

Inside a Kaleidoscope Boden Wrap Dress

Today’s #MyGoodwillFind is a dress by Boden that’s effortlessly chic. Reminiscent of the classic Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses, the print and style is very psychedelic, drawing cues from the 60’s and 70’s.
