As a self-proclaimed sneakerhead, I have found great sneakers at Goodwill at great prices with brands such as Nike, Puma, and Adidas. Who would have thought a pair of Air Jordans 11s would be sitting in the case in great condition?
As much as I love jackets, I also love camouflage items. I consider the pattern and fabric neutral and will rock it with everything from denim to leather to sequins. At one time, I owned over 15 authentic camo jackets that I have purchased over the years. However, this find was special.
I have a list of dream cookware that I would love to make part of my kitchen collection, including a Le Creuset Dutch oven. A few months ago, while browsing the kitchenware aisle of Goodwill, a cobalt blue item caught my attention. As I lifted it, I discovered it was indeed a Le Creuset Dutch oven! However, it has been a little too well-seasoned on the bottom of the pot. Even though it was a bit beat up, I couldn’t leave it at the store for $3.99! A similar Dutch oven averages around $400.00 brand new and will last you a lifetime.
Of course, I knew I had to participate because it was right up my alley. The themes included: Favorite 90’s TV Show, Favorite Music Icon, Magazine Ad, and Brand Freestyle. The rules were that 50% of the outfit had to be thrifted and you had to post a picture of yourself and inspiration for each challenge. The easiest part was making sure half of my outfit is thrifted because around 85% of my wardrobe is secondhand. Therefore, I challenged myself to use existing items from my closet for each challenge rather than taking trips to Goodwill.
