Inspiration: Fourth of July Style

“I don’t think you need to drop a ton of money to feel stylish or put-together and that’s always been my mindset.”  I couldn’t agree more with Brittany, the woman behind the popular blog and Instagram, Thrifts and Threads.  She has a great mix of classic and on trend pieces and loves to mix and […]

Guest Blogger: The Best Brands for Curvy Petites

Being a petite lady with curves is at times a unique challenge, when it comes to fashion. Most petite clothes are geared toward all-over petites, but with my hips and chest I’ll never be considered waif-like. The most direct solution – tailor, tailor, tailor – is useful, but expensive. The best way I’ve found to […]

Love it or Leave it: 90’s Overall Revival

Two years ago, dear readers, I threw a 90’s party. We watched old music videos from Nirvana, Live, and The Presidents of the USA, we ate Nerds and Laffy Taffy, and we dressed up in some epic 90’s clothes. I got my inspiration from the queen of 90’s teen fashion, Angela Chase, aka Claire Danes. […]

Fashionista Friday: Anthropolgie dress worn by T. Swift

Dear readers, you know the best way to get my attention is to use the #mygoodwillfind hashtag.  I love clicking on it each day and seeing the awesome finds you’ve picked up at Goodwill.  Even better than seeing your purchases, is getting to connect with fellow Goodwill fashionistas.  I love seeing the variety of people […]

I’m not a big Kardashian/Jenner fan, but I can’t pretend they don’t have style.  They’ve become household names and have revolutionized our ideas about beauty.  I mean, Kylie Jenner lips anyone? Topshop teamed up with Kylie and Kendall to create a signature collection and everyone’s been excited to see it.  Combine that with two of […]

Evolving Your Style

When I was in college, dear readers, I chopped off my shoulder length hair into a short, asymmetrical bob. Previously, my ears had been covered up by my hair, but now they were on display for the world, so I decided I needed to stick to small earrings. Big hoops and dangling earrings were too […]

Hazel Summer Dress

Looking through the dress section of my closet is like taking a walk down memory lane.  Because during the summer, dear readers, there’s pretty much only one thing I want to wear, and that’s a sundress. There’s the fitted green and white H&M halter dress I wore every chance I got in the summer of 2008, […]
