Goodwill Hunting: A Fall Trend...Plaid!


Fashion bloggers of all ages have been showing off their "mad-for-plaid-finds."  As soon as I saw this return as a trend, I immediately thought, "I bet I can find it at GOODWILL ."  And, I did! (specifically, the location at Bitters Road and Hwy 281)



This cute little jacket is like new and I will have some kind of fun with it! 

Goodwill is the perfect place to head for a trend-treasure-hunt.  I do this often...rather than spend big bucks on something new which will only be around for a short time.





For Fall 2014, plaid is in.  If you want to participate for just a sliver of your shopping pie...then head on out to GOODWILL for a hunt.  The hunt is the biggest part of the fun!

Have a fabulous, plaid Wednesday!

(I think it needs a necklace...what do you think?...I should have looked at the necklaces in the Goodwill Jewelry Counters!)

  1. This looks like an outfit I would wear! Found a jacket like this at Goodwill, but different color! Wish mine was the red plaid, love red. I have all the other pieces! I find all my trends at Goodwill! If I didn't my clothes budget would be astronomical! I love a new outfit, and often!

  3. What a great look! Since plaid is a trend, I will be searching for a bargain too! I don't think this needs a necklace, the jacket is interesting on its own. I like how you styled it with the denim skirt and tights - you look thin! I will try Goodwill in my area to see if I can find a cool plaid like this! Karen

  4. Great idea! But, what I noticed first was how much thinner your face is - keep up the good work - you look wonderful!

  5. Stopping by from Women of Midlife! I love a good thrift find. Makes me feel like I got away with something!

  6. You hit the jackpot! Plaid is now a fall staple. You'll wear it for many autumn's to come.

  7. What a great find! I shop almost exclusively at Good Will. I'm glad that you had a positive experience. I like the "green" aspect of recycling through Good Will as well as the thrill of the hunt and the money saving angle. I hope you find a necklace that fits the vision you have for accessorizing your outfit.

  10. I have mentioned it before but I have to repeat myself: I am so jealous about your Goodwill stores and wish we had something similar here!
    Plaid is definitely a huge trend and I have just ordered 2 plaid blouses. Perfect mix with your denim skirt, Pam and a great look!

  14. I don't know. I love plaid (and therefore also your jacket), but whenever I buy it, I hardly wear it. So there is something about it, that is holding me back. No idea what it is.
