Fashionista Friday: Sam’s J.Crew shoes

Sam's J.Crew pumps from Goodwill

I caught Sam in the exact moment she was pointing to her shoes.

As Sam, chair of the Goodwill Young Professionals Council, introduced us to the #Edited4Goodwill pop-up shop last week, I immediately took notice of her outfit. At first, I tried to capture photos of her colorful dress—it was springy and fun but still professional and chic.

Then she started talking about her shoes. “I got these shoes at Goodwill for $20,” she said, pointing at her feet as everyone ooh-ed and aah-ed. “They’re on sale at J.Crew right now. They’re full price.”

I looked them up on J.Crew. They are indeed available, and they are indeed full price. And they cost $245.

I haven’t seen a Goodwill bargain that good in a long time, maybe since I scored an Escada skirt with the now-vintage tag still attached.

The best part? The $20 that Sam spent on her killer heels is almost enough to provide an entire hour of resume-writing help for one of Goodwill’s students. If that doesn’t make you smile (besides the sheer joy of shoes), I’m not sure if anything will.

Sam, thanks for representing Goodwill in style!
