WIWW Mix and Match

I decided to go with this seasons' mixed patterns look... I got so many compliments on my outfit that day. I should dress like a grown up more often....
I mixed floral, gingham and tweed....Oh and this is the outfit I was wearing when I inappropriately touched the Rabbi...

Gingham Blouse-Coldwater Creek (Goodwill)
Sweater ? (Goodwill)
Tweed Skirt -part of a suit (Ebay)
Ballet Slipper Pumps (Goodwill)

Here is a lesson for you.....What do JCrew and Old Navy have in common? Well their sweaters are made in the exact same place....and then they both end up in Goodwill where I bought them both for $3.99 each.
Beaded Sweater with ribbon detail JCrew (via Goodwill)
White T-Shirt Target
Denim Cargo pant-Target
Flats Target (Goodwill New with Tags)

I wore this outfit a week or so ago.
This is the EXACT sweater in a different color, both sweaters say 100% Cotton, Made in Hong Kong. Someone paid the JCrew price, the other person paid the reasonable Old Navy price, but I paid the Goodwill price of $3.99.....I think I came out ahead!
I love brand names just like everyone else....but the more I shop at Goodwill the more I realize that most of the clothing is the same with a different label sewn in them.....something to think about!

  12. Great style as usual!

    I also appreciate your comment that even high-end brands come from the same places as do the lower-end brands. I am thrilled when I come across a pair of leather shoes or a belt that are NOT made in China these days. Goodwill is a great place to find quality stuff, and cool vintage clothes are often of fantastic quality! Fits my motto: Better for Less!

  20. I'm inspired! A new Goodwill opened up near me not long ago and I want to go! (Preferably without four kids in tow... so we'll see how this works out.) You scored some cute stuff!

    And I'm so with you about the name brands - I think a lot of the time you're paying for the name because it's almost identical. I'm all for saving some money and having the freedom to change my mind and my styles more often!

  21. Okay, I just read more of your blog. First of all, I didn't realize when I first read the wiww post that you are the Goodwill Queen. WOW! Is finding and blogging about your Goodwill finds you job? How awesome is that?! Secondly, I'm in Colorado! I didn't see the news segment, but that is so fun! I'm up in Erie, and the new store I was talking about is the one in Lafayette. I haven't been yet, but a friend found some a-ma-zing boots there. I'm so glad I found your blog. Now I've got the bug! Does Goodwill provide childcare to its shoppers? (Totally kidding.)
