When and why did you start thrift shopping?
Of course the prices for thrifted clothes are a big plus but to me it’s more than that. It’s a way for me to express my creativity with items that are new and old. I love mixing up my thrift finds with today’s fashion.Thrifting has given me my own style and I love that I can express myself differently through my outfits.
What reactions do you get when you tell people your outfit is thrifted?
They looked confused and surprised! It amazes a lot of people that something second hand and used (or sometimes not used) can be played around stylishly with today’s fashion.
