Listen. I’ve been hiding in your overstuffed NYC closet, somewhere between your last season cashmere and those terrible Uggs that you really, really have an issue with cleaning. And frankly, it’s time for me to gently ask you to burn some sage, play some Enya, fling open your windows, shake out a rug and gear up for your closet, and just:
Yes, time to go through and unload things you haven’t worn in over a year, things that don’t fit, and while you’re at it, to stop by Goodwill, donate those goods, and then get some new springtime fashion fixes. Step #1 for 2015: linen all the way!
Linen has been around a lot longer than Ed Hardy and is far more, uh classy and transient when it comes to flexible fashion fixes. It can be a breezy short, an effortless vacation sundress or even better, your inner Miami Vice come to life in the form of a great pantsuit and timeless fedora hat. Perouse through the racks and you’re bound to find something fantastic!
I found a pair for $9.99 at Goodwill’s 72nd St. location. You’ll look hot without trying too hard, and it makes humidity bearable, which given Summer’s coming up, isn’t a bad way to start your subway commute.
So the next time you’re perusing the racks at Goodwill, take a minute and head to the light and breezy linens, you may very well find your inner Italian vacation goddess waiting for you. Think you look better than this lovely lady? Rocking your linen like Jurassic Park style in public? Score an amazing #Goodwill find?! Let me know @planetbrandee! I invite you to join me next month as my travel journeys from runway to highway continue to fuel my search for the best food, fun and fashion the world can offer. Till then, see you on the streets!
