Last month, I went to Florida for 2 weeks. I shoved all the clothes I thrifted in the previous weeks into a duffle bag, and hoped for the best. Thrifting & second hand clothing will help you find what you actually like, and not just what’s trendy or on the racks of retailers thriving on sweat shops. Grab a few friends & a disposable camera, and head to a thrift shop this upcoming weekend, I promise you will have the time of your life shuffling between colorful boas and funky hats. Or, host a clothing swap with your besties, and steal your favorite things from their wardrobe, while they steal theirs from yours, and do so without harming the environment (or economy).
Shirt & Gap Denim jeans thrifted, checkered Vans slip ons
Shirt from a friend (come & get it Ky) and thrifted Calvin Klein jeans cut into shorts
I don’t know what this is but I kinda miss being burnt
Random gray tank, thrifted Levi’s 501’s cut into shorts
Vans off white old skool’s
Rings I picked up from Goodwill
One of my favorite tee’s I found at Goodwill, and the same cut off Calvins
My favorite ring
A brand new Billabong (I think?? Or Bongo) backpack I found at Goodwill for $8… YES!?!?!?
Also another one of my now favorite tee’s, old school Ralph Lauren Polo with, yet again, the same Calvin cutoffs with the only belt I own
Go to your local thrift shop, consignment store, or flea market, and pick up some new pieces. You’ll feel so much better about shopping, trust me.
