I make a lot of promises to myself but sometimes they get jumbled or lost as time goes on. One of the promises I made to myself recently was that I’d spend more time thrifting. I have always been really envious of people who can walk into any thrift store and come out with tons of goodies. Its a gift, I swear! Needless to say I don’t have the talent for thrifting but I decided to teach myself.
These past few weeks have been spent sweeping isles and filling buggies full of clothing, shoes and accessories. I’m teaching myself the ins and outs of successful thrifting and what it takes to walk away with the good stuff. So far I’ve learned that putting anything that catches your eye into your cart is super important, skimming through every isle and size is a must if you really want to find hidden treasures and getting down on your hands and knees is sometimes mandatory. Oddly enough this entire process can be pretty therapeutic and relaxing.
One of my main goals out of thrifting is to expand my accessories collection. I lack those extra bits that make an outfit stand out and pull you in. After thrifting for hours with Stina and watching her at work I picked up a lot of really neat stuff. It didn’t take me long to find a way to use my two favourite purchases in an outfit either!!
