Saturday Spotlight: DC Goodwill on South Dakota Avenue

The DCGF’s Take: The South Dakota Avenue store is one of my favorites, dear readers. This store is bursting with natural light which we all know is critical when shopping for clothes!

No More Brown Bagging

What? Is the DCGF denying her green living ways? No, of course not. I just mean to say that brown bags are so boring for fall. A girl needs color in her life, no? Of course you’re going to be wearing lots of chocolate browns in velvet, tweed, and the like once cool weather rolls […]
