Since your a gorgeous thrifter from Australia, what is the most unique item/piece of clothing/ect. that you have found?
In your opinion, how do vintage pieces spice up your personal style? How does blending modern and vintage pieces add flair to your look?
I can take key items that I’m almost certain no body else has seen and mesh them with more common and on-trend items of clothing. Anything bold is a statement, I have found that most of my thrifted items are bold items and to me, mixing them with basics and bits and pieces is how I make my own personal statement. At the end of the day it makes the look something I am comfortable with because I know my style has a little something unique. At the end of the day, if you are comfortable in your skin, it shows, regardless of how much awesomeness you wear ;)
Ok, what is your staple thrifted piece/item you wear, carry, accessorize with on a weekly/daily basis? What is the first piece you go for when putting an outfit together?
When did you start thrifing? What fascinated you about the art of thrift?
What bit of advice would you give to first time thrifters when hunting for vintage pieces?
Wellthe cliché comment here would be ‘do not be afraid to try,’ my advice is rather to find something or a style you are comfortable with and go from there. But find a style you actually LIKE, not something that is on ‘trend’ or common. Yes, do not be afraid to try, but do realize that if you are confident in your self, your style will follow suit and you may start to find your eyes dart to pieces that you never thought you could pull off. Be patient and be kind, if the items are right they will find you and look fabulous. You will be fabulous.
