The art of thrifting has become a common art amongst fashion bloggers. Whether it is looking for mom jeans to craft into shorts, or one of a kind pieces...thrifting has become a staple activity and these Jobless Betches are thrift shopping addicts. Our shoes are both products of consignment shopping, both found new, both found for bargain prices. The sandals Petersen A is wearing are brand new, from Bloomingdales but were $10 at a Junior League Consignment Store. It's all the luck of the thrift. Knowing the days that thrift stores restock merchandise is an important angle -- knowing when new items will be untouched, not looked over. However, thrift stores can take some time to replenish their inventory in a substantial amount. So when thrift stores are at bay the Jobless Betches play at the outlets. Outlet stores such as Saks Off Fifth and Nordstrom Rack are a best kept secret of ours. Not only are the prices right but the inventory is all actually overflow from Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom -- they aren't filled with lesser quality clothes manufactured for outlet stores only. We both found our pursues in outlet stores. Both quality pursues that could still be found in an actual Saks-Marc by Marc Jacobs section and Brahmin's online store -- for full price mind you.
The moral of the story is thrift stores and outlets can actually provide staple items for less.
