Slamming Cute Fashion

Slamming Cute Outfit

I am often asked where I get my clothes, accessories and various household and garden goodies.  I answer, “My favorite store – Goodwill!”  On a recent trip, this bold Black and White Polka-Dot Skirt called out to me from the hundreds lined up on the wall.  I love Polka-Dots – always have because they make me smile.  Come on, tell me that you’re not smiling now.  The dots remind me happy times in my life, going back to childhood Easter dresses and summer shorts.

The bold print on this classic pencil style Anne Klein Skirt was definitely a keeper for me.  Priced at $2.99, it was beyond a deal . . . it was a steal.  It fit me perfectly and I decided to shop my closet to complete the look.  Paired with a Cashmere Sweater, Crinkled Top, Polka Dot Studded Belt along with black tights and pumps and I have an outfit that is Slamming Cute!

Here’s some tips on Thrift shopping for clothes and accessories: 1) Know your body type and size and what looks attractive on you.  2) Is there a particular color, style or cut that makes you feel amazing or gets lots of compliments and extra admiring looks?  Keep those in mind as you scan the racks for those standout pieces.  3) But, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and go for an unusual color, print or style.  It may just be the thing to spice up your wardrobe with a bit of extra pizazz! 4) Have a general idea of what’s already in your closet and what pieces will be great to update it or simply add a touch of a new trend – at a fraction of the cost!  5) Shop your closet to help complete an outfit, mix and matching until you get that marvelous, “alrighty now” look.  6) Hang or arrange your clothes in the closet with like items together, by color on appropriate hangers or closet accessories to make shopping, dressing and staying organized so much easier.  Mom was right, a place for everything and everything in it’s place!

It’s wonderful update your wardrobe, support your local community and take care of our environment by shopping at Goodwill or other Thrift Shops.  What’s your favorite find at stores such as this?
