As soon as I saw it, I knew this $3 sweater was just thing to wear on cool autumn afternoons while pedaling my Pashley
to the market, library, etc.
When I divulge my thrift shopping ways, people are usually either repulsed or intrigued. Personally, I don't understand the perceived shame of it, especially since I'm often complimented on my fashion sense, and not counting shoes, most of my outfits cost less than $20.
Buying second hand is better for the environment, plus it supports charity, so shame is a real stretch for me. Buying mostly brand name clothes for dimes on the dollar has saved me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
I'd rather put my money into things that matter like a beautiful home, trips, my hobbies, and of course, savings :)
