Thrifty Tips

So I do not have an outfit pic today, sorry to devastate & please do not jump off that bridge..... Lol! I thought I'd post a few of my thrifting tips. Give some insight on how I score a Juicy Couture blazer for $3.99 that retails for more than $300! Or how I find an Anthroplogie dress for $8 & resell on EBay for $128!!!! Sorry do not mean to brag, only to help you do the same!!

First off I cannot stress enough the importance of being a "Brand Whore" sorry girls, it's true! If you know Designers, Brands & Labels then you will be the girl who finds the Marc Jacobs dress because you happen to know who he is! Probably the easiest way to keep up on brands is fashion magazines, it's like an investment ;).

The second thing is being present. This means you have to sacrifice some time to frequent your favorite thrift shops. Stopping by repeatedly even if it's a hurried stop, can get you a first look at newly donated or consigned goods.

Third is to have an idea of the value of the items you find. This will help you decide if $3 is too much to pay for that shirt that is currently in the stores for $15. Also this will help you if you plan on reselling the amazing Michael Kors dress you found for $2 but will never be able to fit into. Knowing the prices of labels & designers is a must!

Hope you enjoyed the tips.... Until next time thrift it up!!!!
