I have decided to take the plunge into blogging. You will need to forgive me now for really not having ANY idea what I am doing.
If my friends are following me, they will know that I am a fashion NUT. I have been since I was little (even though I was matching blue cords with red cowboy boots. I was young, forgive me) I even spent my very first paycheck on clothes. I admit, I am a shopaholic and probably always will (I blame it on my Mother, Love you Mom :) )
I have a huge passion for thrift shopping at the moment. I will be sure to take pics of all of my purchases from this day forward, I really do find great things!!!
I read and article about recycling clothing because it's "greener"
When I originally started my thrift obsession, I was just stoked on the good deals/great brands I happened to be finding. Some with store tags still attached. From reading the article, I feel a lot better for not spending the money in the mall anymore. I can find nearly the exact same things if not better at my local thrift shop.
A lot of people may think it's gross, but really, you take the item home, wash it and BAM it's basically a new piece of clothing. Most shops will look over clothing for holes, stains and other damage so you shouldn't come across too many ugly items.
I suggest you give it a try. You may need some patience (I definitely have a ton of it) and time on your side. Trust me, you will be able to FILL your wardrobe with plenty of unique items!
A big tip, make sure you search outside your size. You would be surprised on what a size L shirt or blouse can look like when you add a belt.
Thanks for reading
