Last month I announced that friend, blogger, and Cleveland Flea vendor Katie and I will be starting a Thrift Challenge and we’re so excited to share the details with you and preview the first challenge!
So what is it? Once a month, Katie asks me to replicate an outfit she loves using thrifted items only. I will style the look and of course add my own flare to it. In turn, I challenge Katie to re-create a home decor concept I love, find housewares, or make a DIY craft using thrifted items only.
Why? Because thrifting can be for everyone. We want to encourage readers to thrift and prove that you can do it with an idea in mind. Sure, sometimes you score gems you never knew you were looking for but thrifting isn’t all just at random.
When: Once a month we will preview the item and then share the final post.
Where: Here on Dina’s Days and on Something To Be Found.
The first challenge will be live at the end of this month. Katie challenged me to replicate this adorable look from Shalice Noel. She has one of the most stylish Instagram feeds and we happened to stumble upon this look on Pinterest. Head over to Katie’s blog to see what I asked her to recreate. I can’t wait to see how she put hers own spin on the project.
As the challenge evolves we hope to keep it exciting for both us and our readers. Don’t be surprised if you see a switch in the roles or if we ask you to join in on the fun! Who knows, the next thrift challenge may be live…in a real thrift store…ahem…ahem.
