Charley is the picture of spring in this floral dress with empire waist. It was just $5.99 and is done in a wonderful multi-color print by Bonnie Jean. A girl of any age should have a couple of go-to dresses like this one when special occasions require a little more than a t-shirt and jeans. That doesn’t mean however that you can’t make it less fussy. By using Charley’s own brown leather sandals that have a more rustic quality, we’ve taken away the “precious” little girl vibe, and gone for more of a fashion-forward young lady confident look. Just for fun we also utilized a floral headband that you can learn to make for your daughter or yourself by checking out my blog here. All in all, this look is beautiful, classic, and age appropriate all at the same time! Here’s to sunnier days ahead!
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.
Robert is a guy who always seems to be smiling! That’s because he likes the way he looks, and it's one of the things that guided me in choosing items for his look this month—along with his confident outgoing attitude. So to pull this off, we mixed it up a little bit with a black-and-white houndstooth pattern t-shirt from Alternative Earth, that went along with a pale-yellow cardigan in a lightweight cotton by Express. This look is a nod to the 1980s a little bit, so we also used some great accessories like the black-and-white patterned sunglasses for $2.99, as well as the cool watch and black boots from Robert’s own wardrobe. TIP: One of the easiest ways for a guy to look a little more dressed up is to have a pair of black jeans on hand like these Lee jeans that I found for $5.99 at Goodwill. This is a casually-cool look for any spring and summertime activity, and don’t forget to wear your smile—just like our model Robert does!
