How do you go about shopping secondhand outfits?
Do you buy everything secondhand? Are there specific pieces which you buy secondhand? I personally do it 50/50. Half of my closet has brand new and the other half is thrifted. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment box below this post!
Lets dig right in:
- Easier on your wallet
I’ve started with the most obvious of them all! I think the top reason most of the people shop second hand clothes is because they get to save some moola. Let’s agree, our budgets can be tight at times!
Ever wondered how much that second hand designer dress would cost when brand new? Second hand shopping is totally affordable especially if you love those high end pieces!
10$ for a dress and 5$ for a top, ain’t that just amazing! Explore the second hand stores in your area to see who has the best deals.
2. Unique pieces
It’s very unlikely to find someone with what you buy second hand!
Trends come and go but at times when a trend becomes a favorite to many, you are likely to see almost everyone wearing it!If you are the kind that hates entering a room and finding about 10 people wearing the same exact outfit as yours, then second hand clothing wont disappoint you.
3. You can easily win a “Jack Pot”
The most exciting part of shopping second hand, is that you just never know what you will find in the store! There are times you get stuff which are very gently used and still have tags on them.
There is a time i found a brand new dress which seemed like someone just wore it once for only $5.
There are lots of hidden goodies just waiting to be found.
4. Last longer
Second hand clothes last longer! Wait let me explain it!
Pre loved outfit have already been used and washed a couple if not a dozen times. That means they have already undergone all the possible shrinkages and fading if any.
On the flip side, how many times have you purchased a brand new which after just one washing was completely ruined? With second hand what you see is most likely what you will get
