Sabrina takes the classic little black dress into the glamour realm in this stunning Jeffrey & Dana black gown with lace inset bodice. Fabulous details like the lace are what make this chic and expensive looking, so keep that in mind when you’re shopping for a knockout dress. This look is both covered up, yet body conscious because of the way the gown fits. This dress is made of a bias cut rayon/crepe fabric that clings to the figure in all the right ways. Bias cut simply means that the fabric was cut across the grain rather than with the grain, so it allows the fabric to flow and move softly. Jewelry can go two ways, first we have classic pearl earrings and necklace, and then just for fashion-forward fun, we added the chandelier earrings that feature extravagant peacock feathers. Extra special evening drama is certain with the addition of a Ronni Nicole black and red velvet coat. This is an unexpected, yet fantastic piece to have in your wardrobe for just such an occasion. Too often women wear their daytime coats for evening affairs. If you find a great coat like this buy it! It will come in handy for the odd formal event you may have to attend, and look marvelous with so many dressy outfits. Sabrina’s classic pumps complete, but don’t compete with this red carpet worthy ensemble!
The models you see in this blog are actual Goodwill shoppers who donated their time to participate in our annual Amazing Looks photo shoot. All clothing was selected from our very own Goodwill Store & Donation Centers and styled by Goodwill Fashion Expert, Bjorn Nasett. Hair and makeup was provided by Kitty Tierney of Impressions and all photography was created by Jessica Kaminski of Refinery Milwaukee.
All images for Goodwill's Amazing Looks prior to 2019 were supplied by John Grant Photography.
Our model Matt shows us all how to wear a sport coat with style! Navy blue is always a great alternative to black or grey, and works hard for the guy wearing it all year round! Here we have a Haggar-brand vintage jacket with classic detailing like patch pockets and brass buttons. Simple khaki slacks from Dockers are a casual way to go with a blazer like this instead of traditional dress pants. What is really cool about this look is the tone-on-tone use of shirt and tie. The tomato soup-red Kenneth Cole shirt looks amazing with the red and gold tie from Brooks Brothers. Matt used his own brown loafers to complete the look. Take note guys, infusing a little color in your daily attire at the office is definitely the way to go. Why not try out a colorful dress shirt? All the other elements in this good-looking ensemble are just simple classic pieces that you may already have, or should look for on your next trip to Goodwill!
