Winter Wardrobe Wonderland

Can you believe it's winter already?  Before you get caught up in a whirlwind of holiday parties, shopping and volunteering, I wanted to give you a rundown of winter trends to keep your stylish eye on during your next trip to Goodwill.

NecklaceEmbellishments: Embellishments of all shapes and sizes - but especially sequins - have found their way into everyday wear.  Find a sequined skirt or an appliqué sweater to add a little glitz and glamour into your wardrobe.

Collar necklaces: Beautiful necklaces that frame your neck and collarbone are so flattering for every body type and with whatever outfit you're wearing.  Make yours extra special with a vintage score from Goodwill!

DressThe holiday dress: Every girl needs a holiday dress or two in their wardrobe.  Look for ones that fall above your knee in burgundy, black, forest green, gold or royal blue, and spruce it up with a collar necklace for your next soirée.

Velvet: This fabric always seems to make a comeback during the holiday season.  Pair a velvet skirt with your favorite sweater and you're set for your next holiday shindig!

Textured denim: Waxed, printed, bleached or other textured denim is all the rage right now.  Procure a thrifted pair of Levi's from Goodwill and turn them into a DIY project to make textured jeans that are all your own.

ScarvesFun accessories: Cable-knit mittens, wool scarves, pom-pom beanies, oh my!  Layer up and stay warm with new and thrifted accessories found at Goodwill.

Oversized sweaters: Big, comfy sweaters are probably my favorite thing to shop for at Goodwill.  There are always so many good finds in so many different colors, textures and sizes.  Consider this your Thanksgiving dinner outfit when paired with your favorite leggings or pants!

Happy holidays!

I heard a rumor that the leftovers from the Glitter Sale will be sold 50% off on Black Friday.
Is there any truth to that rumor?
If not, what does happen to the leftovers from the Glitter Sale? Are they saved for next year's Glitter Sale?

Hi Debra! The leftovers from the Glitter Sale are distributed to our other stores, excluding the two outlets. Some pieces are already in stores now! All colored tags will be 50% off on Black Friday, including Glitter Sale tags (grey) and excluding white and yellow tags.
