Resale Inspired | Vintage Inspired Summer Pieces

Happy Monday!

I wanted to address a question that was presented to me via email over the weekend regarding finding vintage inspired Summer pieces.  The question was, “I’m a college student and would like to know how to find cute stuff to add to my preexisting wardrobe without breaking the bank?  I shop at thrift stores in DC and Virginia religiously; however, I never find vintage pieces like my friends. I want to reinvent myself over the summer, but I don’t know where to begin. Help!”  Jennifer B. –  Howard University

Great question, Jennifer!  What I love most about resale shopping is finding unique one-of-a-kind items that speak to my signature style.  Building your Spring/Summer wardrobe should be therapeutic because you are basically purchasing items for a fraction of the original price {that alone is winning, so no stressing}!  You can lighten your Spring/Summer looks and make a fashionable transition with ease by having a sound vision {a.k.a. resale wish list}, a set budget, and patience.  Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with color, patterns and various textures that you normally wouldn’t entertain. Spring/Summer weather and colors are my favorite and it’s the ideal time to switch up your style.  I personally prefer soft palettes when meeting with clients and having a bold/edgy look on date night and on the weekends.

In an effort to get your creative juices flowing, here are several vintage inspired Summer looks that you should be on the lookout for the next time you decide to resale shop.
