Thrifting Fashion

dreamcloset2

I just have to say I have yet to find a FABULOUS blog, with beautiful outfits that have been thrifted. I realize that we all have our opinions on what style is… but there is a reason I only buy name brand/boutique/ and designer items from thrift stores. Im honestly a little disappointed that I haven’t found any. If all of these ‘fashion thrifters’ saw my spare closet, they MIGHT drop dead. My spare closet is FILLED with designer clothes (yes, they were ALL thrifted, or purchased for DIRT CHEAP). AND, I don’t even go to yard sales (who wants to wake up at the crack of dawn??)  If your a size 0-8 I can put a FABULOUS outfit together for you that retail would cost over $100, for me no more than $20! PLEASE someone challenge me! Unfortunately smaller sizes are SO much easier to style… for one reason almost everything looks good on them, and secondly because that’s usually the best stuff at the thrift stores. You can find fabulous plus clothing too, but its a challenge.

I dream to have my own TV show one day either on the style channel or HGTV called “Thrift your home”

If anyone know of any fabulous thrifting blogs please let me know.

Decorate a nook

Ok, so even though most of these items are not thrifted… I still decorated this nook for under $90! That sounds like ALOT… but that includes everything EXCEPT the chair. I originally wanted to do a gallery on this wall and have like 6 pictures of family etc, but I couldn’t find 6 identical frames that were cheap enough, nor could I find 6 pictures I wanted to display. The pics in the frames now, are all from downtown Charleston, and I snapped all 3 – actually every photo in my house I took, its cheap and its a great way to show off your own creativity.

The chair is from TJMAX I believe is was around $100 (my cat has now ruined it :()
