Mid-finger rings: Love, or hate?

In another edition of “do we like this?” I give to you, dear readers: The mid-finger ring. I’ve seen ‘em all over the fashion pages and on trend alerts galore. These rings sit just below your middle knuckle, closer to your fingertip than your hand. While sometimes bold in color, they’re usually made of a […]

Hi! My name is Apollina from Apollinas.com and I am so excited to do a guest post for DC Goodwill! I am a long time Goodwill fan. Growing up, we didn’t have a lot of money, we lived off of food stamps hand-me-downs. Being someone who’s always valued personal style and a sense of fashion, […]

Well, dear reader, because we all know that accessories can make an outfit—and a costume, too! For a bit of inspiration and the nerve to alter jewelry, we turn to Real Girl Runway, who […]

Statement necklaces are here to stay

A few seasons ago, I would have told you that big, bold statement necklaces were a passing fad. But time has proven that these chunkly necklaces are here to stay—at least, for a few more seasons.

It’s a Lock

I have to admit that I’m not usually too interested in trends in accessories.  I’m a lover of vintage jewelry, for example, so the last necklace I bought was probably on-trend in 1968.  That’s not to say that I don’t notice when patterns emerge, which is why I’ve been noticing padlocks as key components of […]

First Lady Of Fashion

It’s quite amusing to many of us that so many publications are talking about a new, fashionable Washington, D.C. because for as long as I can remember, finding those words in the same sentence guaranteed that one was telling a joke.

Au Revoir, Oh-Eight

Last year, dear readers, I recounted for you the trends of 2007 that I hoped would sneak quietly into the back of our collective closets.
