A Mini Saturday Shopping Tour with the Ladies

Fashionistas, instead of hitting Goodwill stores by myself, I brought some lady friends along, to show them how many Goodwill stores were in the area. And let me tell you this: we had an awesome time. The day started out by meeting for coffee and breakfast treats in College Park at a shop called Vigilante, […]

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 […]

A Goodwill blazer, two ways

I picked up a blazer during my last trip to Goodwill that is somewhere between slate and navy on the color scale. The tag had been removed, so I wasn’t sure where the piece originated, but I knew a couple of things: the color was awesome, the fit was great, and the fabric felt so […]

Guest Blogger: The Dinner Jacket

To truly stand out at your festive holiday events, consider the dinner jacket. When you hear the words dinner jacket, what images come to mind?

Give thanks in style with Goodwill decor ideas

Thanksgiving snuck up on me this year by hiding out at the end of the month. Thanksgiving is in stealth mode. But it’s time to stop hiding, turkey trays. It’s time to decorate for Thanksgiving. I’m headed home to mom and dad’s for Thanksgiving this year, so I’m not doing much decorating of my own. […]

What’s worth the splurge for you?

I caved too fast this month and bought a few wedding magazines. I don’t even have a good defense lined up for you. I just wanted to get the window shopping out of my system. (And I did.) Magazines in general are full of splurges. Since they’re featuring the best and brightest products, you’re not […]
