How I Shop Now

June 30, 2014


 

How I Spend:

WHERE I LOOK: "I'm not very wealthy, but I'm obsessed with looking good, so I shop at thrift stores that have consistently qualitative merchandise, off-price stores, chain stores and trendy shops. Even though I've been a regular at Ross for a long time now a little while ago I went to T.J. Maxx and found a really nice plastic chain necklace and a black pullover sweater by Cable and Gauge, so I'm thinking of becoming a regular there too."

MAINTAINING A WARDROBE: "Over the years I've accumulated quite a bit from vintage clothes to second-hand finds and surplus store bargains so I have closets that're bulging at the seams. When I get dressed to go out I usually coordinate something from my extensive selection that either tells a story or personifies how I feel at the moment."

WHERE I SPLURGE: "Buying one thing that costs $20 is a luxury for me but if I really want something, and know I'll get a lot of wear out of it, I'll buy it. Recently I bought a black leather purse from www.amazon.com for about $70, a pair of Guess sneakers for $25.99 and a "Betsey" logo necklace for $24.99 from Ross so that was a splurge for me."
