Hello, fashion-forward friends!
I’m back with another week of Goodwill Gems and cannot WAIT to share what I’ve found this week! While thrifting at GoodwillNYNJ’s Chelsea location in Manhattan, I was lucky enough to stumble across row after row (after row!) of completely fabulous shoes.
There were tons of cute heels, in all colors of the rainbow, and most in pretty mint condition, so it was really hard for me to select just one pair.
But of course, I had to pick one to post about (at least for this week’s blog update). And as much I love all that vibrant, happy color you see in the photo above, in true Goodwill Gem fashion, I went for something pretty but also practical, that I knew I would wear again and again and again!
These Kenneth Cole Reaction heels have slight platform for comfort and a super chic look, thanks to the skinny heels and understated linen upper. The neutral fabric that makes up most of this shoe isn’t as bright or wonderfully loud as the other colorful heels I spotted during my thrifting trip, but this is the kind of shoe that will go with absolutely everything in your spring and summer wardrobes! Plus, it was in almost perfect condition and looked like it had hardly been worn at all — serious Gem alert!
So, how to style this too-cute shoe? EASY. You could pair these babies with everything from fancy cocktail dresses to casual summer sundresses to a classic jeans-and-white-tee-shirt look. They’re incredibly versatile, which is what makes them such an insane bargain and lucky find! But here, I’ve chosen to pair these pretty heels with a bright yellow, breezy summer skirt (also found at Goodwill!) and a couple of layered gray and white tanks. Easy, cool, comfy and still totally cute, and adding my newly found heels will take this otherwise casual look up to a slightly more polished level.
