This month’s thrift theme is SUEDE!
Remember when so many of us got fully dressed every single day? Gasp! If you’ve been in lounge wear for several months and miss your closet, we’re sharing tips on getting dressed while working from home.
Growing up in the Middle East, certain staple items like spices, breads, and cheeses were always stocked in our pantries and refrigerators. That’s why specialty and gourmet food stores and markets are extremely valuable in the United States. Arabs frequent these stores to stock up on foods and ingredients that remind us of home.
We discuss this month’s #12MonthsofThrifing prompt: straw & wicker bags: why we love them, how to style them, and why you should thrift them.
I found this vintage off the shoulder dress at the Salvation Army recently. I tried to challenge myself to modernize it with trendy accessories and I just couldn’t get myself to do it. I kept falling back on older feminine pieces like my straw bag and pink Prada shoes.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the best way to find all the good stuff at thrift stores is to go often. So now that we have some extra time on our hands, we did a little experiment and went to Goodwill five days in a row. We share the lessons we learned, the things we found, and whether or not we’d do it again.
“The bins” are exactly that. Bins of secondhand clothing, toys, electronics, housewares, books – you name it – at incredibly discounted prices where items are sold by the pound.
I recently found these Talbots pineapple sandals and because they are a past season style it got me thinking about how I never thought twice about wearing past season clothes, even as a kid.
My first rule for fashion: forget the rules!
From classic to bold, prints and patterns can completely transform an outfit.
