14 Reasons You Need to Check Out the Edited by Goodwill Pop-Up Shop in Chinatown
Bargain-level prices in a beautiful boutique setting—and it opens today at noon. By Sarah Zlotnick

1. Forget the overcrowded racks you’re used to—the best merch is beautifully laid out boutique-style.

2. And there is something very Anthropologie-esque about the in-store displays. (Kudos to Gensler, the design firm responsible for the setup.)

3. We found a $448 Monique Lhuillier cocktail dress for $15.98. That’s under $16, people!

4. This dress is the perfect vintage score for end-of-summer weddings.

5. And this jacket is the perfect alternative to a boring black/navy blazer.

6. (As is this one.)

7. The J.Crew pieces you see in Current for $25 are under $5 here.

8. We can think of a million and five ways we’d style this graphic maxi skirt.

9. And a million and six outfits this classic leather carryall would pair with.

10. Plaid pleats—still stylish in an Isaac Mizrahi sort of way.

11. Two words: leather skirt. And it’s only $5.98!

12. Your entire work shoe wardrobe is here, and you can get it for under $23.

13. And sexy date shoes can be had for $8.98.

14. There’s also menswear!

The Edited by Goodwill pop-up shop runs today through Friday at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery (702 Eighth St., NW). The shop will be open from noon to 7 each day. Despite the boutique-quality displays, prices remain delightfully low: skirts for $8.98, blouses for $5.98, men’s casual shirts for $4.98, suits for $19.98, and formal dresses for $15.98.

    I wish DC had the Goodwill Boutiques like Palm Beach County, FL., which are open year-round and do a great business. It's fun to shop there and I've bought several great deals there.

    Thank you for the story and for everyone's support! The next "pop-up" shop will be at our gala coming up in September! -DCGF

    @CogniZENnce great idea! I'm with the design team from Gensler, and this was a first pop-up store for all so we're very excited that it has been such a hit!

    I scored #6 and #12 (nude colored heels)! How about a follow-up piece showcasing how shoppers style their fantastic Goodwill finds?

    Proud owner of item #11 (black leather pencil skirt) and I'm still swooning over it! Check out what else I got in this post on my blog WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! http://whatiworetiptotoe.blogs...
