Cents for Style

I’m a thrift store junkie, who strongly believes that the latest fashions can be found at any secondhand shop. With the right attitude, a little creativity, and an open mind, dressing for pennies is possible. I will share with you tips and tricks on how to successfully shop secondhand.

So this weekend, I headed home to the burbs for T-giving. My good friend and I, having access to an automobile for the weekend, took complete advantage of visiting our favorite Value Villages.

What happend next must have been a serious Turkey miracle. Sitting in the shoe section of VV boutique was a pair of old school, LA Gear, kicks that have never been worn (tags still on them). That’s right, a perfect pair of sneakers completely designed for the aerobics lover (I’m sure Jane Fonda had a pair herself).

I’ve written about my friend Meg before and her amazing sense of style, so it’s not surprising that I would feature her again! She recently moved into a new pad and is on the verge of decorating it. Ever detail is looked at with the utmost detail, including the light fixtures. She decided to hit up Value Village to find something that would match her room. She found two potentials costing her 2 bucks each. She decided to go with the 2nd version and will use the other one to as a utensil holder. I love her creativity!

My amazing friend, Kajsa, in Stockholm. She is rocking this amazing retro jacket that she bought earlier that day from Beyond Retro. I love it, but more importantly, I am loving how she is pulling it off.
