This week I visited Unique Thrift Store, and I was ready to conquer the endless racks of clothing.
Here are some tips for thrifting:
1. Take your time. Visit the thrift store when you know you have 2 or more hours to shop, because it can take some time to find clothing you like. You really have to look carefully.
2. When you find items you like, be sure to examine them for any tears, pulled threads, or smudges. Because the items are "used", the chances these elements may exist increases.
3. Try on your items. Most thrift stores have fitting rooms so you can be sure your clothes fit properly.

During my visit, I found the following items:
1 pair of Dockers pants (grey): $6.99
1 pair of New York & Company pants (dark grey): $6.99
1 Converse blouse (red): $5.99
2 Notations tank tops (floral and black &white): $3.99 each
Check out the discount on my receipt! I ended up saving an additional $7.00.
I was really excited to have gotten 5 items and only spend $20.95. You can be stylish while on a budget! After purchasing my items, I threw them into the washing machine according to the directions on the label.
4. Be sure to read the labels to know if you have to dry clean or machine wash your clothing.

I wore my hair in two big flat twists in the front and a puff in the back. I thought an updo was best to wear with both blouses.
Stay tuned for part 2 & 3 of the "Natural Girl Gone Thrift Shopping" series!
