An artisan is defined as someone who does skilled work. Sometimes when I’m shopping at Goodwill, I find pieces that reflect that quality, handcrafted, well-made aesthetic. Take, for example, the print and details of these two designer dresses that I found recently.
Ask yourself when looking at an item you’re interested in, does it have quality details? Such as working buttons, high-end fabric and, of course, superlative design. The two dresses here are great illustrations of these rules. The prints are subtle and done in neutral colors, so they’d be perfect for the summer season without being too vibrant. They’re both done in breezy fabrics. One is a slip-style dress with a balloon hem and pleating at the bodice, and the other is a tunic style, with drawstring blouson waistline, and an interesting way of buttoning on the placket front to wear it different ways.
Each of these dresses was just $5.99! Even though the cost is low in our stores, buying items of high quality is the best way to use all the resources that Goodwill has to offer to the discriminating shopper!
