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.

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 […]

Laura,  also known as The Beltway Bargain Mom, found one my favorite brands at our Manassas, Virginia store and posted this photo to her Instagram.

Trendy Tuesday: Head Scarves

This is one of my favorite warm weather trends, dear readers. A head scarf is a beautiful thing. Coming in a wide array of colors and textures, these little additions can effortlessly elevate a plain outfit. Not to mention, could there be an easier way to quickly disguise dirty hair? I don’t think so. A […]

#TrendyTuesday: Palazzo Pants

Who remembers the upsurge of knit gauchos in the early 2000s? That was, of course, after they made their original debut in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Well, the palazzo pant is essentially just a longer version of this wide-leg style. These too were once popular back in the 1970’s. Dear readers, I have to admit […]
