Cozy sweaters seem to be a trend this season, and I’m here for it. Personally, they’ve been a go-to for me in the winters. Anything that keeps me warm and cozy will always be something I gravitate towards. Corduroy is another trend that’s blowing up that I’m really loving. The only other corduroy item I possess is my vintage Ralph Lauren pink corduroy jacket. So when I found this H&M colorful sweater and Joie corduroy jeans on the same day at the Curated by Goodwill in the Upper West Side, it was a no-brainer! I had to get them. What is this Curated by Goodwill you ask? Don’t worry, I got you covered.
Curated by Goodwill is a regular Goodwill store with slightly higher end quality clothing and prices than your normal Goodwill. The concept behind Curated by Goodwill came from a Goodwill-sponsored contest for the Fashion Institute of Technology, where students were tasked with coming up with an inventive new concept for their chain. The students with the winning concept were then given $10,000 as prize money, and Goodwill brought their concept to life. What I love about this new store is that when you walk in, the entire store is open and spacious so you can pinpoint where you want to go at first glance. All the clothing are color coded, so if you’re looking for a specific color, it’s super easy to find. I once found a barely worn jacket from Soia and Kyo which normally cost about $500 for $50 bucks, but it was a size too small. I know, just my luck.
I Hope you stop by and check it out if you’re ever in the UWS. If you do let me know and I hope you love this outfit as much as I do! Have a lovely Thanksgiving day, wherever you might be!
Curated by Goodwill is located at 217 W 79th St, New York, NY 10024 / Open every day from 10 am to 8 pm
