The start of fall is the perfect time to reassess the state of your wardrobe – and our Lauren Haslett is doing just that. This week she scouts around her local Goodwill for something to bring a little pep into her closet – a certain peppy preppy something to rev up her look for the fall. Take a look at this week’s Goodwill Gem: the technicolor belt.
With summer drawing to a close, it’s about time to pack away a few things you won’t wear through the rest of the year and to pull out your light sweaters and layers. But you don’t have to rely 100% on last year’s picks.
Back to School! Are you set? This Eight West video features our friends at the Goodwill in Michigan, but the finds they show off could come from any Goodwill store.
School supplies, backpacks, like-new clothes perfect for school – before you shop major retail for these items, check your local Goodwill. You could easily find the same thing for much, much less. Click right here or on the photo below to see the full video segment.
Enjoy the weekend, New York and New Jersey, and stay safe.
Hear that? It’s the sweet sound of Fall Fashion. This week, our Emme gives in to the siren song of cooler breezes and colored leaves and sets her sights on a Goodwill Essential perfect for autumn (and tailor-made to guarantee a low cost per wear this season): the blazer.
Summer’s making its exit, but that’s no reason style has to do the same. The blazer is one of my favorite no-fail go-to’s when the weather cools down – so thank goodness that Goodwill is full of fantastic options to choose from!
Back to school, back to work – Fall’s beautiful, but busy! It’s still gorgeous enough to walk (or run?) wherever you’re headed – but your shoes better be up to the task. Our Lauren Haslett returns to her local Goodwill looking for heels ready for both business and pleasure. Take a look at this week’s Goodwill Gem: the high-heeled mini-bootie.
It may still seem too early to be so into boots, but with cooler weather already here (at least intermittently), I can’t help but keep my eyes peeled for fall-appropriate footwear. And how could I pass up these fabulous black booties?
Our Attended Donation Center is officially open in Eastchester, NY!
Not only will the center (located at 19 Mill Road, Eastchester, NY 10709) provide jobs, it will make donating to Goodwill easier than ever!
The center will be staffed 7 days a week from 9am-6pm with three Goodwill employees ready to accept donations of clothing, electronics, small furniture, books, records, CDs, DVDs, and other household items from the public. These items will be sold in Goodwill stores to help support Goodwill’s mission of finding jobs for individuals facing barriers to employment.
In case you’d like to shop along with donate, we’ve got four Goodwill stores in Westchester County: the New Rochelle Goodwill in the ShopRite Plaza at 8 Joyce Rd in New Rochelle; the Elmsford Goodwill at 380 North Saw Mill River Road in Elmsford; The Baldwin Place Goodwill in Somers Commons Center at 80 Route 6 in Baldwin Place; and the Croton-on-Hudson Goodwill at 440 South Riverside Avenue in Croton-on-Hudson. Find the nearest store to you at the Goodwill website.
Do you know what your clothing’s really worth? We’re not talking about the price – we’re talking about the “cost per wear.” A Good Look’s Emme Bonilla explains how a new calculation can really clear up your wardrobe:
Maybe some of you have heard about the cost per wear formula. If you haven’t, it goes a little like this:
Cost of item / number of times worn = cost per wear
What it boils down to is the more often you wear a shirt the more you are getting out of its value. And when you buy your clothes at Goodwill, you definitely optimize your style. Curious why? Keep reading…
Last week we showed off some of our new fav blogs that we discovered in our comments here, on our Facebook and via Twitter. This week, we’ve got a new gem to add to the list: the young & promising fashion blog The Thrifted.
Heading back to school – or just remembering the days? Either way, baby needs a new pair of shoes! This week’s Goodwill Gems has our Lauren Haslett skipping to Goodwill for a pair of kicks able to kick the end of summer up a notch, while still holding their own as the Fall chill sets in. This week’s Gem: high-heeled peep-toed leather clogs.
Are you ready to say farewell to summer? Well, me neither. But the time when we’re going to have to adjust to idea is drawing ever nearer. And to help ease your goodbye blues, I’ve found another fabulous Goodwill piece to get you through the sometimes difficult transition from beach weather and bikini-clad, makeup-free days to a more covered up, cold weather cool.
