Boots with options

While I was poking around our local Goodwill stores for #Back2School scores, these boots jumped out as a must-have for September style. A size 9, these Madden Girl boots would normally retail for $60 or more. I was drawn in by the southwestern-print lining, but a closer look revealed more to love about these flat […]

Guest Blogger: Recent Goodwill Additions

Hello, DC Goodwill Fashionista readers!  As a follower of this blog and a lover of anything vintage, coming up with a post topic for you all was surprisingly a little difficult. Maybe it is my indecisiveness or just overload of ideas in my head. I have decided to show you some of my latest finds […]


Boot up for fall

Although I used to be completely and wholly against booties, I’m starting to come around.

These Versace shoes really got me going.  They elicited the usual […]


Gimme a Wedgie

I sure didn’t want one in middle school, that’s for sure.  But now?  Please!!!  I’m talking about shoes, of course.    Wedges are my FAVE summer go-to shoe.  As a shorty, I am always looking to increase my stature by any means possible.  And stilettos can get a bit painful, as I’m sure you’ve realized.  […]
