7 Thrifted Pieces I'm (Still) Wearing


Thrifting has been a hobby of mine since at least high school.


There's something so satisfying to me about breathing new life into a piece someone else doesn't want anymore.


Some of these items are fairly "new to me." Others are finds that quickly became staples in my wardrobe that I've now had for YEARS. These pieces are versatile and durable. In some cases, I've made alterations as time went on, because I loved these items that much.


My advice for thrifting is: don't think too much about brands and sizes, or whether you found something in the men's or women's section. If you find a piece from a great brand you love and it fits perfectly, amazing. But otherwise, it's all about how you style it.
