for this post I'd like to thank Macklemore

and the people at Value Village for not kicking us out.

My previous thrifting tips still stand true, but this post needed an update. 

SONG TO READ THIS TO: YEs by lmfao


Lets cut right to it, 10 quick thrift tips lets GO:

1. This is not an intimidating sport

It's basically just a gazillion garage sales in one big building!

2. If your'e freaked about wearing someone else's clothes, use the sanitize cycle or head to the dry-cleaners

Hand-me-downs? Basically the same thing.

3. Bring friends 

"YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS ON WITH THOSE PANTS." Guess who bought both.

4. Have an open mind

There are no rules in fashion. If you find something you love, you can make it your own.

5. Just try it on

For $4 dollars this could be DIY'd into a pretty lit tube top.

Everything there has a story, imagine the last event this was worn at?

8. Be careful with name brands

I have always stood by this: just because something is expensive, doesn't mean it's nice. Yes it's exciting to find Michael Kors for dirt cheap, but are you wanting it solely for the label or because you're actually going to wear it? We're shopping to save money, remember?

9. If you like it, wear it

To an extent, I don't believe in anything going out of style. Popularity, sure. If I like something, I'm going to wear it. How are new trends supposed to start, anyway?

10. HAVE FUN

Celebrate your finds with some fresh squeezed OJ.

Pretend you're in a music video and you'll have even more fun I promise.

Thank you to my beautiful photographer Kenzie and my oh so talented production manager Amanda. This post was a bucket of fun thanks to them. PRACTICE SAFE THRIFTING AND ENJOY YOURSELVES.
