Tomorrow, April 18, Goodwill Industries of Denver will celebrate the accomplishments of individuals who have overcome tremendous odds in order to achieve great things at the 17th Annual Goodwill Power of Work Luncheon. The luncheon will honor four Goodwill participants whose stories of struggle, hard work and determination will leave you inspired. You can read about this year’s award recipients here.
And. . . you can dress yourself from head to toe for the luncheon or absolutely any other business event, by shopping at Goodwill! By shopping and donating at Goodwill, you are helping to improve the lives of 21,000 Coloradans each year. The sale of donated goods to the retail stores fund highly successful career development programs for at-risk youth, struggling adults and individuals with disabilities. It’s a win-win opportunity! You get a new-to-you, stylish and unique outfit for way less than you would pay at the mall, while at the same time giving back to the community. And we haven’t even touched on the subject of recycling!
I came up with a couple of modern takes on business attire that would be suitable for a luncheon.
I found this complete suit, blouse and belt ensemble at the Stapleton Goodwill. It’s a really cute suit, but I added the studded belt and black tights and heels to add some flavor. Also, the black earrings with gold accents add even more interest to the outfit. No more boring business suit here!
If you prefer pants to skirts, pair a cropped pant with an interesting blouse. Try to find ruffles! Large ruffles are one of the big trends for this spring and summer. I found this amazing blouse at the Leetsdale Goodwill and the pants, heels and vintage COACH purse are from the Goodwill boutique, Deja Blue.
Now, which one to wear—I think I’ll let the weather decide for me!
