This post is part of Goodwill's #blog4good effort. Goodwill is on a mission to end unemployment. If you'd like to learn more about the programs that Goodwill offers, just click here. Last week, during our crazy east coast storms, I attended the #EditedforGoodwill, spring trunk show. My friends at Goodwill collect great items from the stores in the DC area, during the year and bring them to DC for a pop-up shop at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery. Goodwill prices in a boutique setting, genius! I had a blast, chatting with fellow fashion lovers and I even scored two great items. I considered a few other things but decided to leave them for someone else. I'm working at purging my closet of items that I don't wear. I was trying to be smart about my purchases.

Despite the nasty weather, it was a great evening of fun, fashion and giving back. I got some great buys and over the course of the trunk show, Goodwill raised lots of money for their work to end unemployment. If you're doing spring cleaning, drop off your gently used clothes at your local Goodwill donation center. Your donations will help Goodwill raise money for employment programs and help those who need it. While you're there, check out the great summer fashion.
