Spring Trends at blue / A GOODWILL BOUTIQUE /

First of all thank you for your support my venture with blue / A GOODWILL BOUTIQUE /. I’ve noticed some of you visiting blue to visit my rack of curated clothing that’s New With Tags and I so appreciate it! I’m embracing my fashion-forward side at this point in my life. From clothing swaps, to great partnerships with local consignment stores to shopping retail, I enjoy the trends and seeing people express themselves through fashion.

My clothing rack at blue / A GOODWILL BOUTIQUE featuring all New With Tags Items!

Let’s look at the types of items you can find in my curated section at blue. Spring fashion has new trends exploding and you can shop my rack by visiting the store to find an item that speaks to you!


Now Trending
A major trend we’re seeing now in 2019 is florals. Of course, every Spring brings blooming things and this year is no different. A modern floral will make you look clean, fresh and new. I love this dress from Order Plus as it’s sweet and feminine while also featuring white– another clean, current color. The dress is also a take on a kimono- style which again is in…you can’t go wrong with this dress!

Dress (size Large) $24 NWT


Classic dress anyone? Kate Spade anyone?
Okay, it may come as no surprise that Kate Spade is one of my favorite designers (RIP Miss Spade). I love her color choices as they are usually bright and her designs are fun, imaginative while still staying structured. I found this GEM in the blue dress rack and it immediately moved to my curated one. Love the ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ color scheme and of course, it has it’s original tags and the original price was $398!! Blue has this cutie available for $50!

Kate Spade Spring-Ready Dress (size 8) Normally $398…at Blue for $50


When in doubt…add a kimono
Like I mentioned above, kimonos are a great way to spice up your wardrobe this Spring/Summer. A kimono is a long, loose robe with wide sleeves and tied with a sash. You can add them to a simple top and jeans or dress them up with dress or skirt. Adding a floral kimono will only help you to look polished and in-style. Check out these ones below! The purple velvet pictured left (as seen on QVC for $69.99) is available at blue for $14 with tags! The blue kimono is available for only $10 at blue /A GOODWILL BOUTIQUE/.

Head-to-Toe Monochrome
I know it may seem weird but another way of dressing we’re seeing on the runways and in magazines is monochromatic– and in the neutrals family. Basically from head-to-toe in colors like white, tan, beige and taupe. It is a slimming look and one to be tried! I found this new-with-tags breezy open-front cardigan from Chicos (size small & originally $74.95) in beige and it can be paired with so much! A great start to a one-color theme.

See how it can be styled? Available on my curated rack at blue for $16!

Is it the 80s? Do we have huge bangs and block heels?
The answer is YES. Included in those 80s/90s trends that are making a comeback are pant/skirt suits. That’s right, dust off those gems in your attic or opt to get some with a modern-feel. I stumbled upon this ready-for-work and nail-that-interview outfit while at blue and I am in love! Why can’t I be a size 2?? It retails for over $100 and you can get it for $30!!

Ann Taylor LOFT Skirt Suit New with Tags (blazer size 2, Skirt 4p) $30
