Vintage Loving

You don’t have to spend a lot on your clothes. I LOVE thrifting and finding great vintage finds for two reasons. 1) You can easily find unique pieces that everyone and their mother won’t have 2) Quality items at a LOW price

vintage

Have you ever noticed how quickly some of your clothes fall apart? Zippers break, buttons come loose, stitching comes undone at the seams, it begins to look worn. Not only do I enjoy finding amazing deals, I enjoy the fact that all of the above isn’t true for most of my thrifted finds (especially when it was clearly made way back in the day)! This blouse I got for $5 ($9.50 with S&H) and the faux fur jacket for $15 (and some odd cents with S&H) and you can just tell how quality the items are!

Anyway, I am having this long random tangent for today’s outfit because it just goes to show how much I love vintage. In the upcoming months I hope to share more about my thrift store shopping (both online and offline, as I found both of these items online) by sharing shopping videos and doing remix posts with new items I find from Goodwill, Salvation Army, ShopGoodwill (online bidding site for Goodwill items) and Etsy vintage stores.

    I get so excited when I find something great at a thrift store. Sadly, there isn’t a huge selection of quality items up here where I live, but I still like the “chase” of trying to find one. That faux fur piece is great!

    Exactly! Thrifting is awesome because you can find quality pieces that are UNIQUE. It’s the best of both worlds. You look great and you should wear red every day :)

    There are so many thrifting options in NYC that it can get kind of overwhelming at times, but the payoff of finding an amazing piece is always so great!

    Thrifting is how I find my most beloved clothing items. I really love Ralph Lauren, and I come across tops, sweaters, everything at the local Goodwill that happens to be in a super nice area. I’m surprised more people don’t do it!

      I know… it does seem strange because a lot of what people love the most from my closet is thrifted. I think people get frustrated easily though because the first few times you go, its hard to get oriented to something you have to dig through as opposed to walking into your favorite store and seeing endless options. It is totally worth it though! In high school one of my close friends was amazing at finding great Ralph Lauren pieces… I used to have a thrifed pinstripe blazer from Ralph Lauren that was AHAMZING!

    I’ve done some thrifting here and there but I still prefer shopping retail. Maybe it’s my Goodwill, but it’s hit or miss for me.

    LOVE your fur jacket, it’s gorgeous!

    The faux fur jacket is amazing! I love shopping vintage, but unfortunately I just don’t have a knack for finding great clothing. I can never seem to find the great items that others do. I instead end up with all sorts of random (but cool) things for my apartment. I can’t wait to hear more about your favorite vintage places to shop!

    What a cool jacket! I need to find better thrift stores around me. I did recently find a black formal gown that I’m going to wear at a wedding for $8.99! I’m really proud of myself! haha…
