The Fashion of Goodwill


A special sneak peek for you

If you caught my post yesterday, you know that the official countdown is on. In just ten short days, the 7th Fashion of Goodwill runway show will be taking over the Marriott Marquis in DC. Today, I thought I would give you, my dear readers, an exclusive VIP look at what you’ll see strutting down […]

Protect your wardrobe from winter!

If it’s not snowing, it’s sleeting. If it’s not sleeting, it’s raining. This winter has been rough on us here in the DC area. If we’re not emotionally downtrodden yet (the minute the sun comes out, I practically run outdoors!), our wardrobe is starting to feel the effects of this harsh winter. Snow melts, but […]

#ThrowbackThursday: An early wake-up call with FOX 5

Look at that young chickadee, who is that? Wait, it’s me. I got up super early to help DC Goodwill kick off its first downtown pop-up shop with Holly Morris from FOX 5. This day in July 2012 will forever be remembered in my personal history. After a busy morning taping segments with Holly, I […]


Guest Blogger: Find your holiday style at Goodwill

My guilty holiday pleasure doesn’t come in the form of sugary sweets or classic cocktails; it comes in silk, sparkles and stilettos. As the leaves begin to fall and cool, crisp air moves in, there is only one thing on my mind: what shall I wear to all the holiday affairs? I absolutely love holiday […]

Guest Blogger: DIY Socks

If you are like me and want to wear open toe heels for as long as possible, socks come in very handy. In this DIY, we will add some more fun to a regular pair of socks with jewel embellishment and sequins. This is also a quick way to recycle and update socks that you […]


My minimalist journey

Having access to a plethora of clothing, accessories, and home goods at perfect prices can be dangerous. How do you know when you have enough? At which point will one’s overstuffed closet actually, truly burst? I don’t have the answer to those questions, but I ask them on a regular basis. I’m preparing for some […]

Let them wear shorts, I guess

A few weekends ago I noticed quite a few young ladies out and about wearing shorts. It was about 55 degrees out, and breezy (read: it was cold). Some of the women wore thick tights under their shorts. But some of them had their legs out all over the place, covered in the slightest tiny […]

Fashionista Friday: Morgan

Blogger Morgan’s flawless head-to-toe look earns her this week’s Fashionista Friday honors. She recently hit the town in a fun black-and-white look, but the trimmings put her into the star zone. From top to bottom, Morgan showed off a gold necklace, golden collar tips, a belt with a gold chain feature and a gold buckle, […]

Goodwill Halloween costumes: 90s favorites

Today’s Halloween costumes that are oh-so-easy to find at Goodwill come courtesy of some “classic” entertainment from the 1990s. Remember that if your costume du jour is a character with real-life tendencies (meaning, they were not a super hero or a talking animal), you’ll probably be able to find all the components of your ensemble […]

So cool, Cole Haan

If I’m looking for shoes at my local Goodwill, you can be sure that I’m on the lookout for Cole Haan pumps. Lucky for you, this pair didn’t fit me. Time to pass them on to a lucky online shopper! I’ve always admired Cole Haan shoes for their classic style, durability, and above all, comfort. […]
