A League of My Own

If I haven't already emphasized it enough, thrift finds are the best finds. And here's the trick to thrifting for those who are still uncomfortable or unfamiliar with the idea: patience. At first, it does get pretty frustrating because you're browsing through what seems like endless racks of clothing, most of which are beyond outdated, and at some point you think to yourself, Why am I even in here? (I am guilty of this almost every single time). But really, you have to go in expecting not to find anything because when you do, it's one of the most satisfying shopping experiences, especially when you pay less than $10 for it. Which is why I am such a thrifting advocate because not only is it the most wallet-friendly alternative, but also because you'll find really unique pieces that you can proudly say is all your own. Best part is fashion recycles so you'll always find a way to style your finds into today's trends.

Anyways, that's how I came across this top and flannel button-down. I was looking for a varsity-type tee for a dance costume and within 10 minutes of searching the boys' section of a thrift store, I found this one. With just a snip, I managed to make it work for just $3. And I highly recommend finding flannels at thrift stores because this one happened to be a Forever 21 one but for $8 compared to the ones in Forever 21 for about $15. So I really encourage it! And because the entire outfit was very casual and streetwear, I decided to add a bit of girly flare with my favorite pair of heels.

Thanks for reading! I hope my thrift-shopping secrets helped :)

Thrift-happy,
Mai Sunshine

Style tip: Add a pop of color by tying a colored flannel around your waist to the monochrome outfit without taking away from the top or bottom.
