Guest Blogger: $25 Goodwill Accessory Hunt

I had the pleasure of visiting Goodwill last week, and I hit the baubles jackpot!  Prior to entering the store, I gave myself a budget of $25 {which I could not exceed} and scribbled an informal “wish list” of things I wanted to find.  I’m always on the prowl for vintage inspired clutch bags, sunglasses and decorative scarves.

As you know, accessories are a girl’s best friend and will spruce up an outfit effortlessly.  The quality of my finds are investment piece worthy and several are marked, which is a bonus.  I live for fabulous finds, and if I had to sum up my accessory haul in two words, it would be “Timeless Sophisticate.”

On August 16, 2014, I am partnering with Goodwill of Greater Washington to host DC’s first-ever Goodwill Summer Shopping Bus Tour!  We are so excited to visit five of their retail stores located in the Northern Virginia area.  Our guests will be presented with similar challenges that hopefully will promote a pinch of frugal fashion competition.

Check out my newly acquired finds that were purchased for less than $25.  I’m a firm believer that you do not have to break the bank to look amazing.  Remember, style is born out of simple resourcefulness and creativity.
