I typically hold all thrift related posts for Thursday {gotta love Thrifty Thursday!}, but I didn’t want to delay posting this fun project. Last week I worked with StyleBlazer to film a short video on the do’s and don’ts of thrift shopping. While I see thrifting as an easy, fun pastime, I know plenty others see it as intimidating and time consuming.

If that’s you, then check out the video below where I share how to navigate crowded racks, shopping for accessories and what I call my go-to thrifting uniform that makes it easier to shop.

It’s that time of year again for the Housing Works Best of Sale! I’m a huge Housing Works fan {you know I’m obsessed with the Buy the Bag sale, $25 for a bag full of clothing!} and the Best of is a biannual event where their 12 thrift shops offer the best of their thrifted goods, including vintage and designer clothes, accessories, art, home decor and more.

Basically, if you want a curated collection of the best of the best, this is the place to be. The sales are so intense that people line up hours in advance and the stores close the day before to make way for the merchandise.

Keep reading for more details on the Housing Works Best of sales and one that’s coming up this weekend that I’ll be attending!

Dressbarn. What comes to mind when you hear that name? For me it’s stuffy pantsuits, oversized florals and pretty much nothing I would wear. Well, I can admit when I’m wrong.
Dressbarn recently launched DRESSBAR, a collection of curated dresses from top designers which you can shop online, in store and in NYC, there’s a pop up shop {102 Fifth Ave.}.
I tried a few of the dresses out and here are the hits, misses and what you should check out.
