My favorite thing (from Goodwill): Easy day dress

For what will probably be the last time, let’s take a look at my most favorite recent find from Goodwill. I snagged it at the South Dakota Avenue store on a whim, without even trying it on.  I noticed elastic in the back of this H&M dress and used my old “oh, it’ll fit!” assumption […]

Fashionista Friday: Mere’s spring blouse

Mere’s got a shade-flipping look going on, thanks to her recent Goodwill spree. “Rockin my most recent #goodwill purchase this awesome spring day! #jobsin14 #edited4goodwill“ She posted on Twitter. Spring might last about 30 seconds here in DC, but I love this snippet of an ensemble for days when you need to be professional, but […]

Fabulous finds from #Edited4Goodwill

Last Wednesday,  I slogged through torrential downpours to be delighted upon my arrival at Edited for Goodwill! This pop-up shopping event is one of my favorites because it brings Goodwill’s amazing bargains right to me in the city. The house was packed (with three umbrella bins to prove it) with folks lucky to take a […]

A certain stripe

If you’re ready to savor the nautical side of summer, this skirt has got you covered! While I do love the stripes, the price has got to be the best part. This J.Crew skirt is just from last spring, and would have cost you at least $75 to buy it new. This Goodwill bargain (size […]

Fashionista Friday: Waverly’s vintage ensemble

I met Waverly for the first time this past weekend at the #FwdYourFashion event in Brookland. I didn’t even get a chance to shop the DC Goodwill trunk show since I was working in my shop, but when Waverly came in to visit I could tell instantly that she was probably a Goodwill Expert Level […]

Guest Blogger: Date Night on a Dime

There’s something about the warm embrace of sunshine following the brutality of winter that makes me want to shave my winter legs, slink into a flirty frock and be taken out on a wonderful date. Regardless if you’re searching for your spring fling or are locked in love, a new outfit can give you that […]

My favorite thing (from Goodwill): Wingback chair

I finally found the perfect wingback chair for my tiny apartment! I had been searching for a chair for reading and lounging for months, and Mr. Fashionista had promised me one as a birthday gift as soon as the right one made itself apparent. I’m so glad the perfect chair for me was hanging out […]

Fashionista Friday: Jen’s new nude shoes

“I love having small feet,” Jen declared on Instagram upon finding these never-worn Nine West heels at DC Goodwill. It’s easy to be jealous! Finding shoes is often one of the biggest challenges of shopping secondhand. Clothing that’s a bit too big can be tailored, but you can’t do much about the size of a […]

Nearly nautical

Dock-strolling, boardwalk-snacking days are upon us, dear reader, which results in one big question: What are you going to wear to the beach?! Whether your version of “waterfront” is a stream, river, of the big, bad Atlantic, you’ve got to have summertime style to match. Enter this bold and beautiful dress by Ophelia for FC […]

Pretty in pink

This week’s Good Buy feels too good to be true. I’m smitten! This blush-pink, sequined dress by Venus is sure to be a Goodwill steal. Venus is known for its form-fitting dresses ready for a night out on the town. But this particular piece is a bit more demure—without sacrificing the bling. A size 6, […]
