Deliciously Caramel Durango Cowboy Boots

I’ve been obsessing about boots this fall because a girl can’t have too many of them. So far this season, I’ve purchased several pairs of booties and a pair of vintage leather and ostrich cowboy boots. I’ve now worn them multiple times and have come to realize they’re truly a fall staple. That being said, […]

Twirl in tweed

Fashionista Friday Encore: Carlis

You might remember Carlis: She’s our very first Fashionista from this past April. She’s one half of the Spicy Candy DC duo and I’m starting to think she’s the official Vintage Blazer and Jacket Queen of our fair region. She just has an eye for fantastic outerwear! Carlis picked this checked golden blazer from the […]

Local talent

This week’s Good Buy comes from a clothier just miles from some of our area Goodwill stores. This jacket (place a bid here!)—it looks like it was made for leaf-peeping, by the way—was likely custom-made for someone special. The tag reveals it was made by Khanh Pham Dressmaking in McLean, Virginia! Shades of brown, gray, […]

After all Goodwill offers bargains for your whole home. Let’s celebrate all of it! This week Morgan impressed me with her super-cheap haul of serving trays. She scooped up a violet […]

During a visit to our South Dakota Avenue store, Besa found the Ann Taylor Miracle Dress in sassy, cheery fuschia. The brand-new dress still had the tags on it, and revealed a […] Goodwill dress

Get your home ready for Halloween with Goodwill finds

Whether your not into costumes so much or maybe you’re planning a huge Halloween bash—you know that your decor can help set the scene.

Fashionista Friday: Cendy

I’m not going to say we’ve firmly planted ourselves into chilly fall weather, dear readers. But we’ve had a few days that have felt a little more November than September, don’t you think? That means one very important thing about autumn: It’s boot weather! Boot weather, boot weather! I could write a song about it. […]
