All Thrift Everything: Goodwill Industries Spring Fashion Show Recap



Styled to perfection by Kori of ColourbyNumbr.com Green Pants + Tweed this look killed...!

I'm proud to say that the Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit Spring Fashion Show: Fashion for Jobs was a success! Tisha and TaNisha of the Thrifty Broads hosted the show along with Goodwill's Director of Public Relations and Special Events, Mark Lane. Their task keeping the crowd going with raffles, games and of course the reveal of the Retail vs. Resale prices.

Models of all ages, including the youngest a 3-year old shined bright in bargain thrift store finds and proved the Thrifty Broads saying right, that is..."Looking fabulous doesn't have to break the bank!"

After the Thrifty Broads were announced I thrifted the runway in fully thrifted look from the Goodwill. Total estimated retail price:  $110, Goodwill Price: $14.97

We had to strike a pose backstage, don't we look ThriftFAB
Mossimo Boyfriend tee: $2.99 | Radcliff Green Blazer: $5.99 | American Eagle Boyfriend Jeans $5.99
