Fashionista Friday: Pattern Pants and Dancing

On Sunday night, my girl Sara and I attended a small dance party on U Street in DC that played hip-hop and R&B classics throughout the evening. Ladies were encouraged to rock fun printed pants for free entry. Naturally, we looked to Goodwill to ace this fashion challenge. Fun printed pants at Goodwill are typically under […]

What I Wore: Slacks for the Office

In the office, I love to wear dresses. They’re easy to style, one piece, and are pretty inexpensive from Goodwill (under $10). However, sometimes I like to amp up the boss lady in me and rock a pair of business slacks with cute oxfords. A few weeks ago, I stopped into one of the local […]

5 Under $5: Falls Church Annandale Goodwill Style

Fashionistas, I LOVE all of the Goodwills in Northern Virginia. But the Falls Church store on Annandale Rd sure has a solid place in my heart. Every time I go to this location, I ALWAYS find at least a few items that strike my fancy. Of course my last visit to this location was no […]

Fashionista-approved trend: Cropped pants

They’ve been on the scene long enough that if you don’t already have a pair (or two or three), it might be time to seek out some slim, cropped pants.   Trust me when I say that women of every size and shape can wear slim-fit pants. The trick is not to focus on the […]

Skirt-pants: Do we love them, or hate them?

It’s easy to write off a lot of looks you see on the runway. An ensemble might be a work of art, but be doomed for translation to a more practical, ready-to-wear version. And that’s fine—fashion is more about practicality. The art side just as valuable. This season, a look I never would have expected […]

Perfect work pants, volume II

I told you about my favorite pair of perfect work pants found at Edited for Goodwill, but I didn’t reveal that I actually found two great pairs of pants at the event. I promise, these are just as work-appropriate as the last. These red pants (place a bid here!) are by the Gap, and are […]

Go-anywhere perfect capris

I don’t get excited about pants or capris a lot mostly because it’s so hard for this fashionista to find the right fit. Is it just me? Am I the odd one out when it comes to perfectly fitting pants? But don’t let my lack of faith in pants get YOU down, dear reader. I […]
