Life on a budget

I’m being honest with you today, dear readers, when I tell you this post was inspired by a recent article, The Fashionably Broke Bloggers on How to Score a Deal in District, I came across in the Washingtonian. The article sparked my fancy but unfortunately I was left pretty disappointed. While these gals have beautiful and unique […]

Fashionista Friday: Joanna’s Layered Goodwill Look

Oh, I really love the style of today’s Fashionista Friday feature. Joanna, the writer of Three Kids Mama Fashion Drama, tweeted out a picture of her $5.00 scores from her local Goodwill and I just had to share them. After doing a little perusal of her twitter account (@happygal1976), I was blown away by the […]

Chic athletic wear is here to stay, I guess.

I’ve got a confession to make, dear readers. When the athletic-inspired lines hit runways last year in what seemed like every single show, I was downright disappointed. At the time, I felt like the athletic focus was a cop-out. I wanted to see feminine, flowy gowns and things I’d only dream of dancing the night […]

Trendy Tuesday: Faux Fur Vests

Last week, I caught glimpse of this picture shared by Angie Goff of NBC 4. She’s one of my favorite fashionable news anchors and when I saw this, I knew it was the final straw for my crush on a recent trend in cool weather fashion. The fur vest has cropped up in the past […]

Fashionista Friday: Breyana’s Fashionable Thrift Haul

Today’s fashionista has an eye for trendy and thrifty fashion purchases. Breyana and I met in the pop-up shop at the Fashion of Goodwill Runway Show. I was neck deep in a bucket of shoes (shocking, right?) after the fashion show when I bumped into Breyana. She’s a reader and dedicated Instagram follower of the DCGF. […]

The DCGF’s Summer Getaway Essentials: Frugal Fashion

Last Monday, I brought you the best in affordable beauty essentials for summer and even though I am back home from a wonderful weekend getaway, I’m still talking about the one thing you can spend money on that can make you richer: travel. There is nothing more essential about travel fashion than comfort (and affordability!). […]

My Favorite Thing(s) (From Goodwill): J. Crew Tees

If you caught my post earlier this summer about J. Crew chino shorts you know that this brand is one of my personal favorites. J. Crew says “WE SIDE WITH STYLE OVER FASHION, think timelessness is underrated and find that clothes look best when they’re lived in.” I love this motto because it aligns perfectly with one of my favorite […]
