I Had My Eye On That -The New Thrifting Fiend-

Ralph Lauren
Michael Kors
and some very expensive brands, but very retro brands I'm too young to remember.

Don't they all sound like something you'd want to wear, but unfortunately your wallet doesn't necessarily accessorize this fantasy quite well? Don't fret! There is a new, safe, and affordable trend circulating. Thrifting. Shopping at consignment and discount stores such as Salvation Army and Goodwill was once looked upon as being one of the have-not's. However, saying your a thrifter now-a-days is almost as interesting as saying you've studied abroad. In a thrift shop you can find a plethora of retro street style and even affordable modern brand name clothing. Once you walk into a thrift store and find some of the ancient and forgotten treasures it has to offer, brand name will no longer be of importance. Not only will you find new clothing, new to you, that you can imagine its background story to how it ended in your lap, the best part is: No buyer's remorse. You don't have to look at the receipt and say, 'Well I fed my puppy yesterday, he'll be alright til Friday'. You can shop with a worry free heart, and your wallet will still have some weight at the end of the day. So what are you waiting for? Happy thrifting!

Here are some sources that can help you on your thrifting journey:
