Wednesday’s post highlighted three very practical lessons that I learned during my time as the DC Goodwill Fashionista.

In three years as Your DC Goodwill Fashionista, I’ve learned a ton about fashion and life in general.

A New Face for Fashion

After three exciting years, I must bitter-sweetly announce that I will no longer be your DC Goodwill Fashionista, dear readers. We’ve been through a lot together.

Up for debate: Pantone’s Radiant Orchid

Radiant Orchid by dcgf featuring a forever 21 tank Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, isn’t news. But now that 2014 is actually here, I’m thinking about our designated shade to dote on for 12 months. What do you think? It’s quite a change from the bold emerald we enjoyed last year. While […]
