Happy Galentine’s Day! Yes, it’s a real thing. Tomorrow all the love birds can celebrate their partner for Valentine’s Day, but what about celebrating your best girlfriends?! My girls and I have hectic schedules, but we made sure to have a girls day to remind ourselves of the love surrounding us regardless of our relationship statuses. We partnered with Goodwill to shop looks for less because we love to step out in style when we’re together.
We’re all different sizes and although we all love fashion we have different styles, so I was nervous everyone may not find something they loved— but we did! Goodwill offered a range of styles and sizes in all the locations we stopped by. We’re located all over the tri-state so we had separate experiences, but all great ones!
On her shopping experience Tolani said, “Often times I overlook thrift stores when I’m looking for a cute outfit on a budget, but to my surprise I actually found amazing quality items that I loved.” Marshea agreed adding, “To be able to walk into Goodwill and find brands I love like Zara and Shop Akira for a lower price was priceless!”
Tolani and I both rocked thrifted jumpsuits and added our own flair, while Marshea slipped on a cute sweater dress she found at her local Goodwill. A few accessories and we were ready to celebrate our Galentine’s Day together.
If you’re looking for a last minute outfit to celebrate with your girls head to your nearest Goodwill. You don’t always have to break the bank and splurge for cute pieces. In addition to finding looks that fit your style for a low price, you’re helping your community. 87 cents on every dollar spent at their stores is used to create job training opportunities and employment in the community, which is super important with our current government.
Helping the community and finding affordable quality pieces?! What’s not to love!
