Vertigo Paris jacket price tagMaria, who guessed that we paid $3.50 for the adorable Vertigo Paris snap-button jacket in black, made in France. Actually, we paid $4 (see the photo), but Maria’s guess was closest.

Maria wins a pair of tickets to the 5th Annual Good Style Fashion Show on Thursday, May 7!

If you didn’t win, you can still purchase tickets. Several options are available, including VIP tickets for $90 and discount tickets for $30. No matter which you buy, you’ll still get heavy hors d’oeuvres, a drink ticket, boutique shopping, a gift bag and, of course, the runway show!

Get details for the show on the Goodwill site.

Thanks to all our contest participants on our blog and on our Facebook page, and we hope to see you at the show!

We’re giving away a pair of tickets to the 5th Annual Good Style Fashion Show on Thursday, May 7.  The only thing you have to do is guess how much we paid for a piece we’ll be using in the show. (Not in the mood to try your luck? Just go ahead and purchase your tickets.)

Our theme for this year is Cleveland Staycation, and we’ve put together outfits for many of the top “things to do” around town such as the Cleveland Orchestra, Great Lakes Science Museum, Metroparks Zoo, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Hessler Street Fair and more. You can see our collection as well as the collections of several other local fashion bloggers on the runway.

OK, here’s the moment you’ve been waiting for:

Picture This: An Orange Barrel Outfit

By Abby and Elle
You don’t have to picture it; we moved the orange barrel off the road and onto the runway. How come? Because our theme for this year’s Good Style Fashion Show was Cleveland seasons, and we all know that Orange Barrel is an official season in Northeast Ohio.

The other official season (because there are only two) is winter, and our segment of the show was introduced by, who else, our very own and unforgettable Polar Vortex.

As you might expect, summer barely showed up in the show. Kayleen, who was one of our “summer” models, was feeling under the weather that evening so she wasn’t able to make it. Translation: Short summer for Cleveland — sadness!

Check out the fashion show photos, and let us know which one you like best!

One of the items we purchased at Goodwill for the show is a black velvet blazer, in like-new condition. Not only did it look and feel cozy, the blazer is versatile, pairing perfectly with everything from a flouncy skirt to a pair of jeans. (Plus, have we mentioned how much we love velvet?)
