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.

Discovering Day & Dusk: This Week on Inside the Prop Closet

A few days ago, I started experimenting with painting rocks that I found outside. It’s just a little color blocking with acrylic paint and painter’s tape, but I love the results. Though an incredibly simple concept, there’s a poem in the process somewhere – in Mother Nature being dipped in black. I don’t have the words just yet. Maybe they’ll come later. Or maybe they’ll be given to someone else. Maybe to you?

Guest Blogger Nicole: Menswear – Create the Perfect Holiday Outfit for Less!

Mens Fashion CollageThe holiday season is in full swing and you may already be spending a ton of money on gifts and now you need something nice to wear for holiday get together’s and parties. Luckily, Goodwill is chock full of awesome finds that won’t cause you to break the bank!

A great sweater is the quintessential holiday must have. A cardigan sweater allows you to layer, which is perfect during the winter. Goodwill has sweaters for a steal at $9.99!

When you need a new pair of dress pants Goodwill should be your first stop. Many of their stores have a very large selection of designer bottoms starting for as low as $7.99!

Collared Shirts
The collared shirt is a wardrobe staple and if you shop around you can score amazing designer tops at a fraction of the cost. I’ve stumbled upon Burberry, Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole and Brooks Brothers tops while shopping at Goodwill!

Shopping for shoes at Goodwill can be hit or miss due to size availability, but you never know what you may find. On my most recent visit I saw a pair of Italian made genuine leather dress shoes for $19.99!

So before you reach into the back of your closet for that same old red sweater you have been wearing for the past 3 Christmas holidays head on over to your local Goodwill to see what you find!

Happy Holidays!

Goodwill Gems: Tuxedo Heels

Boys may be boys, but girls can always steal their fashion. This week Lauren headed to Goodwill on the look-out for menswear-inspired pieces fit for a lady. Of course, this gal found her thriftastic, budget-loving Goodwill Gem: a pair of gorgeous black-and-white Tuxedo Heels.

Pretty yet polished, these shiny patent leather heels are the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe, whether you’re headed to the boardroom, the brunch table, the bar, or anywhere in between.

Girls can get fashion inspiration from all sorts of places – even from men. Though spring is usually a time for flirty frocks in technicolor brights and pretty pastels, adding a piece or two with a masculine edge can really bring a bit of proper style to a city girl’s warm weather wardrobe.
