Guest Blogger: Summer, Sunshine, Sandals, Sexy!!!!

Without sweaters, coats, gloves, scarves or any other heavy winter layers to worry about, summer is the one time of the year when you can slip on a sexy sun dress and let your accessories complete you look. It’s getting warm by the day, so time for sandals and showing off your pretty feet. But remember, you can’t slide them on and walk out […]

Twirl in tweed

  If you’re searching for a skirt that goes with just about everything in your wardrobe, this tweed number (place a bid here!) is a safe bet. It’s like an Impressionist work of art—from arm’s length, it looks like an ordinary green skirt. But up-close, this tweed garment has more colors than you could imagine! […]

Oh, chartreuse

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 […]

Go-anywhere perfect capris

I don’t get excited about pants or capris a lot mostly because it’s so hard for this fashionista to find the right fit. Is it just me? Am I the odd one out when it comes to perfectly fitting pants? But don’t let my lack of faith in pants get YOU down, dear reader. I […]

So a recent Goodwill dig in my hometown of Toronto, Canada yielded two wonderful fashion finds, both of which are, funnily enough, green. Not only that, they satisfied my “fab five thrift shop checklist.” When I thrift shop for clothing, I always look for these five things (good price is a given since I’m thrift […]

Not Just A Pretty Face

The person standing in front of me at the Corcoran‘s lecturn last night could not have been more aptly named to become an “eco model:” Summer Rayne Oakes – darling of the fashion magazine set and occasional-target of the mainstream press – spoke on being Naturally Fashionable, which is the title of her new book. […]


Ask The Fashionista: Goodwill Gone Green?

We get many questions here, dear readers, regarding Goodwill “green” initiatives. Regular readers know that your intrepid DCGF has travelled to the DC Green Festival, announced DC Goodwill’s computer recycling program, scoped out the coolest in eco-friendly home furnishings, and always makes sure you’re the first to know about the hottest new green designers and […]


Friday Furnishings: You Can’t Catch Me, I’m The Gingerbread Man

You know how you don’t really notice the prevalence of something until you start looking into it? And then that thing is everywhere? That’s how the DCGF feels about gingerbread houses. Don’t laugh! This is serious business, dear readers. I recall as a child poring over the December issue of Good Housekeeping for their annual […]
