MeetUp: Fairfax Goodwill

Dear readers, in a couple of weeks (October 25th to be exact!), I’m hosting my first Meetup as the new DCGF and I’m PUMPED!

We Shopped ‘Til We Dropped: Fall Shopping Bus Tour Recap

Holy cow, fashionistas! I am still jazzed with energy from Saturday’s shopping bus tour. It was an incredibly fun and productive day, where I had the rare opportunity to shop with over 15 Goodwill enthusiasts such as myself. Women of all ages and professions joined us on the tour, which was incredibly exciting because although […]


Hazel Summer Dress

Looking through the dress section of my closet is like taking a walk down memory lane.  Because during the summer, dear readers, there’s pretty much only one thing I want to wear, and that’s a sundress. There’s the fitted green and white H&M halter dress I wore every chance I got in the summer of 2008, […]

Remember that if your costume du jour is a character with real-life tendencies (meaning, they were not a super hero or a talking animal), you’ll probably be able to find all the components of your ensemble […]

Goodwill Halloween costumes: Leading ladies

  Last week I visited Goodwill’s local headquarters on South Dakota Avenue to see what sort of Halloween ensembles I could pick up on a budget. The staff had no idea I was coming, and the only advantage I had was that it happened to be a 25% off Tuesday for Customer Appreciation Day. Here […]

Fashion sketches have no size chart, and that’s ok

Ladies, we need to have a serious conversation about fashion, clothing, and models, and real women. Because, as you might suspect, it’s hard to use all four of those words in one sentences and expect an apples-to-apples comparison any which way.

The 64th Emmy Awards were just about to lull me into an early bedtime on Sunday night when I realized I had been missing the obvious fashion connection all night: Chartreuse. (Yellow chartreuse, if I may be specific.) In the sea of wispy television stars wearing wispy, tulle-covered concoctions, several stars stepped out in this […]
