Fashionistas, I cannot believe it is already over. This year’s Summer Trunk Show at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery came and went before I even knew it – mainly because it was extraordinarily fun and a 100% success.
Last Wednesday through Friday DC Goodwill celebrated another trunk show. Filled with gems galore, the event was curated by DC’s very own unique and notable fashion bloggers including Wardrobe Oxygen, What I Wore: Tip to Toe, Heart. Print. Style., Spicy Candy DC, Got it at Goodwill and Modage Style.
The event kicked off with flying colors on Wednesday with an exclusive VIP blogger and friends of Goodwill show, hosted by the DC Goodwill Young Professionals Council. To say the least, I haven’t had this much fun all summer! I had a splendid time kicking it with my fellow bloggers, meeting new Goodwill fashion lovers, and shopping until I dropped.
While this particular post doesn’t showcase my particular finds, I wanted to give y’all a glimpse of the festivities – as if you had attended yourselves! Some of these pictures are my own, while others were pulled from various blogs and websites.
First off, the neighborhood where the show was held continues to prove to be a great location. It was right in the heart of Chinatown, easily accessible by metro.
At the event, I rocked a Goodwill look from head-to-toe, with my 70’s vintage dress and purse coming from the Gaithersburg location, shoes from Herndon, and a J Crew necklace from Clinton. Altogether, my outfit was under $30, no joke! 🙂
Not only did Goodwill fans and patrons attend the event, but some of my Goodwill-loving friends did too! I’m so glad they came to support. They also rocked some Goodwill threads as well.
Brea of What I Wore: Tip to Toe had some of her friends come out too!
I finally got to meet Lerkia of Modage Style’s daughter too! Like fashionista mother, like fashionista daughter.
Back to the setting details of the event. Over 100 people were in attendance, with many carrying armfuls of Goodwill finds.
Check out all the shoes we had to offer!
At the show, each blogger curated their own racks of clothing – the below is mine! It was filled with lots of active wear, vintage, and designer labels.
Tim Kime, a local artist and DIY expert furnished the event with many of his furniture creations – seen below. I’m still regretting that I didn’t pick up some of his masterpieces! I wish I had taken Zipcar to the show.
Karen, our former DCGF, even found some items from my rack. This peach blazer in this pic was one of my curated items. 🙂

Some of Goodwill’s other blogger friends came to support the organization and the event as well, such as DC Celine, DC Style Factory, and Chic Stripes. In fact, Chic Stripes came all the way from Richmond to see us!
As you can see here, DC Celine (in red), is trying on a vintage shirt from the Modage Style rack.
During the event, it was absolutely necessary that all of us bloggers take a group photo together. We’re all so stylish
And how can I not feature this mandatory Ellen/Awards-show-style blogger selfie.
