I wore a jumpsuit the other day that wasn't secondhand, & it came from an online retailer, which got me wondering 🤔, how my purchasing habits have changed since I launched Thrifty Virgo.
I checked my order history, & last fall 🍂 I ordered sixteen pieces from this retailer; a few pieces I ended up returning 👋🏻, some pieces were donated after a few wears, & a year later I only had three pieces remaining.
Last year at this time my closest was full fast fashion items that I did not wear. 😭 This year it is full of vintage, second-hand pieces that I wear, & cherish. ❤️
Do I still purchase clothes from said above retailer? Yes. But am I more conscious of the pieces I am purchasing? Of course.
All I am trying to say is before you go to that fast fashion retailer for an "it item" of the season, why don't you see what you can find at your favorite vintage or local thrift store? 🛒💨 You might find that you end up appreciating 💛 those secondhand pieces 👗 just a little bit more, I know I do.
I have gone ahead, & tagged a few of the second-hand retailers, & vintage stores that I have purchased clothing 👖from in the past year in hopes that it ✨inspires✨ you to do the same. #MidwestThrifter#ThriftedStyle#SecondhandClothes#ThriftyVirgo#SustainableFashion
Spent last night organizing my inventory into bins. It was a disaster...couldn’t take it anymore. Still have a whole rolling rack to steam, list, bag, and inventory. But I still want to get more inventory! There’s also hard goods that I have in a separate location. #thestruggleisreal
Simple but cute outfit for Christmas. Bonus: you can easily find these pieces already in your closet. The money you save on buying a new Christmas outfit from scratch is money you can put towards your gifting budget! 📸: @amygatenbyy
It took me forever, but I finally have a complete basket wall gallery. Pics to come, and some are for sale!! Stay tuned!
One of my favourite things to do with a transitional summer dress, is to pair it with a blouse or turtleneck when fall and winter hit. It makes for a great outfit, and it lets you get more wear out of your go-to pieces!
