thrifting


thrift stores haven't always been my thing. for the longest time, the idea of purchasing already used merchandise and decor kind of freaked me outshallow, I knowbut as I've gotten older, I've formed an appreciation for the generous who pass on their hand-me-downs, the buyers/merchandisers/store owners who find it & re-sell it, and the shoppers who come home with unique finds. (tbh, I also really love having the opportunity to buy things that no one else has.)

fortunately, jersey city has some of the best thrift shops...my favorite being very located downtown. the owners of the store are incredibly trendy and their assortment is always has the best denim, crewnecks, sweaters & graphic tees...much like the grungy american motorcycle one that's inside this pretty branded bag.

stay tuned to see how I style my new graphic tee! 'til then, here's me in my wool bomber that, despite its shocking color, I cannot stop wearing.

    1. I've learned that it's something you have to regularly do if you're a true thrifter! stopping in your favorite spot here & there is great, but persistence is key apparently. x
