I just moved into a new apartment and I desperately need inexpensive and funky décor FAST! There’s no way I can live in a place that doesn’t match my wardrobe (just […]

Guest Blogger: Arm Swag

I take my jewelry cues from Mr. T. and clothing isn’t the only thing I’ll be layering this season. You see, I have a mild obsession with what I call “arm swag.” As the name implies, it’s a party on your arm. Sparked by my growing collection of bracelets, I noticed that I loved them […]

Fashionista Friday: Carlis’s Tweed Jacket

Carlis, Fashionista Friday veteran, wows us again this week. Not only is she rocking Goodwill on the streets of DC—she’s also doing it in a blazer she got from Goodwill last year. Revisiting past loves? Sounds like a successful Goodwill purchase to me. She wrote on the Spicy Candy DC blog, “Cleaning out my closet […]

Fashionista Friday: Jessica’s Vintage Wedding Plates

Planning a wedding isn’t easy. Doing so when you’ve just dealt with the government shutdown? Even harder. So this week, I’m admiring Jessica’s creativity in the face of budget adversity. On her blog Adventures of the Repatriate, Jessica recently shared beautiful images of a brunch celebration she hosted at her home. She explained that she […]

Best of Guest Blogger: Five Things to Buy Vintage

I have been thrifting and collecting vintage clothing for close to a decade, even longer if you count the days as a kid, when my father would take me to flea markets and thrift shops to find weekly bargains and dusty old furniture that my mother despised. As you can imagine, throughout that time I […]

To fox, or not to fox?

Foxy lady by dcgf featuring a bow ring   A few weeks ago, a reader asked Belle of Capitol Hill Style for her opinion of fox sweaters. To which I whispered to myself, “Fox sweaters? Is this something we’re really doing?” Beyond the two examples that Belle pointed out, I started to notice foxes everywhere […]

Required Reading: Wardrobe Oxygen

Alison Gary is no stranger to this blog. (Last winter, she shared her favorite thifted finds in a guest-blog post!) If you haven’t bookmarked her long-running fashion blog, Wardrobe Oxygen, you’re way overdue. It’s one of the few blogs I find myself clicking onto on the regular, even when the topic doesn’t relate to my […]

My favorite thing (from Goodwill): Beach layers

A few of my new favorite finds from Goodwill don’t appear to be right for summer at first glance, but I beg to differ. While visiting Goodwill Keystone Area, I hit the jeans jackpot. The big bonus of shopping consistently at a few stores (or scouting for your favorite labels at Goodwill) is that once […]

Required Reading: Valet.

This week, I’m stealing one from the boys. My beau shared a link to Valet a few days ago, and I’m finding myself helpless to the pages and pages of style without the breeziness of slideshow-prone ladies’ sites. You want solid content? Valet has it. A history/infographic about New Balance sneakers made in the U.S.A. […]
