Christine is not only my coworker but more importantly, she is undeniably one of the most fashion forward women I have ever worked alongside. A native to Long Island, New York, Christine has brought her big apple style straight down to the DMV; she has a keen eye for accessorizing, is constantly on top of the latest trends and flawlessly executes her fashion risks. When this gal moved to the Alexandria area just over a year ago to join my work family, little did I know we were getting something far greater than a hard-working New Yorker.
Once I started to share my love of DC Goodwill stores with her, we became instant thrift buddies. She makes a great partner when scavenging through Goodwill; we’ve got extremely similar taste and have even been known to buy the same things when we aren’t shopping together. Jokingly, we call each other kindred spirits (but really, it isn’t a joke at all!).
She came to work sporting this sleek wrap dress last week and I couldn’t help but notice how amazing it looks on her. We are both big fans of Loft and this was great score considering she got it for $8.98. Similar dresses retail for $50-$70. I love the versatility of this piece; she wears it with a sweater and camisole to work but it could easily be worn in a more casual atmosphere by simply shedding the sweater. She pairs it with a printed shoe to give the whole look a punch of personality.
A wrap dress will serve you well both casually and professionally. Not to mention, it is one my favorite figure-flattering styles; stay tuned for more about this classic style because I’ve got some tips coming your way on nailing it.
Christine, you have most certainly earned your title as a Goodwill Fashionista! Keep up the fabulous finds!
