Recap: Goodwill Fairfax Meetup

Fashionistas, I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Although it was rainy, a bunch of other fashionistas and I headed to the Goodwill Fairfax location yesterday morning for breakfast treats, bonding and shopping.

Logos: A Status Symbol or Tacky Emblem?

Dear readers, today I’m talking about something that’s a bit more on the sensitive side: logos, my opinion of them, and what they mean to all of us. To begin, I’ll start out with an anecdote from many years ago about my encounter with handbags, logos, and my true tastes. A while ago (maybe 4 […]


6 Under 6: Back-to-School 2015 Edition

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!

My Favorite Thing (From Goodwill): Kate Spade Leather Accessories

Oh, Kate Spade, you embody class and polish but man, are you expensive. I filled my cart during the 75% off sale three times this […]
