Be a Hand-me-down Fashionista

24 Sep

Let’s face it one way or another we have to spend in order to achieve our dream looks. But that does not mean that we have to swipe our credit cards and get drown by debts in the long run. Truth is, you can achieve your dream look without spending too much, how? Simple, visit thrift stores. You may not believe it but even famous personalities do shop at thrift stores so there’s no reason to be ashamed. But as you know, the products in thrift store are not as good as new because practically, they are already used. Fret not, because you could still score the best piece of outfit by being wise and practical. The following are the to-do list you must keep in my mind once you enter thrift store.

Bring your favourite celebrity outfit photo: You have to have a “steal-her-look” photo. This will serve as your reference in order for you to have an easier time in picking up the items. However, being spontaneous is a good thing, so never ever copy the whole reference, make your own modification, you have to set your OWN taste. You wouldn’t like to look like a petty copycat, would you?

Be keen in the items’ details: Again, you have to remember that the items that you are purchasing in a thrift store are already used so do not expect them to look perfectly nice. Be keen in seeing some damages and don’t buy something out of haze that you cannot use eventually because you overlook the damages.

Thrist Store

Bring a budget goal: Challenge yourself! Score a gorgeous look without making your wallet suffer. Bring only the money that you aspire you spend on shopping at thrift store. In that way, you will really become careful and cautious in bagging that perfect piece.

Be Patient: There are piles of items that you will see in a thrift store and sometimes it is really hard to get the items that you want. So be patient in raiding every rack.
