Goodwill Akron Blogger Style Challenge

Goodwill Akron Style Challenge Fashion Show

Saturday was the Goodwill Akron Blogger Style Challenge and the store was buzzing! I had a fabulous time hanging out with other area bloggers (including Dina's Days who planned the event!) and chatting with shoppers. For the challenge, we each had $20 to spend and 30 minutes to scour and ransack the store. (just kidding about the ransacking, wink wink). Thankfully, I shop at the store quite often and knew exactly where I needed to go to search for fab finds. I had an idea to try and do a trendy layered look with some sort of a very unique statement piece. First thing I wanted to find was a great skirt...and man, I found a gorgeous fringe maxi. Boom! There was my statement piece! I then based my outfit around it. The fringe was a very bohemian style so I looked for casual neutrals to go with it. For an interesting twist I added a dark gray metallic sparkly Zara top to layer. I felt it added some color depth and a hint of glam to the look. As I was lost in happy designer/styling land, time flew by and it was time to show off our looks! It was cool to see all the other bloggers finds & treasures...and also how they styled them. This was such an inspiring community event. I hope more events like this pop up. It's a great way to show that fashion is about style and not having to spend big bucks.
