For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a “thrifter.” I love watching videos and reading posts about people’s thrift finds and I’ve always been jealous.
My main goal is to be able to stop supporting “fast fashion” stores with questionable labor practices and wasteful processes.

Some of my inspiration for wanting to thrift here lately comes from YouTubers like Thrifters Anonymous, Alli Cherry and Abby Williamson. These women couldn’t be any more different but I am constantly checking in with them to see what kinds of videos they’re posting and if they can offer me some insight into the daunting task of thrifting. (Alli’s is more of an eco-friendly shopper, while Thrifters take on the task of thrifting on a budget, and Abby is just plain awesome with her fashion choices.)
I think that’s my main problem with thrifting, I’m almost scared to do it. Going into thrift stores always sounds like a wonderful, exciting idea but as soon as I am there, I get overwhelmed and anxious. I don’t know why except for maybe the fact that I’m just used to the typical organization of fast fashion/mall stores.
Anyway, I’m writing this post in hopes that I can reach the beauty/lifestyle/fashion community and see if anyone would be so kind as to offer me some advice for how to get into being comfortable with thrifting and maybe some tips on how to ease my way into it.
If you are one of those people and would like to offer me advice, I will gladly accept it! I look forward to the day where not only my beauty/skincare/health products are being purchased conscientiously, but my wardrobe as well.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Until next time! ❤
