1. Shopping From Thrift Stores:

There’s a general assumption that thrift store items are trashy or not fashionable, but if you look in the right stores and even try online ones for some great pieces that have only been worn lightly and are still in great shape, then you’ve got a chance to still look fab. Some pieces you can get from thrift stores include vintage t-shirts, jeans, jackets (depending on what type you’re looking for), and even footwear. So, get your thrift on!
