“Patrice, I never find anything when I go thrifting!”
I can’t tell you how many times I receive emails or tweets like this. And in spite of all of the thrift shopping posts I do {thrift shopping 101, thrift shopping commandments, etc.}, there’s always someone who tells me they keep walking away empty handed. Of course I don’t mind the emails, you guys can always contact me, but anytime I respond to problems like this, I tell the frustrated shopper they’re most likely committing typical thrift shopper sins.
If you keep striking out while thrift shopping, you’re probably doing one or all of the things below wrong.

Based on the title you can tell what today’s post is about. It’s my four year blogiversary!! On September 1, 2009 I started this blog and had no idea what it would lead to. I had been laid off from my job at InStyle magazine and just needed a creative outlet and something to break up the monotony of freelance gigs. Fast forward a few years later and from thrift shopping tips to how to wear it style guides to multiple television appearances {Today Show, WE tv, Nate Berkus Show, etc.}, we’ve come a long way.
And since I love my awesome, stylish, loyal readers so much, I’m hosting a giveaway for a $50 Kohl’s gift card.

What’s In Store: Target Fall Preview

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Target fall preview and as expected, it was amazing. This time around, Target allowed us to share photos of the upcoming collection before it hits stores. The pieces don’t make their way to Target and until August, so I’m glad I can actually share these with you. And trust me, you’ll want to see these goods now so you can make a mental note of your must have items.

While viewing the men’s and women’s pieces, a few things became very clear: prints are still going strong {tribal, ikat, camo} and faux leather accents will be your best friend. Though everything is trendy and fashion forward, they’re also work appropriate.

In between munching on light bites and sipping on OJ, I snapped a few pics. Take a peek at Target’s upcoming fall line.
