Keep calm and thrift on? Can I keep it real with y’all? I am having the worst thrifting experience. Ok, maybe I am being a little dramatic but the struggle is real. I had the bright idea to bring essential clothing on my extending vacation…meaning a few pairs of pants, skirts, and exercise clothing. I envisioned I would thrift a few summer pieces (dresses, bags, hats) as well as tops to rotate my outfits. For me, thrifting pants/skirts are a little hard because of my hip to butt ratio!
Y’all this isn’t what I signed up for. While most of the thrift stores have an abundance of clothing it isn’t my style. I am finding a lot of winter items which doesn’t help me in the 99 degree weather. Nonetheless, I did find this top for $.99 at REGENESIS Thrift.
I paired it with a $4 skirt from Goodwill.
This is the final look. In conclusion, I have learned a valuable lesson…don’t depend on the thrift store! If you have some thrift stores I should try out list them below! I am in the Richmond/Petersburg Area!
