Does thrift store shopping throw you into a panic? I know it’s a lot to sort through. Fear not, fellow fashionistas! We’ve figured it out with four easy steps.

1. Quality over Quantity!
Grab everything you like, but only buy the things you LOVE. Really? Do you need more clothes you kinda like?

2. Try on EVERYTHING.
The necklace you crave may not have any clasps. Keep searching. Patience pays off in this game. You are one step away from the next phenomenal piece.

3. Snatch it when you see it!
While you’re thinking about whether or not to try on the shirt you’re holding, so is the lady next to you! DON’T LET HER GET YOUR SHIRT!

4. Get what you can.
Don’t try and find a complete outfit. If you end up with one, that’s great. The point is to purchase pieces you love, then take them home. Eventually, you’ll create a wearable fashion collage!

Oh those politicians, claiming the recession is ending, but my purse knows the difference. Millions of us deal with student loan debt, and other monthly bills. What’s a girl to do? Throw style to the side? We think not. Become a frugal fashionista! In other words, embracing style doesn’t have to drain your bank account.
