Do you ever see those transformation outfits that girls create from their thrift store finds? They buy these pieces, cut and stitch, and make them look totally different! Well kudos to those thrifty divas, because I can’t sow, though I wish that I could (anyone want to volunteer to teach me?).
For those of you who are like me, and aren’t that crafty, I have a simple thrift tips for you! When thrifting, it helps to look at things differently. For example, the other day I saw this floral vest. But the thing is, it isn’t a floral vest, it’s a button up dress. Instead of wearing it as a dress, I decided to unbutton it and make it into a long vest. There was no cutting or stitching to transform this piece!

Happy Monday, loves!
On my previous post, 10 Tips For Thrift Store Shopping, I shared some of my tips and tricks for thrift store shopping with you. With that in mind, I have been doing a little thinking lately. Environmental issues have always been important to me, and lately my interest in sustainable fashion has flared up (again)! I have had so much fun checking out my local thrift stores and consignment shops, and I have been thinking of a way that I can show my readers just how great thrift store outfits can be. So, I decided to create a thirty day challenge for myself! I will be posting thrift store find (both fashion pieces and home decor items) on my Instagram, Cute Teachings, for thirty days. Each outfit will have at least one thrift store find styled into it. I hope that this provides you with thrift store chic inspiration, and motivates you to shop sustainable! I created the hashtag #thritydaysofthrifting so please follow along and feel free to add to hashtag!
Thank you for reading, and stay tuned!
