Jeans: Forever 21
Jacket & Boots: Target
Tee Shirt: Urban Outfitters

I went to Value Village with my friend Sheldon. I think I have found my new favorite store. It was huge & had everything. I didn't have a lot of time to look through everything but I found a lot.

This jacket was only $2.65! I'm in love.
Everything I purchased today.
I bought a dress, 3 blazers, a leather jacket & a wool coat all for $28!

Tips on Going Thrifting

1. Dedicate at lot of time. You have to have time & patience.

2.You want to look through everything. You don't know what you might miss.

3. Pick up things that you might not normally wear. This is the time to have fun. You never know when you try something on it might actually look really good. And You would never know that until u try it on.

4. Look for imperfections. Everything in a thrift store is from a previous owner and my have stains or holes. And if it does have imperfections make sure it's something you are able to fix like a button missing.

5. Try everything on. Don't let the size on the tag fool you. Sizes have change through out the years. So make sure it fits. Fit is very important. If it doesn't fit don't buy it unless you are able to take it to a tailor. I'm too lazy for all that. lol So I only buy things that fit me perfectly.

Happy Thrifting!
