If you follow me on instagram stories or on snapchat or chatsnap if you ask my dad you know how often I have gone thrifting this year. My love for thrifting has always been there but recently it is at an all time high. I love the hunt and adventure that always comes about while we are thrifting and antiquing. I decided to share this love of thrifting with this outfit taken in an amazing thrift store down in Mobile. Charlana the owner of Backflash Antiques has some amazing cool pieces.
I love finding something that cannot be replaced. Something that is unique and may have been the coolest thing at the time and now it may be one of the last ones out there.
I have always been a different/unique/odd ball kind of person. Heck I was the girl in high school that had no clue about the social life of my classmates because I lived in a dance studio all four years of my life. It wasn’t until I graduated I learned about the parties and …….. other things that went on. I was the girl that worked hard in school and then went to the studio and worked hard and I would do that four times a week and would spend part of my weekend in the studio. I did just boat nothing high schooler-ish in high school. With that being said, I never hated being the different one in high school. I never hated being the girl that did ballet and lived in a dance studio for what could have been 20 hours a week. I embraced it and to this day I am so thankful for it.
I embraced the uniqueness and that is what I love about thrifting. Finding that unique piece that basically no one else could have. Yes someone may have one but it is less likely. That is another reason I love sale shopping because most people would have been done with the piece by the time I get it. I love having that little extra something that makes things that much more interesting.
SO lets all be unique in our thrifted unique outfits! Oh and homes!
