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 […]

Fashionista Friday: Laura’s Limited Frock

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 […]

Lessons from a Fashionista (Part 2)

Wednesday’s post highlighted three very practical lessons that I learned during my time as the DC Goodwill Fashionista. Today, I wrap up with three more highlights that are a bit more fun, if not also functional!   Don’t DIY halfway. If you recall my no-sew DIY sheets-into-curtains that took about five minutes to slap together, […]

In three years as Your DC Goodwill Fashionista, I’ve learned a ton about fashion and life in general. I wanted to call this post “Everything I Needed to Know About Fashion I Learned from Goodwill” but that was just too long. This week, I want to highlight some of the most memorable moments of my […]

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. I’ve conquered grad school, moved three times, and opened my own shop. I’ve visited Goodwill locations in Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, and all over the Mid-Atlantic. And if I look […]
