This tip is not specific to thrifting but shopping in general. So many times, you look at something and it does not look pretty at all on the rack or display showcase. My suggestion is put it in your cart and try it out!
How many times when you’re thrifting, you’re on the fence on something and decide to put it back? Well, by the time you wanted to give it a try, it’s already gone! It might not look good on a hanger but a dress or pair of pants might just hug your curves in all the right places when you try it on!
One example is this green cloth necklace. It wasn’t exciting to look at beside the other sparkly necklaces in the display showcase. What attracted me is the color. And it looks like a casual necklace that I can wear all the time. I decided to give it a try and was glad that I did. It went home to me that day. I can’t remember the price but it’s probably in the $2-$3 price range.
Have you ever been surprised at how wonderful some clothes fit you when moments ago they were a blah on the rack?
