Hey y'all!

One thing I have trying to be more conscious of lately is where I shop and spend my money when it comes to the clothes I buy. Choosing to spend my money at stores that are ethical in terms of the workforce they hire as well as the quality of the clothes themselves is super important! 

To take it a step further - I have been trying to buy secondhand as much as possible. This is the best way to shop for clothes - since it has already been made and exists in the world. I have found a handful of vintage/consignment stores here in Dallas that have really great finds - but I also love to shop on sites like Etsy, Ebay, and Poshmark to find secondhand items, and specific brands and styles I love for a cheaper price, too! Today I wanted to share a few of my most recent finds to show you what kinds of things you can find if you want to get started shopping second-hand, too. 

Floral maxi dress. This one was a huge deal to me to find - its originally from Free People (its actually still in stock in a few colors here). I got it for $100 cheaper than the retail price and mine still had the tags on it. I find on Poshmark, lots of things still have tags so you are basically getting a brand new item. 

This is a Madewell courier blouse (you can find them here). I had been wanting one of these because I knew it was a staple I would wear often and throughout the whole year. I was able to find one for only $15 at a consignment shop so I was happy about that - the regular price is much higher, and its amazing quality. 

Vintage overalls. I love overalls so much and somehow didn't have short overalls for summer! These were absolutely perfect. These are vintage, but you can shop this pair that is really similar.

Floral embroidered sweatshirt. This one was the biggest 'splurge' and wasn't really a great deal, but it is a really sought-after style and is not in production anymore at the original retailer. So I didn't get a bargain good deal, but I think its so cute and so my style. (Here is a link to something similar!)

Denim kimono. This is an example of something that I wanted to match the 'look' of - but it ended up being Lucky Brand which is awesome. I paid less than $20 for it, and it still had the tags. Its such great quality and I wear it often! (Shop a similar version here). 

I hope you all enjoyed this post - I would love to share more of these if you like them. And, if you've found any really awesome thrift/secondhand finds, be sure to let me know in a comment below!
