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 […]

Is it Worth Hemming?

For the longest time dear readers, one of my mottos for Goodwill shopping was: don’t buy it if it has stains and doesn’t fit quite right. I thought that if I was paying so little for a piece and possibly taking a risk, it better fit really well. If I needed to get something hemmed, I might […]
