Thrifty Throwbacks and a "New" Secondhand Romper

Head to Toe: Romper, River Island (thrifted) // Bag, Elephant's Trunk Flea Market // Sneakers, Puma

As you may know, most of my closet is made up of secondhand clothing. I thrifted this jumper at Mongers Market in Bridgeport this weekend. Not that I don't enjoy a good TJ Maxx shopping spree as much as the next girl, but I love getting more bang for my buck. Many of my followers expressed interest in getting some more tips about the method to thrifting madness. I'm working on a new post, but in the meantime, I wanted to provide a little reading material. I just did a story about the state of secondhand in Connecticut for Connecticut Magazine, where you can get advice from storeowners themselves.

I also posted my 10 Thrift Tips a few years back. (Okay it was 2013, and now I feel 1,000 years old.) In my new post, I'm planning on talking about shopping Goodwill versus high-end consignment shops and including some of my favorite places to buy secondhand in the greater NYC area. Anything else you want to know? Tell me in the comments!

  5. Oh such a cute romper! Ah yes you know I love shopping secondhand too, and I enjoy both the high end and the super cheap. You never know what you might find! Also yes, why does 2013 have to have been such a long time ago?

  11. Beautiful romper! I also like to buy in SH from time to time. Unfortunately my favourite SH shop here in Warsaw went bankrupt. They had awesome clothes directly from The U.K. and really cheap. I cannot figure out why they had to close it :(
