Thrifting Tips

Why I stopped buying trendy pieces.. If you have been here a while you probably already know that I have been thrifting my clothes for the past 2 years.  It has helped me find my own style and my own voice when it comes to the pieces I wear.  I am not saying I will never wear what is trendy, but I will def be looking for those trends second hand. Here are a few tips I use before heading to the thrift stores... Make a thrift wish list.    For the longest time I had on my list an oversized quilted jacket/coat and I just recently found one that was in prefect condition. I was so happy!! Also found a pair of Levi's ribcage flares I can't wait to wear them. Having a list helps you when choosing what to bring home. Have an open mind. Not every piece you find will be the exact match, but having an opened mind and a good tailor always helps.    Do not worry about sizing. If you don't already know, a vintage 8 it is not a modern 8 per say.  I buy whatever fits and looks good regardl

Spring Forward

  Waiting for Spring... With Spring right around the corner I am starting to spring clean my house, my mind and everything! Here are three things I did so far.. I lightened my hair I been wanting to go blonde for a while and I finally did last month.  I went in for some front highlights, but my hair dresser convinced me to do a full head of them.  I am happy I did! I cleaned my closet This is something I do on a regular basis, but right before the change of season I edit my closet and pretty much donate anything that I have not worn in at least a year and items that don't bring me joy anymore. Change/Add new skin products I like to call myself a collector not a hoarder when it comes to skin care.  As much as I like to keep them all, I also do a clean sweep of products that really didn't work for me.  My most used item is my moisturizer and that is the first thing I change from a thicker one to a lotion for the warmer days. Is there anything you do before the change of season?
