No matter what I go to the thrift store for, I’m always keeping an eye out for some specific items. They are staples in my closet and so versatile to help build out your wardrobe. These are the 5 items you should always thrift.
- Vintage Levis
Never not looking for vintage Levis. I always tell women to check the men’s section because the fit is different and can sometimes be more flattering or comfortable depending.

- Oversized Blazer
I love oversized blazers in wool, herringbone or a crisp linen. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know about my love for vintage Ralph Lauren blazers – the embroidery on them can’t be beat.

I always check the dress section of thrift stores because there’s always a good amount to choose from. I look for fabric in prints, linen or silk and the more ruffles or details that make it unique, the better! Dresses are so easy to have tailored to your exact body, so if the sizing is a bit off, don’t be afraid to grab it and take it to a tailor.
The leather belts with hand painting, beading or any other kind of unique features are a must buy for me. These finds are something that will set your outfits apart and offer an easy way to spice up a lowkey outfit.

- Cheeky T-shirts
Considering my version of sweats is jeans and a t-shirt, I’m always checking the kid’s and men’s section for fun and different styles to spice up my look. Buy them oversized, fitted or cut them up when you take them home to suit whatever style you’re looking for.
