Heading back to LA this weekend for the big Green the Red Carpet Sip & Swap with The Swapaholics, I’m unbelievably excited to continue working through this list of vintage, consignment, thrift & secondhand shops most often recommended to me by friends and fashion bloggers. The forecast is for rain, it’s Oscars weekend, I’m sure I won’t come home empty handed.
Be sure to follow my new Tumblr blog, Stealfinder, to see pics of my inevitable scores, and please add your favorite shops to the comments so I can be sure to check them out while we’re in town!
Goodwill of Southern California
I have a special place in my heart and my closet for Goodwill, and naturally I have to hit every Goodwill in every city I pass through, so I’m super excited to not only get to shop there in LA, but also to work with Goodwill of Southern California as our official charity partner for the Sip & Swap, sending all our leftover clothing to be sold in their stores to benefit their job training & youth empowerment programs. And apparently Hollywood’s elite feel the same. Recently, papperazzi spotted Amanda Seyfried donating her castoffs to Goodwill, and rumor has it that Angelie Jolie recently contemplated wearing another dress from Goodwill on the red carpet, like the famous $26 vintage dress she wore to the Mighty Heart premiere back in 2007. Expect a very special Goodwill Hunting/Thank Goodwill It’s Friday this week!
