Goodwill x House of Style event

Last month, Seattle Goodwill hosted an event paying tribute to the MTV hit show, House of Style, which aired in 1989 (wowzas, I feel old now). I grew up thrifting with my grandma at Goodwill, so this organization has been near and dear to my heart ever since I could walk! As a style blogger, I often feel like there’s pressure to keep up with the latest and greatest styles and trends, but thrifting and getting creative through DIY projects helps to keep me creative to stay on trend without breaking the bank.

Designer Jordan Christianson of Jonquil & Mr. Black (center), acted as our design mentor for the evening of DIYing, showing us three different pieces he was able to transform on less than a $25 budget. It was incredible to see how different a pair of floral printed jeans looked when cut into cutoffs and tactfully frayed for a flattering fit.

Sitting next to Alyson, Megan of Diary of This Girl and Jenn of Hello Rigby meant getting to dig for inspiration around the store with some of the most creative ladies! I ended up selecting a leatherette sleeved top from Apt 9 as my “blank canvas” to start with:


Together with Jenn and Megan, we rummaged through large vases of pins, mismatched earrings, and broken jewelry to find embellishments for our DIY projects. I’m excited to show you in an upcoming post how this tee was transformed with just some extra lace trim and some vintage enamel pins!
