If you guys follow me on Instagram, you know I love a good thrift find and I am constantly on the hunt. I started thrift and consignment shopping when I was in college, because well, I was broke and wasn't given a huge monthly stipend like some of my friends that came from money (which I am so grateful for and would never do it differently because it made me stick to a budget and appreciate the value of a dollar).
I always loved fashion and have had a strong sense of personal style since I was young, but in order to look the way I wanted to in college, I had to thrift and consignment shop to find my clothes. I fell in LOVE! If you search long enough, there are amazing finds out there, it just takes patience! I love stores like Crossroads and Wasteland, but there are second hand stores all over the place. You just gotta give them a try and see if they carry current and quality items.
Over the years as our careers have become more stable and have allowed more flexibility financially, I am able to buy some things that are more of an investment. I will never give up thrifting though, its just a smart way to shop. FOR INSTANCE, I found this robe that is currently full priced on Revolve with the tags on!
I am in love with the color, pattern, and feel of this robe by L'academie (that also comes in a floral pattern).I wish I could find you guys the same deal on this robe that I got, but you know how thrifting goes! Luck of the draw): but I'm secretly happy about it! haha #sorrynotsorry.
I love this casual look and am in love with these AGOLDE jeans. They are perfect dressed up or down. They are California casual at its best, and that's my absolute favorite way to dress...of course mixed with something eclectic. I love this look and highly recommend getting this robe if you like the robe or kimono look! Its amazing. Details and more pics below!
