Holiday Glam Spotlight – The Little Red Dress

You’ve had a relaxing Christmas weekend and now it’s time to think about which outfit you’ll be rockin’ on New Year’s Eve.  Perhaps you’ve been seen in the same Little Black Dress in too many of your Faceboook photos.  What do you do?

Here’s a solution, Goodwill has some amazing holiday cocktail dresses and gala worthy gowns – try a Little Red Dress.  You could buy entire outfits – guilt-free during the holidays without cutting into your budget.

The Goodwill Hunter found this fun and flirty chiffon lined red dress (above) and Norma Kamalipumps at the Kaimuki Goodwill store along with this ever-so-chic retro handbag (as seen in the Kaimuki window display.)  You could easily put together three stunning ensembles for the price of one (outside of Goodwill) –  for the coming weekend.  This way you’ll be able to attend a few major parties in Honolulu:  (1) The grand opening of The Standard at Waterfront Plaza - enjoy the Midnight Fashion Show on 12/30/11.  Then on the next night as the countdown to midnight begins, check out (2) The Party of the Year at Aloha Tower and you can’t miss (3)  The NYE Celebration – Beautiful Edition at Pearl.

In Katy Perry’s words, Baby, You’re a Firework – so when you’re party hopping and literally bouncing from one scene to the next, have fun in your hot outfits but more importantly,  remember to drive safely.

In the year leading up to Goodwill Goes GLAM! in 2012, the Goodwill Hunter will highlight fashion finds set aside for THE big event. Goodwill Industries of Hawaii presents the inaugural Goodwill Goes GLAM!, a showcase of talent, treasure and style — all for a great cause. When you purchase items at Goodwill, know that more than 90 percent of the retail revenue goes to programs that help people with employment barriers become self-sufficient.
