Fashionistas, September came and went. Can you believe it’s now almost November?

 Filled with Meetups and fashion events, this past September has been a truly great one at Goodwill.

Here are five of my most favorite finds under $5:

A picture of a woman in front of a red painted brick wall. The woman is the DC Goodwill Fashionista. She has short, brown hair and is wearing a 60's. mod, patterned, mini dress. The dress is yellow, purple, pink, and white and she has a headband that has the same pattern and colors. She is wearing white tennis shoes, pink sunglasses, an assortment of gold jewelry, and has a brown purse.

1.) What I Wore to Afropunk: Vintage Micro-Mini

In late August/early September, I attended Brooklyn’s Afropunk Festival and rocked this vintage beauty to show off some mad Goodwill style. I picked up this micro-mini from the Gaithersburg location on a sale day – that’s why it came out to under $5. It was easy to wear because it’s light on packing while still looking chic and cool in the warm weather

A picture of the DC Goodwill Fashionista. She is taking a top down selfie and you can see her mouth and chin and the whole front of her body. She is wearing a black and white striped boatneck shirt, a red skirt, and a pair of leopard print shoes. She is standing on a brick sidewalk with some grass and a fence in the background

2.) Red Asos Skirt

I found this red mini skirt by Asos at Goodwill for about $3! I love the vintage mod cut of the bottom and thought it would go well with this classically cut striped top. 

A picture of a woman with short dark hair sitting outside on a patio on a seat with pink coushions. She is wearing a sheer long-sleeved top, colored with navy blue and taupe polka dots, by Italian high-end designer, Fuzzi and a vintage houndstooth black and white skirt,

3.) A sheer polka-dotted top by an Italian designer Fuzzi

During a sale, I found this luxe sheer long-sleeved top, colored with navy blue and taupe polka dots, by Italian high-end designer, Fuzzi. Although this gem has a unique cut and print, I found I can match it easily with a lot of clothing items due to the neutral color palette. Originally, a top like this would retail for $150+ at high-end retailers.

A picture of an orange candle in a glass, cylinder container. On the front there is a label saying Yankee Candle with a picture of pumpkins and the words "Spiced Pumpkin" on it.

4.) Pumpkin Spice Yankee Candle

Who doesn’t love a quality Yankee Candle? This popular candle brand is loved by many and decorates quite a few homes throughout the DC area. I found this perfect-for-fall Spiced Pumpkin Yankee Candle for $4.99 earlier this year. I can’t wait to burn it this month. Everything and anything PSL is good by me!

A necklace with multiple rows of cream rine stones with a gold chain. It is on top of a scarf that you can see a yellow link chain and blue link chain painted on it

5.) Amrita Singh Necklace

I often spot pieces by the known jewelry designer Amrita Singh at Goodwills across the area. In fact, I just scored one yesterday! At one location, I picked up this conversation-starter for under $5. I’ve worn it with bright colors as well as neutrals – its cream color makes it a versatile item that can be styled in multiple ways.

Which 5 under $5 September find showcased today is your favorite?
