I am following a few fashion channels on You Tube at the moment and because nothing beats procrastination as a hobby I have been seeking out more channels to add to my list.
One of my current favourites is The Fashion Citizen, it is hosted by two young women from America who seem to go thrifting about once a month. They both spend a fortune on shoes but draw the line at spending much more than a few dollars on items of clothing. I have to admit based on the looks they have been able to create I have slightly re-evaluated my opinion of thrifting as an approach to fashion.
I previously associated second-hand clothing with cheap clothes bought for dress up parties or costumes. I was aware that “vintage” resellers existed and that they were considered the high-end of the market but I don’t think I ever seriously considered them as an option. Primarily due to the fact that larger sizes are rarely available, quality and durability are hit and miss and prices are often higher than similar modern garments.
