Fashionista Friday: Yvette’s $6 Polka Dotted Mini Dress

Although I knew I had the coolest clothes, some of my friends didn’t quite […]

Goodwill or Anthropologie? 3 Items that Will Have You Guessing!

This past Monday, I took an evening Ziptrip to Goodwill to get my housewares groove on to add spring pizazz to my apartment. Every houseware was also discounted for DC Goodwill Customer Rewards members, which gave me an extra reason to venture out to the Rockville location after work. When I went in, I wasn’t […]

Fashionista Friday: Funky. Fresh. Creative. Fashionista.

I discovered the funky fresh  fashionista in today’s edition of Fashionista Friday on Instagram just flipping through the #MyGoodwillFind hashtag. What caught my eye instantly was her incredible eye for mixing patterns and textures in an almost artist like fashion. I’ve actually seen paintings that resemble her style sensibilities – look up Mickalene Thomas’s art […]
