Goodwill Good Buy of the Week

Grunge garden

It’s a little bit grunge, and a little bit Gatsby. And this floral number is an excellent Good Buy to wear out and about all summer long. This dress balances a sexy flapper-dress silhouette and spaghetti straps with a modest neckline and sweet flowers. Layers of violet flowers on alternating white and blue backgrounds makes […]

Natural, neutral

The brights and neons of summer are a lot of fun, but they’re not exactly soothing. If you’re looking to swing into the season with a softer touch, this sheer top may be perfect for you. This chocolate brown top (an XL from MG Originals) is sheer with a ruffled, elastic waist and reinforced shoulders. […]

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 […]

Short and sweet

This week’s good buy plays with the grunge, early-90s look that’s been trending, but keeps it sugary sweet. This three-quarter sleeved dress has a lace top in white and a deep scoop neck. The skirt, falling from an empire waist, is one of my favorite colors: aqua! It’s a size small by Modern Vintage Boutique, […]

Feeling floral

Here’s another Good Buy that reflects our sunny, happy spring mood. It’s an ivory sleeveless dress by Whimsy dotted with a landscape of blue, pink, and yellow flowers. The hand-drawn appearance of the pattern is sweet and charming—and I suspect the wearer will be much the same. Featuring a v-neck front and deep-v back, you’ll […]

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, […]

Peachy scene

Spring makes me think of such sweet things. Mimosas. Sherbert. Bouquets of flowers bought from street vendors. Oh, and fun clothes. Made from 100% silk, this peachy J.Crew top is a size 0. It features pearly buttons down the front, a fun ruffled scoop neck, and a full-coverage back. This is a top you’ll want […]

Secret garden

This skirt has me swooning for spring, but not worrying about the DC’s finicky weather. Imagine yourself in a garden maze filled with flowering vines, topiaries, and fountains. Now imagine doing that in early spring without your legs freezing. It’s all possible with this skirt! The secret is corduroy. This cotton corduroy skirt is the […]

A picnic in the park?

Here’s another Good Buy from my own closet! J.Crew makes the “perfect shirt” and this is definitely a contender. It’s 100 percent cotton! It’s a casual shirt that you can still wear under a blazer! You can roll up the sleeves! It looks like a picnic tablecloth! Okay, that last part was really just a […]
