What I Wore: Athletic Meets Edgy Vintage

Fashionistas, I’m especially excited this morning because I get the opportunity to share one of my favorite looks as of late. Why is it one of my favorite looks? It combines almost all of my favorite types of attire into one cohesive look. Sometimes it’s difficult to mesh styles and pieces together. At first glance, […]

Saturday Six Under Six: Fall Favorites

This month’s Six Under Six series continues on with some favorite items that I’ve scored and love to wear in the fall. Cool weather style is all about layers – but, that can get expensive! Tank, blouse, sweater, jacket, pants, socks, legwarmers, boots: that is a lot of cash just for one outfit. Who is […]


Best of Guest Blogger: Layering Your Summer Favorites for Fall

Hey Goodwill Fashionistas, it’s Armanda from Thriftionary! If you are like me, you may be having a tough time figuring out what to wear in this crazy transitional weather. In the morning it’s 50 degrees, but by lunch it’s 80! It’s time to start thinking in layers. I am going to show you why you don’t […]


Fashionista Friday: Deb’s Talbots find at Goodwill

I couldn’t help but compliment Deb’s layered look on Instagram earlier this week. I mean, weren’t we already thinking about layers? Deb, the voice behind DC style blog Real Girl Runway, responded, “The silk blouse is Talbots and it’s a Goodwill #thrift find!” Perfect! (That’s always my reaction, but let me be excited, okay?) I love […]

Fashionista Friday: @gotitatgoodwill’s salvaged J.Crew sweater

You’re following the DCGF on Instagram, right? No pressure. But, we’re Instagram friends, riiiight? One of my favorite Instagram users is @gotitatgoodwill, which chronicles a local teacher’s Goodwill scores from stores in the DC area.

Here’s your New Year’s Eve dress!

New Year’s Eve can cause unnecessary stress for even the most expert of fashionistas. Dress codes can be tricky, and the weather can be even trickier. But behold! Your ideal dress for ringing in 2014. This little black dress from Ann Taylor is interesting without being too trendy. It’s strapless, has a slightly dropped waist, […]

Fashion experiments, made possible with Goodwill

Sometimes, you just hit the frugal jackpot. I stopped by the South Dakota Avenue Goodwill store on Monday with the primary purpose of dropping off a bag of donations from my closet and a bag from my neighbor’s closet (What can I say? We’re doing our winter cleaning.). I had a secondary purpose—to look for […]

No. 2

If I had to pick one piece of clothing that made me think about going back to school in September, it would be this sweater! This cotton sweater from J.Crew (buy here), found at our local Goodwill store, is tissue-thin for easy layering. It features a v-neck, pearly buttons, and two front pockets at the […]

My favorite thing (from Goodwill): Beach layers

A few of my new favorite finds from Goodwill don’t appear to be right for summer at first glance, but I beg to differ. While visiting Goodwill Keystone Area, I hit the jeans jackpot. The big bonus of shopping consistently at a few stores (or scouting for your favorite labels at Goodwill) is that once […]

Fashionista Friday: Tonya

I absolutely love when Fashionistas wear Goodwill to work. Not only does it jive with our central mission—after all, proceeds from our retail stores go back into our job training programs—but it’s always fun to see how people are sharing their personal style in their professional environment. Goodwill shopper Tonya sent us a glimpse of […]
