Last Summer, a friend introduced me to a local clothing thrift store. It’s actually a consignment store with a curated collection of gently used clothing items. It’s arranged nicely with outfit styling, accessories, and shoes.
On that particular day, I was hunting for a dress for an upcoming wedding. This swing dress was my “find” that day.
However, I never ended up wearing it. I was on the fence over the “drapey” feature in the front .
I couldn’t decide it if was stylish or a bit strange. So, it’s been hanging in my closet (and survived a few major closet purges) unworn since last year.
But, the other day, the sun was shining bright and I was headed out for lunch with a friend.
I was looking for something cool & comfortable that would fit in at a casual/ beautiful restaurant with an ocean view.
I pulled this out of the closet and decided to take it for a test run.
The verdict? It worked great. (I even sat on the patio and introduced my snowy white legs to the sun again!)
So, here’s my question for you ~ Do you like to shop for clothes in consignment or thrift stores? I haven’t done it much, but I think I might venture there a little more often…Do you have any tips for me?
