Tomboy Chic Inspired

It’s Saturday!  Want to be relaxed, but still turn heads while running errands?  If so, we are still crushing over the tomboy chic inspired trend. This style allows you the versatility of mixing and matching relaxed, loose-fitting pieces with classic girly frocks.  The reason we love this style so much is because it’s super comfortable and chic.  This trend can be pulled off without looking as if you are trying too hard.  Also, as a bonus,  you more than likely already have these items in your closet.  A relaxed button-up paired with ripped jeans, a vintage hat, tailored blazer, and heels will seal the deal!

$25 Fashion Challenge | Goodwill Accessory Hunting

I had the pleasure of visiting my local Goodwill, located in Owings Mills, Maryland last week, and I hit the baubles jackpot!  Prior to entering the store, I gave myself a budget of $25 {which I could not exceed} and scribbled an informal “wish list” of things I wanted to find.  I’m always on the prowl for vintage inspired clutch bags, sunglasses and decorative scarves.

As you know, accessories are a girl’s best friend and will spruce up an outfit effortlessly.  The quality of my finds are investment piece worthy and several are marked, which is a bonus.   I live for fabulous finds, and if I had to sum up my accessory haul in two words, it would be “Timeless Sophisticate.”

On August 16, 2014, I am partnering with Goodwill of Greater Washington to host DC’s first-ever Goodwill Summer Shopping Bus Tour!  We are so excited to visit five of their retail stores located in the Northern Virginia area.  Our guests will be presented with similar challenges that hopefully will promote a pinch of frugal fashion competition.

Check out my newly acquired finds that were purchased for less than $25.  I’m a firm believer that you do not have to break the bank to look amazing.

Clutch Love

Clutch Love.  I absolutely adore clutch purses. Suitable for work and play. I find the most amazing bags while thrifting and they definitely promote conversation while out on the town. A clutch that has history, a few imperfections, character and made of quality leather and/or material catches my eye immediately while visiting any consignment, thrift or vintage boutique.

Our Current Obsession | Vintage Scarves

Our current obsession today is vintage scarves! Want a quick and easy way to jazz up an outfit or to rock on bad hair days, we suggest you invest in unique scarves.  Rumor has it that one of the tour stops has unique scarves and hats.  Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O always looked so stylish in their headscarves.

Monday’s Style Tour Thrift Tip

Upon arrival at the first stop on the MODAGE Style | Goodwill Summer Shopping Tour, I suggest checking out the accessories.  You will find vintage baubles, sunnies, brooches and other unique statement pieces for a fraction of the price.  Also, by snagging your accessories first, you are able to pair key pieces easier when attempting to create an entire look.
