I’ve had a few people more recently ask me questions about my thrifting experience, so I figured I’d fully go through some of the questions I’ve been asked and share with you guys!
When thrifting, do you usually have items in mind to look for or do you just pick and choose ?
Funny thing is I almost always tell myself I need to buy this and stay away from that. For example I have loads of short sleeves so I’ll tell myself no more short sleeves more long sleeves/sweaters. But when I get to the thrift shop, all my planning goes out the window. I randomly grab what catches my eye and make my way.
What’s your favorite item to find while thrifting ?
I loveeeeeee blazers and belts ! I am so lucky when it comes to finding the two of these. I love a shoulder padded blazer with detail, I like my belt buckles big and chunky or a textured belt ( snakeskin, pebbled, etc).
How do you incorporate your vintage pieces into your outfits to make them more modern looking?
I’ve been soooo obsessed with ironically styling my outfits if that makes sense? I love pairing two opposite items you wouldn’t normally wear together. For example: I like to rock a pair of fancy/dressy dangle earrings with a more dressed down fit or a tiny purse/clutch you would normally wear with a gown but instead with a pair of jeans and a hoodie or blazer. This makes the outfit more unique and lively for me.
When looking for inspo, where do you look ?
I am obsessed with the 90’s era, always have always will. I am a Pinterest junkie, most of my outfit inspo and ideas will come from there. I love searching up Hillary banks fits from The Fresh Prince, Sarah Jessica Parker’s outfits in the 90’s, Tyra Banks Street wear in her early modeling days, and for more up to date fashion I’m obsessed with Rihanna and Bella Hadid.
