Goodwillde 2015 Runway Show

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world. 

Goodwill Runway Show 2015 This time last Friday I was at the 5th annual Goodwillde 2015 Runway Show that was held at the Sheraton Wilmington South Hotel. It was my 2nd year as a volunteer Stylist and this year’s event was just as exciting and fabulous as ever.  If you had an opportunity to view my previous video you would have seen some of the behind-the-scenes preparations as there is definitely a lot that goes into creating this wonderful fundraiser.


Goodwill Runway Show Models 2015 My models, Barbara, Nicole, Malik, Katrina and Matt were such an awesome group, they each made my participation a fun and enjoyable experience.  Also under the guidance of Colleen and Julie at Goodwillde, we all had such a wonderful time that I am truly looking forward to next year’s Runway Show.

Second Hand Chic Boutique The actual Runway Show was an exceptional event, however, the highlight for most attendees was probably the Second-hand Chic Boutique.  The boutique contained one of a kind, name brand items which were all hand-picked by the stylist and all of the items were available for sale. 

Some of the brands included Ann Taylor Loft, Coach, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and more and there was definitely something for everyone, especially for the die hard thriftinistas!

This video shows just a few highlights from this year’s Runway Show and I hope to see some of you in attendance next year!

Stylin Sunday Roundup

Sunday Stylin Roundup

Hello friends and welcome to another episode of Stylin Sunday Roundup! It’s funny because I always think about a rodeo when I type the title of this post.

The weather ’round here parts has been unpredictable which is evidenced by these three outfits.  The temps have been up and down with damp and dry conditions in between and soon I’ll have to put on some tights.

This first outfit is titled Stripes and Such

Stripes and Such

Stripes and Such is a mix of patterns with the leopard print booties that were purchased from the Deb Shop in the Exton Mall a few years back.  The grey skirt has black side panels so I chose this thrifted top as a complimentary accent.

What do you think? 

I do love my cardigan sweaters especially those that fall below my hips.

Polka Dots and Beads

This is my Polka Dot and Beads outfit.  The sweater is a recent purchase from Burlington Coat Factory, the House of Dereon purse was also purchased from BCF but that was several years ago.  My favorite “Betty Boop” polka dot shoes, beaded necklace and silver accessories completes the look.

Goodwill Goodie

This last outfit is entitled “Goodwill Goodie” and not because of the outfit but because of the leather bag which I purchased for my son for $8.00. He wanted his father’s leather bag but we had donated it to Goodwill last year, so I was on the hunt for another one and this was perfect.

I love thrifting at the Goodwill in Smyrna, DE.  Speaking of Goodwill, I will once again be a Stylist for the 2015 Goodwill Runway Show and I am looking forward to working with the group again.

On this “no-work day casual Friday” I’m wearing leggings under a leopard print dress and leopard print flats from Citi Trends.   You may remember that I wore this same outfit 2 years ago on Thanksgiving, it’s one of my casual favs.  Brass earrings and bangle with a black band watch from Avon completes the look.

So which outfit did you like best?

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and will also have a fantabulous week ahead.

Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!
