Now that the kids are back to school, I’m taking an evening to try a new restaurants with friends. I was recently invited to a new 1920s inspired restaurant in Pottstown. Once again, another reason to search the racks at Goodwill for a fitting and appropriate ensemble.
While I obviously did not want to go in costume, I needed some befitting of the Gatsby-themed venue. I know many of my posts contain clothing from Loft, but they consistently offer timeless, quality items that stand up well. This layered ivory, pink and gray confection of a dress from Ann Taylor Loft was light and gauzy for the hot weather we have been having in Pennsylvania this summer.
Keeping the accessories simple was a must with all the detail in the dress. I picked up a simple chain and pearl necklace for only $1.50 from Goodwill store in Ephrata, PA. The gray leather purse from Via Spiga has been featured in a previous blog, but it coordinated with the dress so well that I decided not to shop for anything new. Finally, the nude strappy leather sandals from J Crew were the perfect neutral footwear. These sandals would go with anything from shorts to jeans to dresses because the color is so versatile.
Having fun with a theme party or event is easy and affordable with Goodwill. From Hawaiian shirts for a luau to a country-themed picnic, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for at your neighborhood Goodwill!
