Daily Look: Goodwill Hunting
Sweater, Skirt: Banana Republic (via Goodwill) // Shoes, Earrings: Banana Republic // Bracelet: Gift
Last week, my husband and I spent a few days in Chicago. He surprised me by planning everything, including mapping out the best-rated consignment shops in the city. Much to my shock, one of them wasn't really a consignment shop at all--it was a Goodwill near Oprah's Harpo Studios. Well, I admit I was a tad skeptical. I'm no stranger to Goodwill--I spent a good deal of my time and money there during college--but I can't say I remember finding a ton of quality clothes there. Well, folks, this one was different. I ended up finding more good stuff there than at any of the consignment shops I visited. I came away with this sweater and skirt, plus two more tops and a coat, all for $30 and for a good cause. It was pretty magical.
Do you like secondhand stores? Have you ever found anything good at Goodwill?
