Let's Hear it for the Boys

I personally love shopping in any shape or form. You can take me to a grocery store and I will still be excited. Any kind of shopping is always a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, but nothing can compare to thrift shopping.

Thrift stores have a very unique feel to them. You can compare it to treasure hunting. Don’t ever go to a thrift shop with certain expectations. Treat it like a jack-in-the-box—it is full of fun surprises. I believe that thrift shopping is a special skill. A spoonful of patience, a spoonful of taste and a dash of luck create a thrift shopping pro.

This Fashionisto knows his way around the thrift store. His outfit can be described as chic, effortless and edgy. The best part is that most of the items he wears cost as little as $1. For example, his black jeans are Levi’s that he found in a thrift store.

His sweater keeps him warm and fabulous; another great find for just $1. The pattern on the sweater keeps an outfit from being a little too simple. Red and blue stripes are the pop of color that any outfit needs. His jacket works with combat boots creating an edgy, yet very polished look. Brown boots are a bit unexpected, but still work perfectly with the rest of the outfit. We can definitely learn a thing or two from this Fashionisto. His style and thrift shopping skills are pretty impressive.

Hint: Don’t limit yourself by thinking that mixing black and brown is a taboo. Those days are over, so feel free to match a black pair of jeans with brown boots. It’s all up to you, so feel free experiment as much as you want.
