Fashionista Friday: Meeting Instagram Friends in Real Life!

Fashionistas, today’s Fashionista Friday isn’t your typical feature. I’m highlighting a Goodwill goddess who I’ve interacted with on Instagram many times before but had never met in real life until our most recent Swap & Shop!

She’s a stylin’ vintage Goodwill vixen with an eye for bright colors and a fashion sense that is unparalleled.

This fashionista moved to the DC area from Connecticut some years ago and has been shopping at Goodwill stores in the region ever since. She’s not only a fashion lover, she’s also a personal stylist and bargain babe.

Check out Taneaka’s finds and inspiration on her Instagram page! I assure you, you will not be disappointed.

As you can see, when I finally met her at the Swap & Shop, her jacket was on point and her style was incredible. I CANNOT wait to shop with her in the future!

Another reason why I wanted to feature her today was to show Goodwill can truly bring people who have the same passion together. If it weren’t for Goodwill, I wouldn’t know about a third of the people I’m friends with! If it weren’t for Goodwill, I wouldn’t have met my Meetup friends, my fellow swappers, and general fashion aficionado buddies. It’s Goodwill that has given me a fabulous closet, and a family of friends.

It was great meeting you this past weekend, lady! I look forward to shopping with you at Goodwill in the future. (And fighting over vintage gems! Just kidding :))
