Working on the Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show inspires me every year. After shopping for the show, I always come away realizing how much I could be saving on clothing by shopping at Goodwill. You may not always get exactly what you want, but if you put in the time and have a little patience you can find some real gems in the racks of your local Goodwill. You have to be willing to see the potential in something.
This sweater I am wearing was found while shopping for the show one year. It's a size large from J.Crew. Now normally I would not fit into a size large, but I couldn't help but notice that it looked a little small so I tried it on. It fit great. Clearly someone had washed the sweater and shrunk it, which is why it was sitting at a Goodwill. Besides the fact that the sweater is in great condition and was very inexpensive, it feels like I have something very unique in my closet. It's something I wear all the time.
Do you shop at Goodwill? If so, what was your best find?
