Goodwill SA: Helping Me Play Hostess


Recently, I confessed my desire for a long kimono just for the purpose of entertaining at home...and, of course, GOODWILL SA filled my request...for there I find the best thrift shopping.

I was looking for something that was reminescent of Meryl Streep's kimono in It's Complicated.  I think this is so much fun for an evening in...comfortable and stylish.
I love going to Goodwill with a wardrobe mission...it makes the treasure hunting so much fun.  I do not know what this garment was originally designed for...but for me, it was what I had in mind, and at $3.99...you just cannot beat it.
 This will make for a special evening! Goodwill SA helps our community so much...giving back and providing several locations with shopping adventures!  I found my kimono at Loop 1604 and Bulverde Road.  It's a keeper!

Today, I am linking up with....VISIBLE MONDAY...and SHOE AND TELL...and MONDAY MINGLE


Remember, today is 
This week's hostess is the wonderful Josephine from Chic At Any Age.  POST IS UP READ FASHION FLASH HERE!

It's Monday so
Keep Smiling!

    1. I do feel elegant in it. Much more optimistic than walking around the house in a dirty tee shirt and shorts!

  7. Cute outfit. And I haven't seen "It's Complicated." It looks good. I need to rent that (and find my own type of kimono-esque piece).

  9. Well done! Goodwill is the absolute BEST. I have so many things from there, and I miss it a lot, living over here in the UK now. When I go back home, I spend HOURS in the local one...no item gets left un-looked-at!

  11. I love wardrobe missions, too, and have given myself many challenges. However, I've given up on the kimono. Yours looks extremely luxurious (great find) but I've finally decided they just don't work for me. I'll continue to enjoy them from afar. Like yours!!!
