Our model Emily is print perfect in this beautiful dress from Mossimo that was just $6.99! It’s important to recognize a print that will work for you and this one covers all the bases. It’s not too colorful, but it is bold enough to stand out in a crowd. Dresses are always a great buy at Goodwill for the business woman, as well as the gal that likes to glam-up for special occasions. When Emily came to our photo shoot with some wardrobe pieces, I loved her ¾-length coat in white. It’s always great to have structured items like this that pair easily with dresses or separates. This coat and dress combo is fashion magazine worthy in my humble opinion. We did some flower earrings and a black pendant necklace that were a bargain at $1.49 and $1.99, as they added polish, but didn’t vie for attention with the rest of the look. Classic nude pumps like these by Bamboo ($6.99) should be a staple in any style-conscious woman’s closet. Emily is literally a breath of fresh fashion air.
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.

IJ is ready for spring after a dull winter, and it doesn’t get more fun and casual than a great jeans outfit. Goodwill is a great place for jeans–and the ones you see here are no exception! These all-cotton DKNY jeans were just $4.99 and I couldn’t resist pairing them with the clever Darth Vader in roller skates t-shirt from Star Wars that was $3.99. If those prices don’t make you happy and excited for warm-weather shenanigans I don’t know what will! We topped it off with a thin cotton cardigan in gray-and-green from BDG for $4.99. These types of cardigans are great casual layering pieces for men and women alike. For accessories we went with the classic black watch and sunglasses from Merona that were $6.99 and $4.99, respectively. Since our model is already a man of style we used his Chuck Taylor by Converse tennis shoes to elevate the cool factor of this look. His bright smile says it all!
