Sweet lemon

Here’s another great Goodwill find that will brighten up your winter and help you ease into springtime. This lemon-yellow skirt has a pencil shape, but shakes things up with an overlapping, asymmetrical hemline. A floral pattern is embossed throughout. A wide waistband and just a few little tucks work to distract from any tummy insecurities. […]

Getting hitched on a budget? Don’t mind if “I do”

Weddings are expensive, and you don’t need to watch a “Say Yes to the Dress” marathon to know it. With summer wedding season upon us, it’s hard to avoid thinking about the many, many costs in celebrating blessed nuptials. But what’s a bride on a budget to do? It looks like Target is giving brides […]

Put a bird on it

I must have watched this sketch a hundred times already: It’s funny on many levels, but I think these characters – part of the brilliant IFC series Portlandia – perfectly illustrate how good trends can go bad.  I still, however, like this feathered leitmotif in home decor, and managed to find several amazing items that, […]

BEST of Guest Blogger: Kids and Thrift

Years ago, when my oldest daughter was three, she received a five dollar bill from her grandmother to take shopping. We went to a certain upscale chain retailer. Excited to have her own money to spend, my daughter found nothing that interested her in the five-dollar range. Three-year-olds don’t jump for joy over breath mints […]

Not Feeling It Again

I don’t like flats that much, generally speaking, and I only wear them when I absolutely have to, like when my feet hurt or I have to walk for 8 hours.  But other than that, I stay in 4 inch heels.  In general, I don’t like practical things.  But I digress.    If I have to wear flats, I prefer girly, feminine styles, […]

A Vested Interest

I’ve seen it everywhere: the riveted leather vest that’s part of Matthew Williamson’s capsule collection for H&M. And even though several C-list celebrities have seen fit to sport said vest, I can’t help but wishing it was in my closet, too. And even though the store is promising to roll out his summer pieces at […]

Ask The Fashionista: Apron-mania

Everyone who throws on an apron when they go home, in order to fix a home-cooked meal, please take one step forward. Not so fast, DCGF! I’ll confess: I’m not much into things domestic. But when reader Michelle sent me the following email, my interest was piqued: “Dear DCGF,I’ve been reading here and there about […]

The Ace of Lace

If the words “fashion” and “lace” together conjure images of Laura Ashley-like jumpers with doily-bedecked oversized collars, then rest assured that fashion and lace have come a long way, baby. Today’s looks are feminine without being stuffy; delicate without being, well, doily. Lace can be expensive or inexpensive and it’s an easy DIY additional to […]
