Who Wears Short Shorts?

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you are most likely aware of my long and somewhat troubled history with a classic summer staple that I can confidently assume most of us have had a dance with: the jean short (aka the jort). Denim cut offs, cuffed denim, mom jorts – each season, the […]

What I Wore: A LBD with a Pop of Hot Pink

It’s been unbelievably hot outside fashionistas, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear the color black and look cute while staying comfortable. Black is a color that is known to absorb the sun, so I do try and stay away from wearing this during the summer, however, because it’s one of my favorite colors to […]


Fashionista Friday: Plaid and Fringe Sandals

While perusing Instagram (as I normally do), I stumbled upon the account of two avid Chicago Goodwill shoppers, who  have such fly style! They both sure know how to put together sophisticated and cute ensembles, mostly comprised of all Goodwill finds! These two Goodwill fashionistas reside in the windy city, but that weather doesn’t prevent […]

Memorial Day May Madness Alexandria Meetup Recap

Last Saturday morning, more than 20 local DC Goodwill Fashionistas and I hit the newer Alexandria Goodwill spot: the Alexandria Kings Highway location. This was actually our biggest Meetup yet! Tons of new and familiar faces were able to make it out, everyone got to peruse the store an hour prior to opening, AND everything was […]


Fashionista Friday: Stephie’s Goodwill haul

Stephie, the brilliant mind behind Thrift and Style, is today’s featured fashionista. She’s been on my radar after she recently revealed a fabulous #DCGoodwill haul on Instagram. Stephie is the first thrifty fashion blogger that I met in “real life,” so she’s got a special place in my heart. I had the chance to join her […]


My Favorite Thing (From Goodwill): Merona Stacked Heels

I’ve got a confession to make today, dear readers. Those Merona heels I wore earlier this week… they were not my favorite thing from Goodwill until I showed them to you. Honestly, I have had them for months now but I haven’t worn them because I could not figure out if they were actually chic […]

Dark but darling

Here’s another chance to own something that came from the Fashionista’s own closet! I found this Isaac Mizrahi for Target dress at Goodwill (where else?!) a few years ago, but never found the right place to wear it. So it’s time to pass it onto a lucky dear reader. A size 6, this dress is […]

My favorite thing (from Goodwill): A summer dress—two ways!

It’s been a while since I showed off one of my favorite finds from Goodwill! My recent visit to Goodwill Keystone Area resulted in an armload of beautiful bargains. This lightweight denim dress is possibly the softest, most comfortable dress I’ve ever worn. It’s not a bank-breaker—just Target’s standard Mossimo brand—but I couldn’t resist the […]

Getting hitched on a budget? Don’t mind if “I do”

Weddings are expensive, and you don’t need to watch a “Say Yes to the Dress” marathon to know it. With summer wedding season upon us, it’s hard to avoid thinking about the many, many costs in celebrating blessed nuptials. But what’s a bride on a budget to do? It looks like Target is giving brides […]

Drooling over Jason Wu (for Target)

I’ve been drooling over these new Jason Wu for Target looks for days now. Hands down, this is going to be my favorite Target-designer collaboration (so far), and I might actually hang out online until midnight on February 5 to to try to claim some of these budget-friendly frocks. While Missoni had shoppers knocking down […]
