Vintage/Thrift Expert

Vintage and Thrift Stores are often a hidden paradise of fashion potential. Our Vintage Fashion Expert Maddie guides our expeditions into the fashion past... and future!

Fashion Finds

Sometimes the perfect find is not to be found on a rack in some obscure vintage/thrift store. Sometimes the perfect find is where you least expect it: in the depths of your mother's and grandmother's closets and attics. There is a whole treasure trove of goodies to be found there. Simply ask politely if you may sort through her castaways and have fun. You may need to air out clothes and you will almost indefinitely have to wash them.

The beauty of this method is that girlies with a tight budget (like me!) will not have to spend their lunch money to have a new look. Also, these clothes have sentimental value; you may unearth the blouse your grandmother wore on her first date with your grandfather or the platforms that your mother used to wear when she went clubbing. Ask your grandmother and your mother about the clothes that you take away. They may have a history that will surprise you, and it will be a quality bonding experience for you both.

Happy Hunting! :)
