Rain or Shine, I’m Looking Good

The other day I was coming home on the Metro after a drenching storm when I saw a fellow traveler with her pants rolled up.  Now, these may have been a fashion statement, but I think she was just trying to keep her pants from getting soaked in the downpour.  It wasn’t the most fashionable […]

All the items are to die for, but seemingly unattainable. Luckily, these boutiques are not the only places to find vintage clothing. Thrift stores carry plenty of vintage gems– […]

Best of Guest Blogger: Fall Wardrobe on a Dime

This Fall, I am seeing vintage-inspired clothing everywhere. Do you know how excited that makes me? It’s basically my favorite style. It’s fun and classy at the same time. Except, I like the real-deal. Why pay retail prices for knock-off clothing when you can thrift for actual vintage pieces for a fraction of the cost? […]

Rockville DC Goodwill Fashionistas MeetUp

I spent my Sunday morning shopping alongside my fellow DC Goodwill fashionistas during my October MeetUp at the Rockville store; some of us were so excited we were waiting on the sidewalk at 9:55am waiting for the doors open at 10:00am! I think it goes without saying that we went down to business very quickly. This was my first time visiting […]

My Goodwill Find: Beautiful Boden Embellished Top

I had a hard time passing today’s My Goodwill Find up, dear readers. You’re lucky this one was a little too big for me because I am so in love with this design and all the potential it gives to the basic shell. This piece, in a popping turquoise, is just one of those colors […]
