Goodwill shopper and single mom, Katy, is doing a dressed-up daytime casual look this month. Layering is the way to go for fashion, as well as warmth during these long winter months. Here we did another look with jeans we found for $4.99 from AG, then we added a cotton t-shirt from J Crew ($5.99) as a base and topped it off with a great boucle knit cardigan in light blue from K&K for $4.99. Pretty basic right? Well, we didn’t stop there. Jewelry and accessories are what MAKE a tee and jeans look! I assembled some awesome accessories from Retique (Goodwill’s boutique store located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward) starting with a necklace for $6.99, earrings for $4.99, and a great statement scarab-type ring that was well priced at $14.99. Continuing our gold standard, we utilized a metallic leather belt from Anne Klein that was only 99 cents, and some gold Sperry top sider slip-ons ($6.99). Why not elevate your daytime looks with some great pieces like this from Goodwill?
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.
Kurt is ready for anything his day might throw him in this easy, yet sophisticated take on casual menswear. Kurt buys many of his clothes at Goodwill, and his wife also enjoys the thrill of the hunt! When it came time to do our photo shoot, I simply asked Kurt to bring along some of his favorite items he purchased at our stores. Then I found a wool, Nordstrom mock turtleneck in black for $19.99 at Retique (Goodwill’s boutique store located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward). I thought it might work great with these essentials he found at Goodwill: Levi’s brand jeans - $5.99, ostrich leather cowboy boots in black - $19.99, and a fantastic Pele Studio leather jacket in brown that was just $29.99! Now these are pieces that can work for any man’s wardrobe! Next time you’re out shopping at Goodwill make sure to look for jeans, jackets, and boots because you can never have enough of these go-to items in your wardrobe!
