    I was just sitting at my desk thinking about how badly I want to start looking for fall/winter clothes but I have to pay RENT so that trumps everything. Thanks to this article I’m going thrifting tomorrow and hopefully I find some amazing things to pair with what I already have.

    I’ve been sitting around contemplating how in the world am I going to revamp my whole wardrobe on a strict budget bc lord knows it needs to be done. I used to thrift a lot as a teen. I don’t not know why on earth I stopped in the first place. This article came at the perfect time. Thrifting is on my to-do list for this week. Thank you for this Douby!

    This article refreshed everything I already knew. Thanks! I’m so inspired. I can’t tell you how sick I am of working my thankless job. I absolutely love thrifting and fashion. I’m a struggling entrepreneur (mostly because I get discouraged). I will be thrifting this weekend to expand my inventory. Thanks Ms. Douby.

    Great article. My wife is of Russia origin, and she loves to go to thrift shop. We need to make a trip to Brighton Beach, because there is a big Russian community there and lots of Russian shops too.

    There’s an art to thrifting and my goodness you’ve opened my eyes today! This was an amazing read and very informative. I am going to spend my Sunday now thrifting. Glad you’ve included your parents origin, that also has a lot to do with who you are and where you came from. It shows how beautifully you portrayed yourself! look forward to hearing more from you!!

    I’ve been a thrifter here and there. But I recently went hard core last year. I mostly shop for other poeple but it’s a lot of fun. I find a lot of good deals. You have a knack for it and style them very well. Great article!

    your style is amazing! I love the versatility and I’m a huge fan of the tomboy style. I used to thrift a lot but for some reason every since I moved to LA i’ve stopped (which doesn’t make any sense) this article makes me want to hit up a thrift store TODAY! love it!

    That’s what’s up. I have a friend who’s been doing this since JR high school. She could literally make something from nothing and look awesome. I go to the resale shops , sell my items to them and then get some money and then go to the yarn shop( I crochet) or buy new wardrobe at the thrift stores. Great article! Happy thrifting!

    Great article and lovely styling! Thrifters in NYC can also resale and trade at wonderful shops like People of 2morrow in Greenpoint. Highly recommend for vintage trades, beautiful selection and a gorgeous store x

  18. One of the sharpest dressed women that I have ever known was an avid thrifter. She would match a $4 skirt with inexpensive bad and pull off the whole look. I rock with it completely!
