Charmaine is the perfect illustration of my adage that all you need is “one great dress”. In this case, she’s wearing a classic shirtwaist dress in a small leopard print that buttons down the front. This Ralph Lauren designer dress was just $6.99 at my local Goodwill store. Don’t shy away from leopard prints! Just make sure the print looks rich in color and not cheap. A structured piece in leopard, such as a jacket or jeans, always works to create a stylish look. We simply added a wide belt in a soft brown, gold earrings, and a necklace from her own wardrobe. Beige Bandolino pumps were found by our model at Goodwill for $6.99—they coordinate but don’t dominate the leopard print. The brown leather designer purse was $14.99. Fashionable and professional is what I’d call this look!
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.

Happy Pride Month! In this Amazing Look from Goodwill, Helena borrows a few things from the boys to round out the perfect outfit that displays her creative personality and unique sense of style. To start the look, Helena is wearing a pair of floral-print skinny jeans by designer Madewell that were just $4.99 at Goodwill. Then, to play with a fantastic menswear look, we used a light blue button-down dress shirt, a black necktie, and Chuck Taylor shoes from Helena's wardrobe. To top it all off, we added a Mossimo blazer with faux leather insets ($5.99) and some attitude glasses in a burnt gold ($2.99). Ladies, don't forget to take a look through the menswear department at Goodwill the next time you’re there and elevate your own style!
