Tomorrow April 11th is a day that I have been waiting for, for a while! It is the grand opening of blue, the Goodwill boutique in Kent, Ohio!
There will be style demos, refreshments and a fashion show that will include myself, and many other bloggers in the area. I have a theme for my outfit. But… It’s a secret, so you can’t see my outfit unless you come to blue!
From 2-4 p.m. we are going to have a blast! I’m so excited and honored to be a part of this event. The blogger Dina, from Dinasdays.com put this event together along with employees of Goodwill Industries of Akron!
Come join me and the other bloggers for, For The Love Of Fashion💙!
Can’t wait to see you all there.
Hi everyone! There is a really fun event coming up this Friday from 6-8! I am hosting this event along with a few friends!
The event is called “Thrift Night Out”! Remember that really adorable Goodwill boutique that I wrote about last week? Well, that’s where the event is!
Who doesn’t love combining fashion and hot deals? My friend Elise and I went last week to blue/ A Goodwill®Boutique / that carries upscale women and men’s clothing. I am in love with this store and have already been back six times!
In the picture above, my friend Elise bought this BCBG jacket for only $15! The prices are hard to beat. The most expensive item in the store is $45, which are the real fur jackets (yes I said REAL FUR)! I bought an adorable Ellen Tracy faux-fur vest for $6.
I also bought the black lace shirt underneath. The shirt with the vest is such a cute combo, and blue has many styles like this. Here are some other cute looks that Elise and I put together (notice the awesome art that is on their walls!):
As you can tell from my photos, I am obsessed with the poncho-style capes. No matter the look you want to go for, blue has the options for you.
Make sure to visit next time you’re in Kent!

This week’s Thrifty Thursday is super fall themed! My sister Payton, and two of my best friends Amanda and Dani (yes we have the same name lol) are here this weekend! We have been traveling all around, we have been all over Kent and the areas around! We just came back from a pumpkin patch and it was super adorable! Both of the outfits I’m showing in this Thrifty Thursday are perfect fall outfits!
This week I went to Value Discount Outlet in Akron, Ohio. This store has anything and everything you could ever want! I was in the store with my friend Marie (who was featured last week!) for 2 and a half hours!
The first item that I found is the black puffy vest from Old Navy! I have the same vest from last year, but in coral. I bought the scarf for $45.00 and this year I bought the black vest for $3.00!!! I saved $42 by buying this from VDO!
And next, I bought the adorable patterned shirt! I bought the shirt for $4! I really like this shirt’s material. It is a a nylon/spandex-y material! It is super comfortable.
I hope you like the last picture I posted! Haha!
I also bought one more item, but I want to save it for you for when it gets a little chillier out!
And now, the moment a lot of you have been waiting for! The winner of my first GIVEAWAY is Abbie Burgess!!! Congratulations! What did Abbie win? She won:
Abbie will get to choose the colors that she wants for her monogrammed hat. I am so excited about my first giveaway!
This past week I asked to be challenged to go out to find certain things while thrifting! One of the challenges was to go out and find a Halloween costume! So, I decided to go out and find a “Home-made” costume and one that was store-made. The items that I bought were only $14. If you were to go out and buy either of these costumes at a Halloween store I promise you will spend over $30. I personally think “Home-made” costumes are always so much cuter and original!
My “Home-made” costume if you couldn’t tell was inspired by Rosie the Riveter! I love her! Plus, her look is simple, and everyone will be able to tell what you are. I did add some of my own clothing in this. But, I bought the things that you also may have to go out to purchase! I bought the jean shirt and the “headband” for my first look! I looked all around Goodwill to see if they had Rosie’s signature red and white polka dotted headband but… I didn’t have any luck. So, I thought outside of the box and went to look in the men’s tie area and bought one that was super close to Rosie’s! Underneath of the jean shirt I just wore a basic V-neck and Jeans with combat boots! I feel like Rosie would wear these two things, especially because they were not the “norm” for women of her time.
Next, for my store bought costume I found this adorable lady bug costume! Please guess how much it was… If you guess $10, then you were correct. I was bummed that Goodwill did not have any antennas. 🙁 But I left the cute red headband on. But, if I were to wear this on Halloween I would go out and buy antennas to complete my look. On the back of the costume there are cute little wings!
I love both of these costumes but, I have to say that I love my Rosie the Riveter one a little bit more! 🙂
I hope you all will think about Thrifting your Halloween costumes this year, I promise it will save you an arm and a leg! I would love to see the costumes that you all find! Please share the pictures with me on Facebook on my page Defining Danie or on Twitter/Instagram @Danieminor13!
Hope you all enjoyed this weeks themed Thrifty Thursday!
