So although i may not have the time for it as often now, thrifting is certainly a skill i claim to own. After 4 years of running an online vintage clothing i really feel i have the art of patience, mixed with a keen eye, down to a T! How often i have friends say "But i never find anything in an thrift store" and i can go in with them and walk out with two bags full! Much of the craft is with the ability to think outside the box, want an over sized cardigan? Check out the mens section. Want a short dress? Dont be lazy and hem that beautiful vintage piece. Buy some leather polish, fabric spray and decent hand washing liquid and bring those beauties back to life! A little effort can go a long way and lead you to bringing back to life an absolute standout!
The best part being of Thrifting?
The chances of meeting someone dressed in the same outfit? Slim to none.
Back to the dress. I just wish that a brand would bring out a dress in this exact cut. From the tea length and the billowing chiffon, the elastic waist (soft hidden elastic) , the floaty sleeves and the v-neck with the cute tie. It really is the perfect cut for curves, yet a style i sadly think i will never walk into a store and be able to buy new. Time to work my sewing skills!
