You’ve got the turkey in the oven, the pie on the windowsill, the cranberry sauce in the can – what else is there? Your holiday outfit! Why not wear a Goodwill Gem today in honor of all the good your support has allowed our programs to do?
We’re thankful for a style that helps you help 14,000 people find employment in Greater NY & Northern NJ just last year alone. GoodwillNyNj’s Lauren assembles her holiday best full of Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good flair with this week’s Goodwill Gem column…
Feel like a queen at your festive Thanksgiving feast! With so many fêtes coming up on your winter social calendar, it’s imperative to have some great, go-to accessories you can throw on over any of your favorite sweaters, blouses or party dresses for an instant dose of bling – just the thing to get you sparkling for any holiday occasion.
And this week’s Goodwill find is just that kind of a piece. The thick gold link chain is enough to draw attention to your fabulous ensembles all on its own, but the eye-catching black oval – also encompassed in gold – that serves as this necklace’s focal point is truly spectacular. Deep black and brilliant gold contrast beautifully with one another, making this simple stunner the kind of necklace any stylish, thrifty girl would want to snap up in a second.
You could pair this versatile piece with dressy numbers, but also with more casual outfits. For a party requiring a fancier frock though, this vivid green cocktail dress below is flirty, feminine, and just the right hue for the season, making it the perfect partner for this week’s gem. The rich, vibrant color is not only holiday party appropriate, it also allows this black and gold gem to stand out, not fighting with its sparkle as an equally shiny or busily patterned top might do, but still provides enough contrast to create a brilliant backdrop for this beautiful necklace.
With a pair of luxurious-looking metallic heels – and perhaps some nude tights and a light sweater, shrug or blazer to ward off the winter chill, you’re ready for this sensational season, with plenty of cash left over for gift shopping!
