Fatshion Insider. Kellie has managed to thrift some pretty amazing pieces, get to know her as she shares and weighs in on thrifting.
What do you enjoy most about thrifting?
I'm one of those people who actually loves the hunt. I enjoy going through pieces to find that something special. Being able to find something that's one of a kind is an incredible feeling.
What are two tips you would give someone who's thrifting for the first time?
Tip 1: Always look through everything. If you only search in the plus size section or within your size, you will miss out on a bunch of great pieces. Tip 2: Dress for the occasion. That means easy pieces that will allow you to try things on. Everyone always tells you to ignore tags and sizes, which is true but being able to slip a dress over your head etc. to check for fit helps take a lot of the guess work out of shopping in places that may not have a dressing room etc.
Tell us about your favorite thrifted find.
I don't know if I could pick only one but something that stands out is this gorgeous near mint condition vintage camel colored leather jacket with a cream colored rabbit collar. It was $25 and a total score. Another is an amazing vintage oversized 80's trench coat that you can tell came from an expensive department store. It has incredible leather details on the back and through out. It was $8!
Kellie, thanks for sharing such great tips, you've scored some fab finds! I love that black vintage dress, such great style! Isn't she fab?!
