A Little Voodoo Magic

What do you do when you don’t know what to be for Halloween? If you’re like me, you go to Goodwill! I never fail to find inspiration — and fantastic savings — while I’m there!

Take this Halloween for example. My husband and I had decided what we thought we wanted to be: I would be Cleopatra and he would be Marc Anthony. But when we got to Goodwill, other ideas began to surface. It all began when he spotted a new voodoo priest hat. Yes, I said new! Did you know Goodwill has TONS of news items for sale, especially in their Planet Halloween section? Now you do! Insider tip: All Halloween new items are now ON SALE! Go HERE for more info. 

That super cool hat inspired him to look for a dark suit to complete his voodoo priest outfit, and I went searching online for ideas. Which is where I got the idea to be a voodoo doll, sort of like this:

 

I went on the hunt for a simple dress that could be used as the basis for this voodoo doll look. Easy peasy. I quickly found a neutral t-shirt dress perfect for tearing up, and well under $10! I found a red donated children’s t-shirt to rip up for my heart and patches. Next, I went hunting for a little doll I could hold, and I could hardly believe it when I found the perfect one. Missing a leg, but that’s all part of the voodoo fun! This was my inspiration for my own doll to hold:

My husband, meanwhile, was using this scary dude as his inspiration:

He ended up finding a great sport coat and a sort of metallic shirt, along with lots of new accessories (from Goodwill!) to complete the look.

This is our final look, and I think WE NAILED IT! What do you think?

Baby Showers & Sweet Savings

It’s been one of those years again where everyone around me is having babies and it seems like it’s all happening at once! I had THREE invites on one day a few weeks ago and had to pick which baby to shower. My Goodwill outfit just happened to coordinate perfectly!

Old Navy t shirt from Goodwill: $4

Pencil skirt from Goodwill: $6

Generic brand wedges from Goodwill: <$8? I’ve had these for a while.

Hubby is unusually not sporting anything from Goodwill this time. I assure you, that doesn’t mean we paid full price for anything!

Other than baby showers, we’ve been not doing much *fun* stuff lately. So my fun stuff has been pairing fun new things in my closet!

Liz Claiborne tee from Goodwill: $5

LuLaRoe skirt from Goodwill: $6

Aldo banana heels from Goodwill: $7

Looking sharp for under $20: PRICELESS!

(Also, bathroom photo because I haven’t been caught yet.)

Casual Friday!!! I was excited to wear these new capris I snagged a few weeks ago. I hate to report that they’re that fun material that fits wonderfully at the beginning of the day and much like a diaper at the end. I prefer things with a bit of stretch to them so they retain their shape. Another Old Navy tee in a similar color to the baby shower shirt and my studded Vince Camuto heels! Another entire outfit from Goodwill for less than $20!

Where do you buy most of your work clothes? Hopefully your answer is Goodwill! Happy Hunting!
