Helena is wearing a combination of separates that suggest a funky, bohemian look. For example, the sleeveless top is a perfect way to beat the heat and feel the sun on your skin. This Liz Claiborne blouse had some interesting details and a chic blue-and-green pattern with banding at the bottom. It had a very finished, yet casual look, and for $3.99, it’s a great option instead of a knit top. We paired it with her own black chino slacks and Chuck Taylor tennis shoes—basic pieces that every gal or guy should have! This takes the look to a casual and fun place! The kicker here is the brilliant cuff that was so interesting I thought it was the only accessory she needed! And, was just $2.99! Putting yourself together is easy with a few cool, summery pieces that you might find at your local Goodwill the next time you’re shopping or donating!
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.
Charley shows us how a perfect print and a stylish dress can really take you to memorable summer fashion—instantly! This Soprano brand floral print dress was just $6.99. The deep saturation of the colors in the print itself is why this dress works so well. I always love a dark background floral because it feels a bit more sophisticated and has a greater style impact. This is more “summer fun” than “Little House on the Prairie” for sure! Charley had her favorite flip flops with her when we took these photos, and they’re always a perfect companion to a great summer dress. I added some golden yellow “attitude glasses” to bring a little humor and playfulness to this awesome look. TIP: Go to the dress rack first when hitting one of our well-organized Goodwill stores and see what you can score!
