This is the continuation of my monthly fashion post I started last month. It is a post of me styling stylish items I found while searching through the racks of the thrift store for good clothing. In this post I styled a dress with my all time fave blazer for a dress up look and without the blazer for a  dress down look.

This H&M dress was brand new and had the actual tag on it which was $40 but i got it for way less than this.

5 TIPS TO KNOW WHEN THRIFTING

In light of the just celebrated National thrift shop day, I will be sharing tips you should know when going thrift shopping.

  1. Dress in smart outfits which you can change clothes in asap because thrift store or stand don’t have changing room.
  2. Shop based on colour and personal material preference because there will be a lot of clothes to look through.
  3. Know what you want because there are a lot of options that are for good prices.
  4. Don’t buy a clothe just because it looks good or it should fit hence your closet will be a dumping ground.
  5. Try on each clothing you are buying and look through them carefully for defect.

I probably would have loved the dress more if it was a little bit puffy and a tiny belt around the waist will look good on the dress also.

    Your bag and shoes are so pretty. I’ll probably go for a look with the blazer, either to church, an interview or a presentation in school. Nice outfit btw 👍🏾😍
