My Instagram Pet Peeves

Instagram is a fun platform, and probably my favorite social media outlet right now, but it provokes a decent amount of eye rolls. I feel like I see a lot of annoying behaviors on my feed coming from people who are desperate to grow their follower count, but don’t go about it in the best way.

How Do You Resell Thrifted Clothes?

Thrifting, while both trendy and affordable, is extremely time-consuming. Some people don’t want to spend the time going through endless Goodwill racks, some feel like they never strike gold at the thrift store and some say the thrift stores near them are far and few between. If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck, because there are others who have done all the hard work for you.

It's Okay to Say "No"

Confession time: I’m a people-pleaser. I have this need to make people like me, which often results in me bending over backwards for people who don’t always deserve or appreciate it. Basically, this behavior turned me into a “yes woman.”

Tips & Tricks For Thrift Shopping

I love thrifting. I’ve worn thrifted pieces to major events, like my college graduation and my best friend’s father’s wedding. More than half of my closet is thrifted, and I’m trying to get it to 80-100% thrifted in the near future. Some of my favorite items of clothing are the ones I had to dig for in a secondhand or consignment store.

In this post, I’m going to talk about how I thrift, my tips and tricks, and what I wish I knew starting out, as well as answer some questions I got on Instagram with the help of a few friends!

Conscious Consumerism in September

Being a conscious consumer has been on my mind a lot lately. I want to be more purposeful with what I spend my money on and why. Both from a quantity standpoint - I feel like I own a lot of stuff and buy a lot of stuff on a weekly basis - but also from an environmental standpoint.

Thrifting Q&A: Lucy the Thrift Goddess

Thrift shopping has gotten more popular lately, but for some people, it’s not just a buzzword or a way to get the most trendy clothes, but a hobby. Hardcore thrifters are dedicated and they thrift often - because truly successful thrift shopping is about patience and strategy. The hunt of a thrift trip is exciting, especially if you’re passionate about fashion and style, like my friend Lucy. Lucy’s approach to thrifting inspires me because she is a very smart thrifter and plays with fashion in a creative way, mixing thrifted designer pieces with graphic tees from Target.
