TARTAN FROM DIY

TARTAN FROM DIY
 Remember this tartan, well maybe not.. but I once did a DIY HERE of how I got this outfit to fit considering it was from a thrift, well this is the outcome and that brings me to the post of today
 
last week while going through the post of princessaudu I stumbled on Thrifting tips HERE and thought it would be nice to share 
 
1. Dress comfortably 



 I advise that you wear a skirt.
In my experience most thrift stores don’t have a changing room. Trying on
clothes in public is a lot easier with a skirt.




2. Patience



Sifting through tons of clothes
requires a lot of patience so brace yourself or you might miss out on finding
gems




3. Budget



It’s easy to just buy things because
they are so cheap but I recommended budgeting to avoiding binging and buying unnecessary
items.

4. Potential



Keep in mind that a lot of items you
find might need to be tailored, don’t skip an item simply because it does not
fit right. See TheChicNatural YouTube channel for
ideas on how to upgrade thrift items.




5.  See it  Pick it 



Since thrift store are stocked with
unique pieces, if you see an items of interest, pick it up and decide later.
You don’t want to be in a situation where you leave something and go back to
find it gone
