TBF Beauty Newsletter: Rock the Grandma Look!

We’ve always been big fans of vintage clothing because unlike buying couture, it’s a great way to ensure that your outfits will be unique without having to spend a fortune on them. Every season, at least one quirky designer or two will be inspired by the fashions of a previous era and then we, the eager fashionistas, get to either create a style based on said designers’ vintage-inspired items, or we can head to the local Salvation Army, garage sale or consignment store and create the look ourselves.

We’re well aware that it’s not as easy to find fabulous-condition vintage items as it was in the pre-grunge rock area (when thrifting was still socially unacceptable), but with a little patience and practice, occasionally bargains on discarded treasures can still be found.

    I am totally into the vintage look but prefer to try things on before I buy. Does anyone know any good shops around New York City that’s worth checking out? Thanks.

    I love thrift shopping! There is a Goodwill by my Mom’s house in the suburbs north of Seattle. I have found so many vintage coats there – all priced between $10-20.

    I got a dress similar to the one pictured at a local thrift store for 3$. I think if you are going to buy from a thrift store, it’s better to go to a physical one, because the ones online are usually created specifically for people looking for “trendy” clothing, and are therefore expensive.
