Sam rhymes with glam right? So here she is showing us how to do a retro look right. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, finding a great dress is a key to having a successful wardrobe. I always look for unique details and styling when perusing the dress rack at my local Goodwill. I was familiar with the brand name “Stop Staring”, which is a company that designs vintage-looking dresses out of modern fabrics. This one was new with tags for just $7.99! It is primarily black with pink accents in the kick pleats, buttons and other details. This, combined with the styling of Impressions salon for a retro-looking hairdo, and we have a winning fashionable look on Sam. To keep it modern, we opted to use her own peep-toe booties. Wow, is the only word I can think of!

Isaiah looks fresh for the end of summer in this casually-fun outfit. Our models often bring items that they already have with them to the photo shoot, and these shorts are his own! Playing off the salmon color, I added a graphic t-shirt in gray-and-blue from Marvel Comics that was $3.99, and then I gave it a preppy spin with this pink-and-blue striped button down from designer Ralph Lauren priced at $6.99. The brown lace-ups are his own addition to this colorful and funky look. Remember, putting it all together is part of the joy of getting dressed and with Goodwill you can do it for a lot less!
