Location: New York City
I started when I was a teenager. I loved fashion and wanted to be unique. My family couldn’t afford to buy me clothes, so I would rummage through local thrift stores with friends.
Adventurous. Unique. Bold.
It’s really hard to pick one but my Moschino emerald green jacket is probably the piece I’ve worn and given the most love to.
I am a huge fan of the Buffalo Exchange and Beacon’s Closet shops in Brooklyn and NYC. You can find such amazing pieces that are gently worn or not worn at all for super cheap!
People are usually surprised and then follow up with questions about which thrift stores I frequent.
Don’t go into a thrift store with expectations. Be open minded and creative, and always check the men’s section. That’s where I’ve found some great button downs and sweaters.
