Goodwill Shoe Haul


By Laura Fox, The Fashionable Fox

HOLY MOLY! The Fashionable Fox hit the ultimate jackpot this month at my local Goodwill.

It was just like any other day... I was strolling the aisles when I came across a basket FULL of brand new shoes from Target! Is this real life?!

As with anything at a thrift/resale store, you pray to the shopping gods that it's your size, and lucky for me, the bulk of these shoes were in my 8-9 shoe size range. WAHOO!

Recycled Beverage Coasters

By Nicole Rogers Schmirler

With the fall season upon us, I naturally think of Christmas gifts for family, friends and colleagues. An all-out gift-giving frenzy is not my style. Nope. I’m centered on one-of-a-kind AND cost-effective presents. My 2016 agenda is protecting my home’s surfaces using recycled materials that flash style—beverage coasters! The good news is Goodwill has just about everything I need, literally.

Mixing Prints and Shimmery Metallics for Spring

By Laura Fox - The Fashionable Fox

Happy spring, Goodwill shoppers!

The Midwest weather has certainly had a mind of its own these days, but don’t let a gloomy day put the damper on your wardrobe.

The Fashionable Fox hasn’t exactly been able to frolic around in sundresses and chiffon skirts lately, but I’m still working hard to come up with spring-friendly outfits that work in cooler weather, rain or shine.

Rocking the Right Look with Goodwill

Hey, hi, hello everyone it’s Mia!

And, I know that it’s been, a while but bear with me. So, if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (which you should!) @mia_wedel  ;), you will know that I recently went to two concerts. First, I saw Daya and Jack and Jack, and three days after that I saw LANY and Troye Sivan, which was the best night of my life! (If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram you will know that I am obsessed with Troye Sivan.) Anyways, let’s get into what this blog is really about…These are some nice, comfy-but-cool outfits you can wear to a concert.

Five Common Misconceptions About Upcycling

By Megan Wild

If you’re a fan of recycling, you’re going to love upcycling. While using something and then turning all or part of it into something else is fine, there are still a lot of chemical and energy processes involved in the process of recycling. Upcycling on the other hand, uses only your imagination and your energy to take an item and turn it into something even better.
