Shopping Trip 1: Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show

I made my first trip to shop for the Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show this past weekend. One of my favorite stores to shop at is the one located in Robinson here in Pittsburgh. It always seems to have fresh new arrivals and current styles. I think I made out pretty well. I only spent about $60 and was able to find a lot of good statement pieces to start with. The things I typically gravitate toward are bright colors, good patterns and classic shapes. I had some ideas about how I would pair the items that I bought so far, but as I look at them new combinations keep happening in my mind.

I hope you can make it to the show to see the final looks. The show takes place at Windows on the River in Cleveland on Thursday, May 7 at 6 p.m.  Tickets for the Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show can be purchased at Living Social for a discounted price of $30.

Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show 2015 Inspiration

I’m excited to share that I’ve been invited to do the Goodwill Good Style Fashion show again this year! So mark your calendars for Thursday, May 7. Every year I try to gather inspiration before I hit the stores. I never have a theme in mind going in. I typically just let the clothing I find inspire me, however, it helps to have some ideas to start with. I get my inspiration everywhere — from magazine spreads to other bloggers. To get a preview of what I have been thinking of see my pinterest boards including styles I loverunway looks, streetstyle and a new thing I am thinking of adding this year: do-it yourself looks.
