What do Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, and Prada All Have in Common? Goodwill.

Shop Goodwill Online is like a box of chocolates…

…you never know what you’re gonna get.

Shop Goodwill allows you to scroll through an immense selection of vintage pieces. Your eyes may widen when you come across a designer item and then shortly scrunch up when you glance at the surprisingly low starting price. A recent trip to Goodwill NYNJ’s warehouse in Astoria proved that we have the tools to help you assemble a good look for a great deal. All you have to do is find them.

This week I decided to finally transition my wardrobe from Winter to Spring. With the sun gleaming, and the weather getting a bit more warmer, I felt as though it was definitely time. My transition pretty much included; gathering old sweaters & coats, purchasing new pairs of jeans, and purchasing new shirts. I am avid supporter of the Goodwill, so all of those winter pieces were donated to them with no hesitation. 

If You Give a Girl a Men’s Shirt…

By Goodwill NYNJ, goodwillnynj.org

Goodwill is no stranger to Do-It-Yourself fashion. We ❤️  a good DIY. Our stores are a treasure trove of goodies for those who like to get their hands messy with threads, scissors and glue.

This past month, students from Parsons School of Design reconstructed an array of men’s shirts into high fashion women’s attire. For their thesis project, the students from Parsons focused on the “anonymous women” behind the seams and design of men’s wear clothing, Below you will find photos taken in the warehouse at Goodwill NYNJ headquarters.

Silk Transition w/@StylingStingy

By Al Green, stylingstingy.com

In my last post, I presented you guys with a lovely satin piece that I found at my local Goodwill. This go around, I found a silk two piece that I’m completely in love with! I feel as though two pieces are my go-to look, mainly because you have a complete outfit in a matter of seconds! You have a top and you also have a bottom, so there’s no need to look for anything else.

Prom Looks Pt. 3 w/ @StylingStingy

By Al Green, stylingstingy.com

Once finding a prom date is off of the list, finding the right attire to wear is the next big step. Some guys choose their tuxedos a week before. But, girls are usually prepared month and months ahead. Constantly looking in magazines for the next big dress to buy, or a design to tell their designer. Which, by the way, could cost fortunes. This is why I am here today. To show female readers a fashionable alternative, that will also save them big bucks.
