What I Wore: Statement Pants

Trendy Tuesday: Wild Things

I love the fall. The air gets cool, the pumpkin spice everything makes it way into our lives just as the boots and scarves become staples once again. But what I really love about fall as a fashion gal are the slew of thick editions of my favorite fashion mags! Who else loves the fall (and […]

Fashionista Friday: Melissa

We’re so excited that our new-and-improved Goodwill store is now open in Rockville, but it’s no secret that some amazing deals were had at our old location leading up to the big move.
