Fashionista Friday: Stephanie’s Ankle Strap Luichiny Heels

Fashionistas, I’ve been following Stephanie’s Instagram and blog  for a year or so now, and gosh, she is Atlanta’s own Goodwill expert! Week-after-week, she’s always taking something new from Goodwill home that makes me thing, “Darn! I wish I had found that!” Stephanie is a wife, mother, freelance makeup artist and all around bargain hunter from Virginia […]

Inspiration: Fourth of July Style

“I don’t think you need to drop a ton of money to feel stylish or put-together and that’s always been my mindset.”  I couldn’t agree more with Brittany, the woman behind the popular blog and Instagram, Thrifts and Threads.  She has a great mix of classic and on trend pieces and loves to mix and […]

When does a shoe become “ugly?”

“Ugly” shoes are all the rage. J.Crew has Birkinstocks all over their catalog, Racked thinks Tevas look modern, and we’ve all seen the monstrosities that have been traipsing down the runways lately. It’s gone past bloggers and tastemakers to the general public: ugly shoes are okay. Practical shoes are okay. Having ugly shoes doesn’t mean […]


The normcore snore

Just when the millennial woman is just figuring out her personal style, normcore has come along to squash it. The concept of normcore is still so fuzzy to me that I keep reading New York Magazine‘s long, detailed piece on it. For all the rereading and studying and Instagram-flipping I’ve done, the best answer seems […]

Golden Globes red carpet looks: Skin is out!

Awards-show season is here, and like many, I mostly enjoy the fashion. Where else can you see such a variety of gowns that are either fresh from the runway, or custom designed? It’s a dress-lover’s dream. This year I noticed that many of the ladies on the best-dressed lists had one thing in common: a […]

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 […]


Required reading: Racked DC

Love the latest fashion news, but want that local flavor? Racked DC is here to save the day. This longtime favorite of mine recently opened a DC office, led by savvy style hunter Adele Chapin. I’ve mentioned the local shopping site to several friends, only to have them say, “What’s Racked?” That’s gotta change, ladies. […]

Out with the old—say hello to 2014 with Goodwill!

The end of the year is here, and means one thing for sure: long lines at Goodwill as frugal enthusiasts prepare to drop off their year-end donations! If you’re making room in your closet for new sweaters and jackets you received as gifts, then get ready to donate your pre-loved duds to Goodwill. Here are […]

Guest Blogger: Arm Swag

I take my jewelry cues from Mr. T. and clothing isn’t the only thing I’ll be layering this season. You see, I have a mild obsession with what I call “arm swag.” As the name implies, it’s a party on your arm. Sparked by my growing collection of bracelets, I noticed that I loved them […]
