What I Wore: Vintage Neon Floral

Fashionistas, when the sun is shining bright, my outfits transform from all-black to technicolor. There’s something about the sun that makes my color sensibilities flow at full force. To celebrate spring and the warm temperatures, I recently wore my favorite pink, blue and green vintage floral skirt I scored at the Rockville, MD Goodwill ages […]

What I Wore: Work Travel Style

From time to time I travel for my job, attending company meetings, photo shoots and everything in between. To keep transit speedy, I try to pack light to avoid checking luggage. That extra hour in line at the airport could mean I miss an important meeting! When preparing to travel, I always try to pack […]

The DCGF Goes to New York City!

Fashionistas, I went on another monthly exploratory trip and hit up one city I haven’t visited in forever: New York City! I can hardly remember the last time I was in New York. I must’ve been in high school or even younger. My memories of the city consist of only a few funky neighborhoods and […]

Things always seem to come in threes, don’t they? They certainly did for the former owner of these awesome American Apparel chiffon blouses. Someone must have truly loved this top because I found three of them all in a row and have brought them here to you today to see if you love them as […]

My new favorite model

I don’t think there are too many 60-somethings shopping at American Apparel. I could be wrong. If you know someone who fits the bill, I’d love to meet them. But I’m enthralled by one of American Apparel’s models, who is in her early 60s. She’s a knockout. Jacky O’Shaughnessy was discovered in a New York City […]
