So as many of you know, I’m a huge thrifter and fashion enthusiast. My favorite magazines like InStyle and People Stylewatch often have a celebrity wearing an expensive outfit and then show a similar budget friendly version.
Being a huge thrifter I like to do this as the price difference is significant.
There are two ways of doing this:
1. First way is to search for outfit inspiration on sites like Polyvore which houses fashion sets that followers have created. Even searching Polyvore on sites like Pinterest and it will yield lots of great results. The key is to take note of how basics like a simple chambray shirt, scarf, skinny jeans, gingham or plaid and how they are mixed and matched together in unique ways. Pattern and colour mixing is huge right now. Once you know what you need, make yourself a list before you hit your fave thrift or second hand store and you’ll be ready!! This is a great approach for those of you who get overwhelmed at the thought of digging through racks of clothing at a thrift or discount store. You also don’t walk out of the store with something that goes with nothing, you have a vision!! 🙌
2. The backward way I do it!! Lol 😂 I walk into a thrift store with no clue what I’m looking for, find some great pieces and then work backwards. I love putting outfits together. Once I find my treasures, I put together an outfit and then search online for comparable items and put it all together. I have to say that I do this for the benefit of my followers that I revel in the fact that I can save money, still be stylish and then share with my followers!
Whichever way you do it, you’ll be so proud! It’s a huge creative outlet for me!
Here are a few High Low sets I’ve put together! I hope you find the same creative inspiration and enjoy!
