Basically, the only rule I have is that the clothing has to be top quality. I look for natural materials like cotton, wool, cashmere, silk, satin, suede, linen - and usually these materials are really expensive. That's why thrifting allows me to wear exquisite materials for a fraction of the retail price.
I can afford to buy new clothes every month, but I chose not to. The reason why I feel so passionate about thrifting is that it really is a great way to save money, recycle, and most importantly create a unique personal style. Those pieces have history. There's only one piece of everything in a thrift store or pile of clothes at a flea market, so automatically, when you find something interesting it makes it that more special. It takes a good eye to find good pieces. It's harder and that's what I like about it. It's like a scavenger hunt! When I see stacks of clothes, I'm on a mission to find the best materials, cuts, colors, anything that will make an outfit pop.
