Goodwill FInds and Fashion Shows! + Fashion Flash Monday!!

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend!  We just returned from a quick getaway and I will have some fun pictures of the trip later in the week!

Before I left, I stopped by GOODWILL just to check things out.  I have discovered if I go expecting nothing…I usually find great treasures.  On the other hand, if I go with a list of needs or desires in mind, I usually walk out empty handed because I did not find them.  So, I stopped just to see what was there….and found this beautiful pink silk jacket!  

The first thing I did was cut out the shoulder pads.  Then, get it cleaned, of course.

I added a brown tank, my leopard flats, and a necklace to wear with my jeans.

I really like it…and the unique touch it gives to the jeans.

This is part of another set I am breaking up…but the pencil skirt in the same print is one I think I will wear.  It would go with a jacket or cardigan quite nicely…I might even wear it with a denim jacket or in the winter, a velvet one.

Now, San Antonio, I have a big announcement!!
On June 28, I am part of a group staging a fashion show at the GOODWILL location at Bulverde Road and Highway 1604!! There will be a section of the show for ladies of a certain age!  I will also be on KENS 5, the Saturday morning news show, this upcoming Saturday to talk about the fashion show!!
So much fun, I hope you will come and join us on the 28th!  More information to follow!

  1. That jacket is AMAZING!! Love how you styled it. That's a good point about just going in to have a look around, more of a treasure hunt than if you went to a store where you knew they had items on your list. Goodwill and consignment stores are a whole different shopping experience! Karen

  2. What a great article, Pam! So many people don't realize the quality goods one can find at their thrift stores. My husband was once out of town and unexpectedly needed an entire suit… Hundreds of miles away from home and only hours notice, he paid a visit to a local shop where he found everything he needed, and it didn't break the bank!

    Thanks for sharing this type of resource for your readers!! Excellent info. 🙂

  3. Gorgeous jacket – looks beautiful on you! Thanks for the link for Fab Over Forty – I will definitely check them out.

  4. The silk jacket is a beautiful find, and yes, looks great with jeans and your smile. Congratulations on the Goodwill Fashion Show and your mission to spread the word that style can be affordable and sustainable.

  5. What a pretty pink blazer! Love that you paired it with leopard flats. Congrats on the fashion show, too!

  6. The jacket is very pretty and certainly was a great find. Congratulations on the fashion show and it certainly sounds like a fun event

  7. I love goodwill! My family and I always find great clothes, books toy she use kitchenware and HomeGoods there at great prices. My question is is there still room for vendors? If so whom should I call to find out more information. Thank you in advance Erica Campos Rodriguez
