Last Friday night, there was an on-campus dance called the “Goodwill Ball” where the idea was to wear your best vintage/thrifted/Goodwill-sourced outfits. Unfortunately, a lot of people basically ignored this, but there were some people who showed in fabulous and fashionable thrifted fashion.
I tried to capture as many of these looks as possible, and a huge thank you to everyone who was such a good sports about getting their pictures taken, despite it being about 100 degrees inside the dance.
I saw lots of current trends in the outfits I snapped. Floral, lace (love that blue lace in the last photo), tribal patterns and some 70’s inspired patterns.
As for people’s names, a lot of them I didn’t catch or didn’t know. In the 2nd photo (and on the right in the 6th photo) is my friend Molly, who was totally Rosie the Riveter-chic; in the 8th photo is my friend Erin, who also was in 40s/50s garb (love those t-strap shoes!); in the 2nd-to-last photo is my friend Deandra.
If you see yourself or your friend in one of these pictures and want to let me know their name (and/or their Tumblr!) here; alternatively, if you’d rather not have your photo featured here, just use that same link to send me a message and I’ll take it down.
And don’t worry, I didn’t forget the boys! Their post is right here.
