Spring Green!

No, I’m not talking about the town in Wisconsin, but instead how the color green is the symbol of spring that we all recognize and appreciate. But, how many of us appreciate this color as a fashion statement? Green is tricky for a lot of people to wear. But let’s break down the components of that shade just a bit. Blue + Yellow = Green. When looking at items for your wardrobe, green doesn’t have to mean bright Leprechaun color, unless that’s what you’re drawn to. In reality there is quite a spectrum of shades in the green family that can be very user friendly—from pastel-bluish green, to yellow- green and, of course lots of other variations.

$10 Style Upgrade!

Around this time of year, I like to try to bring a bit of color into my wardrobe just to spread a little cheer. I always feel a bit happier when I see bright colors toward the end of winter. As the days get longer and the sun gets brighter—so should we.

Pattern Play

I love to do projects that relate to fashion. So, when I was at my local Goodwill recently, I bought some sewing patterns and had an idea to use them in a creative way to transform some Styrofoam mannequin heads that are used to display hats from a boutique where I work part time.

Tie Story

For working men who have to wear professional apparel, there’s nothing quite like the neck tie to perk up a dark suit during the wintertime. It makes perfect sense to add to your (or your husband, or significant other’s) tie collection by shopping the men’s area at your local Goodwill. With less than $20 in my pocket, I went in search of some cool (and perhaps even a bit artsy) ties that I could bring home to spruce up my own wardrobe, or give as gifts to dapper friends.

3 Legging Looks!

Love them or hate them, leggings are here to stay. For a lot of women leggings are an easy alternative to jeans and slacks. But, I have to say that as a rule, leggings should always be worn with a top or dress that has some coverage. I mean, if you’re working out at the gym then this rule could be broken, but as daytime or nightwear, it’s always better to opt for a modicum of modesty.

Sweater Weather

This time of year is the perfect time to take stock of your winter sweater collection. Go through and take out any sweaters you didn’t wear last season and put them aside to donate to Goodwill. This will clear the way to purchase some new-to-you pieces from a store in your area.

Made in the Shades!

Goodwill is a great resource for all things fashionable if you have the eye for it! (Pun intended.)  

Accessories are a great way to update anything you might wear every day of the year. That accessory could be a handbag, shoes, watch, jewelry, or my personal favorite—sunglasses.

Fall Florals

Just because fall is on the way doesn’t mean you need to put away the florals just yet. Depending on their colors, floral patterns can and should be worn year-round. I’ve collected a few examples here of how to wear floral patterns right on into the fall.

Flannel IS Fashion!

Flannel shirts for men and women are always on the must-have list for this time of year. When you’re out shopping at Goodwill, take a look and see if you can find one for yourself! I was inspired by the way Nautica paired flannel shirts with a casual tie when I took in their show at New York Fashion Week a few years back. It’s another way to get more use out of our favorite fabric, and bring a new idea for styling.

5 Easy Pieces

There’s a fashion formula that all the stars know, and you can too! I call it their “off-duty” look. I recently saw photos of Julia Roberts in Paris just casually strolling down the street while looking quite stylish. What was she wearing? A variation on a theme of menswear, that’s what. There are just a five elements you’ll need to pull this look together for yourself:
