Thrifting is an art, plain and simple. Sometimes you’re born with an eye for potential and sometimes you have to learn by example or, in my case experience. I’ve bought plenty an acid wash jackets or high waisted jeans from the 80s, somehow thinking I had scored some amazing “cut rate comeback fashion” only to find the stuff fits weird, makes me look silly or worse. I have however scored some major finds that I still have today, like my sequin sweater collection and several slouchy boots I still love. Some people however just have major skill, whether they get lucky, get up earlier than everyone else or just see things people don’t, here are a few of them!
