Inspiration: Fourth of July Style

“I don’t think you need to drop a ton of money to feel stylish or put-together and that’s always been my mindset.”  I couldn’t agree more with Brittany, the woman behind the popular blog and Instagram, Thrifts and Threads.  She has a great mix of classic and on trend pieces and loves to mix and […]

Guest Blogger: The Best Brands for Curvy Petites

Being a petite lady with curves is at times a unique challenge, when it comes to fashion. Most petite clothes are geared toward all-over petites, but with my hips and chest I’ll never be considered waif-like. The most direct solution – tailor, tailor, tailor – is useful, but expensive. The best way I’ve found to […]

Sexy Marc Fisher Platform Slingbacks

I love the basics, dear readers. Give me a white t-shirt, jeans, and a pair of sandals and I’m a happy lady.  I mean, I love patterns and prints and colors, don’t get me wrong, but naturally I’m just drawn toward neutrals and classic styles because they’re so easy to create outfits with.  Once you […]

Why I Like to Swap

You know that My Favorite Things song from the Sound of Music?  If I had to write my own version of that song, Dr. Pepper, kitty snuggles, and clothing swaps would make the list.  I love clothing swaps so much because they solve so many problems.  Think you have nothing to wear?  Have a clothing […]

Guest Blogger: Thrifted Activewear?

I’ve spent many years going to thrift stores skipping out on the swimwear and activewear sections. I always thought these items were like purchasing underwear and that even after laundering them, they were somehow “tainted”. But, after actually searching these sections in recent years, my preconceived notions were totally wrong. The main reason I started […]

Dress from T by Alexander Wang

Dear readers, today’s #MyGoodwillFind is a true find.  The one and only Carolyn found this dress on our last Goodwill bus tour at our Rockville location.  I swear Carolyn has designer radar in her petite hands.  I have never seen someone move through the racks so quickly and she always comes away with designer gems.

Love it or Leave it: 90’s Overall Revival

Two years ago, dear readers, I threw a 90’s party. We watched old music videos from Nirvana, Live, and The Presidents of the USA, we ate Nerds and Laffy Taffy, and we dressed up in some epic 90’s clothes. I got my inspiration from the queen of 90’s teen fashion, Angela Chase, aka Claire Danes. […]

Rain or Shine, I’m Looking Good

The other day I was coming home on the Metro after a drenching storm when I saw a fellow traveler with her pants rolled up.  Now, these may have been a fashion statement, but I think she was just trying to keep her pants from getting soaked in the downpour.  It wasn’t the most fashionable […]
