some love for goodwill

designer labels are great….but designer prices? they make this dave ramsified little heart beat nearly out of my chest. even though i know i’m paying more for quality, when i shop, it’s with a small budget. it’s so hard to fork over a wad of cash for one item. although i’ll be buying fewer, better quality pieces after this year, i’ll always and forever keep my eye out for great items while thrifting.

this skirt is one of my favorite goodwill finds. vera made it, it’s silk and has pockets. i mean really, what more can you ask for in a skirt?

my other designer thrift steal deal? that michael kors blouse my sweet friend gifted me with. $6.

goodwill, i love you.

    I actually laughed out loud at “this dave ramsified little heart!” That is the truth

      If there was a like button, I’d like your comment. So, instead, this is me saying I like your comment.

    I have a beautiful silvery blue Givenchy silk blouse that I got at Goodwill years ago. It doesn’t fit me right now but I keep it anyway because it’s so lovely.

    Also, my wedding dress actually came from Goodwill and was gifted to me. I was on an extremely tight budget and my dance teacher had this wedding dress that she had found at Goodwill and bought to use as a costume for a waltz. It was beautiful and fit me perfectly so she gave it to me!
