Ghostly Racks

racks.jpegLet’s face it: we do our best to stay on top of the latest trends. But when your biweekly payroll gets in the way, and you’re on your mid 20’s, there is certainly a load of obstacles that can get in the way of the perfect outfit. There are multiple alternatives to help you accomplish ones wardrobe goals, and one of those is thrift shopping – yep, I’m saying second hand. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a promotion for your local thrift store; instead, it is a lesson about how smart shopping have saved my style and my pocket.
There are a variety of items that I have successfully found while shopping at local thrift stores in major cities such as Boston and New York; as well as small towns in states such as  Pennsylvania and Connecticut. There are also some items that are simply huge no-no when shopping in thrift stores, as not matter what, they tend to always be out of style. For example, in years of thrift hunting, I have never found a descent pair of cute winter boots, tote bag, or fall blazer . However, below I will outline a list of things that are very viable, and that are always crucial to have in your closet, as their classic style and fit never goes out of style:
– Fitted pair of jeans
– Floral scarfs
– Winter gloves
– Basic tank tops
– Work pants
– Plain T-shirts
– Leggings
– Faux fur coats
– Print skirts
Yes I agree, thrifting can often be a stinky and depressing challenge – but with the right eye and vision you can make your ghostly adventure into a fashionably remunerating act!
P.S. I have found brand new items with store tag on them for 85% off the original price tag.
Are you up for the challenge?
