My Goodwill Find: Waldo’s Striped Dress

In keeping with the Halloween spirit, I’m bringing you another My Goodwill Find this week that will serve you well beyond October 31st! This wardrobe staple is on my “to-thrift” list for fall. A sleeved dress in a pattern is the perfect piece for versatile wear. Something like this Boutique XXI number will be easy […]


Trendy Tuesday: Strength in Numbers, Halloween Group Costumes on a Budget!

If you’re planning on running around the spooky streets on Halloween with your fellow ghoulish friends, I’ve got some fun and affordable costumes for you today that you can surely scrounge up from your local Goodwill.

Kick your feet up for Columbus

If you’re off today, honoring Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the Americas, don’t forget that our retail locations are open for business. Today is the day to drop off a load and take a new one home, dear readers. I’ll be thinking of you and Christopher Columbus as I trudge through my 9-5! I’m taking the […]


Saturday Spotlight: Dale City Goodwill

The DCGF’s Take: I visited the Dale City Goodwill store for the very first time last weekend on the Fall Goodwill Shopping Bus Tour, dear readers. My first thought? “WOW! This place is ginormous.” Actually, that was not a thought, in fact, it was a direct quote of yours truly! This store is packed with […]

Once again, I traveled with 37 other Style Mavens (as the fabulous Lerkia of Modage Style calls us) and they all […]

Guest Blogger: Halloween Party Decor from Goodwill

Halloween was a blast last year. It’s one of my favorite holidays. We had so much fun decorating for and throwing our Halloween party and I thought I’d share some highlights with you. I purchased candlesticks from Goodwill and painted them black. I also found dripping blood candles and I was thrilled until they dripped […]


My Goodwill Find: L.A.M.B. Leather

Today’s My Goodwill Find will serve you double-duty, dear readers. It’ll be a perfect, trendy staple for your winter wardrobe but will also serve you well as a part of your potential Halloween costume. You can’t beat that, can you? Oh wait – you can because this piece is one of Gwen Stefani’s line, too. […]

Trendy Tuesday: Halloween 2014 Costume Predictions

Game of Thrones: Although the books have been around for while, this TV series exploded on the pop culture scene this year. I’m thinking we will be seeing lots of the characters at our Halloween festivities. The characters from this show give some fantastic Halloween inspo. These will be easily recreated from second hand items found […]
