Jack gets the winter look just right in this well-put together ensemble! Looking for outerwear at Goodwill is a great way to multiply your cold weather stockpile of fashions! Jack went shopping shortly before our photo shoot and was thrilled to find this MAIZE/NY quilted down coat for just $14.99. This kind of coat is both lightweight and cozy and perfect for when the seasonal winds blow. This coat has an upscale look thanks to the zipper elements and quilting design. I added in some tan skinny chinos from H&M that were $4.99 at Goodwill, and a vintage ski sweater from former Milwaukee and nationwide retailer, GIMBELS that I also found at Goodwill for $6.99. TIP: Knowing vintage brands always helps you find amazing items at our stores! Jack brought along his own Timberland boots which complimented the style vibes of this awesome outfit perfectly. Goodwill comes to the rescue again for affordable and fun winter choices for every member of the family!
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.
Vera goes dramatic and monochromatic in this classy, dressed up look. If you read my Amazing Looks descriptions each month, you’ll see that here we did exactly what I always preach—make sure to always check out the coats and dresses first when you’re shopping at Goodwill. Why? Because a great coat or dress usually holds up well, and this is definitely the case with what Vera is wearing here. In fact, Vera herself found this beautiful black wool with fur trim coat from Alorna/NY at a Goodwill store near her home in Illinois. So, all I had to do was pair it with a beautiful Ralph Lauren dress I found at Goodwill for $9.99. The shoes were also from Goodwill (also found by Vera). This is definitely a perfect picture of elegance, style, and sophistication all in one outfit! Bravo for this kick-off to a new and more fashionable year ahead.
