Christopher, our model this month, is in a casual mood to start the New Year, so of course he’s wearing jeans and a cool sweater. I found this awesome ski-themed sweater at Goodwill with the price tags still on from the original retailer! But, this Merona sweater was just $4.99 at one of our well-organized stores. To go along with that we took these great fitting jeans in a dark blue hue from Levi’s brand for just $9.99. Seriously, what more do you need! Our model supplied his own leather loafers in brown and tan from Stacy Adams shoes to finish it all off. Can you tell that we shot this look in the summer? Christopher forgot his socks! Although a lot of guys forgo socks these days, so yes, it is still a thing. If I looked as good as Chris does I’d go sockless too!
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.
Catherine was our Amazing Looks Model Contest winner last year and she’s a veteran Goodwill shopper! She has unique taste, so we decided to go with that for her look this month. We mixed it up with a combination of many separates, starting with her own casual black slacks as a base. From there we mixed patterns with a striped top from Who What Wear that was just $4.99, and then topped it with the multi-colored jacket from Russ that featured gold buttons for $4.99. A red cuff with gold, and some cool earrings add just another touch of fun for $1.99 each. To take it to a sporty place we went with these white shoes with sparkle from A+ for $14.99, and added a black handbag for $12.99. Catherine has glasses to go with her moods, so here she chose some cool red glasses to add that last piece of flair to an already awesome outfit! Think out of the box like Catherine does, and you’ll have a new outlook as well for the New Year ahead!
