For most, opulent events calling for pearls, gowns and elbow-length gloves are few and far between. But that’s what makes them so memorable, worthy of putting on a little extra ritz. Model Caitlin Hochwender wears a mix of vintage and second-hand items from Omaha’s own Goodwill Reserve, located in the heart of the Old Market district. Faux fur detailing on this vintage gown gives the look a ’60s flair, made complete with silky gloves no doubt worn for a formal affair of years past. Vintage accessories and gently worn d’Orsay heels from designer Jessica Simpson complete this classically styled ensemble, which retails in entirety for just under $100 total before tax. Stylist Rebecca Forsyth of Bungalow/8 Hairdressing styled our model’s hair into polished curls and finished off the look with a dramatic cat eye, thick, dark lashes and brilliant pink lips.

Clothing and Accessories provided by Goodwill Reserve located at 501 South 13th Street. Visit or call 402.342.4102 for more information.
