i have always been a savvy shopper. ever since i can remember i have HATED paying a lot of money for clothes. i remember going to the mall with friends and they would shop at banana republic, j crew, nordstrom and buy tops for like $40. maybe to you that doesn't seem like that much, but i always thought it was way over priced. i would shop at the cheaper stores like forever 21 and target.
i never used to shop at thrift stores. i always thought they were so gross and i couldn't figure out why anyone would ever shop there. the only times i ever stepped foot into a thrift store was to find goofy outfits for parties or halloween.
then i met patrick. we began dating and every once in a while he would want to go to a thrift store. i would go along just so i could spend some time with the hottie, but never really cared about looking around that much because i thought i would never find anything.
eventually, however, i began to find some really good stuff! i was amazed with what people give away. it only took a few good trips of finding some really good stuff and i was hooked. i RARELY ever shop anywhere else. most of the time i can't really remember the last time i went to the mall. and when i do go to the mall, i don't really buy anything because i can't justify spending so much money on clothes when i can dress just as cute by getting my wardrobe from second hand stores.
so here's to you, you lovely little thrift stores that have so many fabulous gems that i dream about and can't wait to get my hands on......I LOVE YOU!
happy thrifting :)
