Thrifty fashion? It's like music to my ears! I have to admit that thrift shopping is one of my favorite activities. I enjoy the hunt, but I like to shop smart not hard. I go to store with a mental thrifting check list and I also explore my wallet to make sure I keep myself in budget. Trust me, just because it's a good deal doesn't mean it's 'good' if you're not going to use it. Let's not be hoarders, hoooray!
The way I navigate a store goes like this:
4)Tops---I often find most tops are sorta 'worn out' and I don't bother looking
I also love to shop in the furniture section as well as home goods, but this blog is about thrift fashion. *Wink*
I wanted to share some of my recent thrift store scores as well as some outfit ideas. Dress up time!
Score! Cotton dress with pick-ups = $2.50
Casual look is paired with white vinyl bow belt, fly-a-way cotton cardigan and skull cameo
Evening or club look is paired with cotton ruffled jacket, vintage brooch and second hand string of black beads. I would wear some patterned stockings and witch boots for a completed look. This outfit (pictured) cost me about $20.
Grey and black cotton dress=$3.00
Sourpuss Clothing Corpse Hauler hoodie paired with bat necklace and Dungaree Dolly web spider rosie scarf
Dress paired with leopard vest, multi-cross necklace and DIY bone bow.
If you're not a seasoned thrift store pro, it can be very overwhelming, just breathe! You have to put your thrifter goggles on and stay focused on what you are looking for, it's a lot of trival and error. Second hand shopping can have a big pay off for little money!
I hope I gave you some ideas and inspiration to shop the thrift store/charity shop scene, I really find it to be rewarding. What is your best and/or favorite second hand score-or-Why do you avoid second hand shopping?
Thanks for reading!
