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 […]

Local DC Hip Hop Meets Goodwill Style

Along with working a full-time job in communications and being The DCGF, I also have a huge passion for music, specifically 80’s hip-hop, pop and rap. I’ve been listening to these genres since I was a kid, and have a love for all things funky til this day. I recently started a hip-hop music group […]

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 […]

What I Wore: Glitz at the Office

When the winter weather becomes warmer, I like to put together a look with a splash of bright color and glitz. Since it’s been unusually warm these days, I started to crave pieces that had glitz and shine.  As I dug through the closet,  I uncovered some of my favorite Goodwill finds that stood out against […]

What I Wore: My Favorite Styling Hack for Winter

There are many style tips and tricks I use during the winter to create funky outfits while staying warm and comfortable.      I often wear all black outfits because they’re easy to match, style, and wear multiple days in a row in a row without anyone saying a peep. However, all black can become boring […]

Sometimes I tackle life’s most stressful moments with confidence.  I like to keep an open mind and don a rockin’ outfit! A well-composed ensemble instantly improves my attitude and gives me a renewed sense of optimism.

My Last Minute Valentine’s Day Look

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! I know many of you are still wondering what to wear on that special night out with your boo, or even as an “on-the-go-and-solo” fashionista. In fact, this year I found myself in that same situation, so I strolled down to the Gaithersburg Goodwill to find the perfect outfit. In my […]
