Ok..first of all...who loves thrift shopping? I feel like there are 2 types of people in this world: those of us who LOVE thrifting and those of us who love thrifting but don't want to admit it. Guess which one your girl is? There seems to be a weird stigma about thrift shopping. Like some people think that only poor people thrift shop. I even think some people think that thrift shops are dirty and have a weird smell (some do...but not all of them lol).
Thrifting (as I call it) is not just for poor people. Honestly, thrifting is shopping but better. Imagine getting a super cute dress that fits you perfectly that you already have the perfect pair of shoes to go with it at home (I like long sentences). NOW...imagine finding a super cute dress that fits you perfectly that you already have the perfect pair of shoes to go with it at home...for $4. You see how the first scenario made you smile, but the second scenario made you laugh and nod your head with excitement. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the power of thrifting. Now let's get into my weekend.
So as you probably already know, myself and my boyfriend Kayo Bracey are influencers. What this means is that we can't wear the same outfit on social media more than like twice and even then it has to be spaced out far enough where people aren't going to scroll that far down to see it again. So in order to make sure we have a robust enough wardrobe, we thrift shop! This past weekend, Kayo and I went to this nice, clean thrift shop in Greensboro, North Carolina. My budget was $30. I decided to focus on tops and dresses for 3 reasons: 1st, tops are cheaper. 2nd, dresses are cheaper because they are a whole outfit. 3rd, I can wear the same pants with a different top and y'all won't notice (Yeah I said it). I, needless to say, I went over my $30 limit...but only by like, $15, so I feel ok about that.
