Fall 16 Trend: Bomber Jackets

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

The first day of fall completely crept up on me. Or more importantly the last day of summer slipped right through my fingers! I would have going swimming one more time in my best friend's rooftop pool, I would have picked up crabs from the wharf, I would have enjoyed a few more meals alfresco. Where did the summer go?

Pretty soon we'll be all bundled up and too frostbitten to enjoy all the city has to offer. But until then I'll try to make the most of Fall. My favorite trends for Fall 2016 are bomber jackets (especially from the men's department), velvet shoes and blazers and high-low (mullet) hemmed jeans. Are you looking forward to Fall fashion?

My Goodwill Find

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

Remember when I said I'd share the item I picked up at the Goodwill Pop-Up shop? Well here it is. From the Spicy Candy DC in-store boutique I found this silk shirtdress from Daffy's (I used to shop at the one in Philly) with the original tags still on it. I paid about $8 for it secondhand from Goodwill. I've already strolled through the canals of Georgetown wearing #mygoodwillfind and I can't wait to style it with heels for brunch! 

Did you score something awesome at the Pop-Up or from Goodwill recently? Let me know in the comments and tag #mygoodwillfind on social media.

WIWT3 x Goodwill

I want to take the time to say thank you so much to everyone that supported the WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! (#WIWT3) curated boutique at the annual Goodwill Pop-Up shop and trunk show. Some of you shopped til you dropped and scored the pieces I pulled for the event. Others cheered me on at the VIP cocktail party celebrating the curators. And so many of you sent me words of  encouragement when I posted about the event on social media.

Having the opportunity to work with Goodwill on this project was a full-circle moment for me. I’ve been covering the Goodwill Greater Washington fashion events on WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! for sometime now.

Below are a few photos of the other curators and a sneak peek of the item I purchased from the pop-up shop. A full outfit post on that piece is coming soon!

Here's a look at the mannequin I styled for the #WIWT3 x Goodwill boutique
