Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. With the beginning of a new year, many of us have made resolutions. One of those may be to spend less money. One way you can stick to this resolution is by thrifting. I recently went thrifting and purchased eight items for a total of $26.79. One of my items was this vintage sweater. I absolutely loved the bright color, boat neck, embellishment of flowers, and being vintage this is one of kind. Actually, in this post's outfit everything is thrifted except for my H&M black skinny jeans. If you think you may like to try thrifting you may want to consider these things:

1. Be open to one size higher than your normal size. Just like when we wash things they make shrink a tad, so you may wear a medium instead of that regular small.(it is used)
2. Look in all areas of the store, people sometimes put their unwanted items anywhere.
3. Thrifting can be for everyone in your family. I picked up my daughter 2 items this trip.
4. Certain days of the week are better for thrifting. The day I went one of the stores had the whole store 50% off.
5. Keep all the items you are interested in buying in the cart until the end. If you set something down someone might pick it up and then it's gone.
6. Consider current trends or styles. 
7. Have an open mind and have fun.

This Forever 21 will be used in a future DIY.

These skinny jeans and Target sweater were two items I snagged for my daughter.
