We recently received this lovely note from one our readers.
“I can’t exactly remember how I came to stumble on your blog a few weeks ago but today I’m writing to thanks you girls.
Going through your blog has been amazingly inspiring for me. I used to thrift clothes for my kids (it has always seemed to me to be wasteful to buy new and full-priced garments that would only be worn for a short time before they are outgrown) but I had never done so for myself. I used to be a size 18, but after years of being frustrated with myself I decided to grow up a bit and I’m now happy with being a size 10. Losing so much weight came with one major drawback: none of my clothes fit me. I had to build a new wardrobe quickly without having an extensive budget for it. That’s when the stars aligned and I realized by reading your blog that I could perfectly thrift for myself as well. I started doing so quite happily (I must say I really enjoy the “hunting spirit”) even though it’s not exactly easy. You see, in my country the huge thrift stores you show on your blog don’t exist. We have a few second-hand shops and quite a lot of garage sale, carboot sales and that sort of things. Anyhow, I have managed to buy some clothes I’m very happy with, and for a fraction of their original price. The find that made me absolutely giddy happened last week at a rummaging sale where I scored two genuine Hermes silk scarves in mint condition for the equivalent of 2.50USD.
I can only imagine how time-consuming maintaining a blog such as your can be and I really want to let you know how thankful I am for your dedication.“
We would like to say thank you so much for taking the time to write to us and let us know we are inspiring you to be thrifty. Of course we can all agree that she got a fantastic find with these Hermes scarves!
After seeing these gorgeous scarves, we decided to look at Pinterest to get some ideas on how to wear them.
Another option that we came across, would be to frame the scarves. This would be a lovely way to enjoy these beauties every single day!
Have you come across anything fabulous lately?
We would love to from you and we do take the time to personally answer your emails.
