How to Thrift like a Pro


Thrift shopping is so much fun, it is like an ultimate treasure hunt. If you are luckily enough to be in the financial position to acquire hidden treasures then this is the blog post for you.

I love thrift shopping and upcycling clothes because of the crazy fashion fact that the fashion industry is one of the most landing pollution contributors. Especially, luxury brands and certain thrift shops will burn or throw away stuff at the end of every season instead of having a clearance; So, thrift-shopping isn't just trendy but environmentally friendly. Some of my most precise clothing was found at thrift shops and open markets.

If you are ready to join the thrifting community of other places (New York) or online then here is what you need to know:

Though thrift shopping can be size-selective as there are certain size privileges you can still always find something for any type of person. There is always a ton of cool stuff like once I found a pink houndstooth suit that made me look like I belonged in clueless or the time that I found a Gucci sunglasses case with a toilette for $3; I mean Hello Gucci!!! Again, thrift shopping is about getting stuff to get but a generous exchange, because my ideology is to prioritize and already know the type of pieces I am looking for and that whatever I buy won't end back-up at a thrift store, either becomes a handy-me down or upcycled...If you can’t find a suitable in-person or online thrift place then it's not you, it's the places.

For instance, I dearly shop at my local thrift shop, I hand it to the city to check out Beacon's Closet and others. I will leave a few online resources and Instagram accounts because style is not only original but collaborative.

Look your best,
