Thrift stores are some of my favorite places to shop…where else can you get fuchsia suede pumps for $2?! It can be a little overwhelming though if you’re not a seasoned thrifter. Here are 4 tips to make your next trip to your local thrift store a good one.
1. Take a deep breath: it’s easy to be overwhelmed when you first walk in and see an ocean of clothing racks! Don’t feel like you have to look at everything in the store. Pick a couple sections and focus on those!
2. Don’t let the junk distract you from the treasures: piles of mom jeans and outdated sweaters can often blind you from the good stuff. I find that heading for the accessories and purses are good places to start. I’m rarely disappointed with what I find! Be patient and pick through what’s there. Leather clutch or vintage clip-ons? Yes please!
3. Keep in mind what’s already in your closet: a floral polyester top may look dated in the store but when paired with your skinny jeans and boots at home…you get the picture!
4. Sometimes it’s just luck: if you find yourself leaving empty handed don’t let that deter you from trying again! Today there might not be anything you like but next week you could hit the jackpot!
I went thrifting yesterday and found some really thrilling things! Here’s what I picked up…
What is a Peplum? A peplum is essentially ruffled or pleated material that flares out at the waist of a skirt, dress, jacket, or top. Popular in the 1940′s, this cut has made a comeback this year on the runway and red carpet.
Super chic and elegant with a classy vintage vibe, the peplum is a wearable trend for 2012! Choose a more fitted peplum with a cinched waist if you’re curvy. And if your thin or have a strait figure go for a flared one to add some sexy hourglass curves!
If you’d like to try the peplum trend with out breaking the bank, Forever21 has a great one available now for only $17.80!
