Stretching Your Dollar

Investing in Your Wardrobe Without Compromising Your Style

1. It's possible to show your unique style with nice clothes while also stretching your dollar

One's wardrobe says a lot about a person and it is important to dress to the occasion whether it be work or play while still expressing yourself. Building a wardrobe can be a costly expense but it's possible to show your unique style with nice clothes while also stretching your dollar.

2. A fun, sustainable way to build a high-quality and stylish wardrobe

Second-hand and vintage-style clothes are a fun, sustainable way to build a high-quality and stylish wardrobe without breaking the bank. Buying hand-made and second-hand also reduces the demand for new clothing production, which helps reduce waste and the environmental impact of the fashion industry.

3. Some pieces are simply better when they are second-hand

Some pieces are simply better when they are second-hand like worn denim and lived-in boots or leather that's softened over time. Get creative and add touches to your old favorites with patches, embroidery, and even natural flower colors transferred to fabric. Grab your old t-shirts, family vintage fabrics, or lace, and pull it all together into something new and memorable.

4. It was so perfectly her and absolutely gorgeous  

My sister, Haley, used a vintage dress, tablecloths, napkins, doilies, and other fabrics to create the most amazing vintage-style wedding dress. It was so perfectly her and absolutely gorgeous.  

5. Simple, wild, classic, colorful; don't be afraid to show your style

The best way to keep your wardrobe fresh is to look for either trendy or classic new pieces and match them with your favorite vintage or second-hand pieces, like a new dress with your grandma's old leather jacket or a recently purchased foundation piece with a skirt made from vintage fabrics. Simple, wild, classic, colorful; don't be afraid to show your style and your financial fashion savvy at the same time.

6. Some of our favorite places for unique or thrifted styles are:

Brigitte Hart Dresses, Marigold Boutique, Coastal Collective, and Freestyle Clothing Exchange.
