Get a chic new wardrobe for practically nada
The Gorgeous Pearl Bailey
Do you need a cute, new, unique wardrobe without breakin' the bank?
Lord knows I do. That's why were going to do this together!
Vintage and thrift shopping is the holy grail of an answer to all of your problems. I love finding one-of-a-kind peices that no one else has for next to nothing. You can also find some buried treasures every once in a while. I'm talking designer peices y'all. Even if you find something that doesn't fit perfectly, you can take it to the tailor to make it fit perfectly. And we all know that the better your clothes fit, the more flattering they are to your body.
Some of my favorite thift, vintage, and second-hand shops :
$=What a steal
$$$=Still cheaper than full price
Goodwill - www.goodwill.com ($)
Buffalo Exchange - www.buffaloexchange.com ($$)
Wasteland - www.wastelandclothing.com ($$)
Thrift Town..MY FAV - www.thrifttown.com ($)
Salvation Army Thrift Store - www.sanfrancisco.satruck.org ($)
Painted Bird - www.paintedbird.org ($$$)
A few of my finds this year:
Leopard scarf, $0.50 from Thrift Town
Enigma Shoe, $4 from Goodwill in San Franciso
Brand spanking new Forever 21 Shoes. Leopard print,cone heel. $8 from Thrift Town.
As you see, I love leopard. Rawwwr.
