Another fashion week is coming up soon and I am very excited about the options that colder season offers, but there is still no way that I can't enjoy the hot summer weather while it lasts. I love waking up to the bright sunshine and then sipping a glass of fresh orange juice on my little patio to jump start my morning. I've lived in Seattle for almost 6 years now and I will never get tired of this beautiful and refreshing summer because Japan is just too hot and humid to be able to enjoy such pleasurable moments during the summer. Yesterday I can't believe that it went up to 94 degree! Yay to the remainder of summer!!
I teamed up with Goodwill, one of the nation's biggest thrift stores, to do something fun as part of their celebration for their new store launch in Capitol Hill. I was asked to shop there, hunt for whatever I loved (within a budget), and put together some outfits for them. It's pretty simple, but this is absolutely a fun way to celebrate their launch, isn't it? The last time I went to a Goodwill store was quite a while ago, perhaps even three years back? So I was really thrilled to check out the new store.
Unlike the stores I've been to before, this new store was really modern and easy to shop! They have a super large and spacious floor within a two-storied building, with the main level featuring all clothing items white the basement area sells non-apparel goods such as furniture, books, kitchen supplies, and etc... Everything is very nicely categorized and placed. It totally helped me to find exactly what I wanted to shop for. I felt like I was in a store at the mall or something!
A vintage Diet Coke t-shirt
GAP denim shorts
A denim midi skirt
Several gold accessories (A necklace & 4 bracelets)
A patent belt,
A set of Adidas sports bra and running shorts
Isn't it amazing how much I was able to scored? And guess what! I could still buy more within my budget!
I decided to choose the vintage t-shirt and denim shorts to create a boho-inspired look. Because it was hot like yesterday, I knotted the hem of the t-shirt so that it acts like a cropped top and allows my tammy to feel the breeze. I also rolled up and tacked the sleeves to turn it into a sleeveless top. Believe it or not, it gives a big change to keep cooler. Paring some major essential pieces of the boho style was the key and final touch for this look: a floppy brimmed hat, fringed cross-body bag, a dangling ear cuff, and a plenty of bracelets plus arm cuffs.
I hope you enjoyed how I styled my new items from Goodwill, and please check out the new store in Capitol Hill if you live around the area! Stay tuned for the future looks of how I mix up my other picks!
Stay cool, and enjoy your day!
