GUEST POST: Thrifting Tips & Inspiration from Danielle

Today, we've got a guest post from one of my favorite bloggers, Danielle! Take it away...

Hi! My name's Danielle and I'm so excited to be guest blogging at Lily Among Thorns today! My blog Goodwillista is dedicated to inspiring others that you don't have to spend much to look great! I love thrifting and bargain shopping, and on Goodwillista I show off my awesome finds.

One of my favorite and best value finds would be this Michael Kors dress. I got it at the Goodwill for $4.99! I knew MK was an expensive brand, but I looked up his dresses and they ranged from $130 to over $5000!! So man I got a steal.
Michael Kors Dress: Goodwill $4.99
Tights: Old
Shoes: Rack Room Shoes $35.00
Total Outfit Cost: $39.99

Another one of my favorite thrifted finds would be this little black blazer.  I found it at the Goodwill for only $3.49, and it fits me so perfectly.  I get so much wear out of it.  It's definitely a staple in my closet.  Thrift stores are a great place to get staples!
Dress: Goodwill $4.99
Blazer: Goodwill $3.49
Scarf: Gift
Tights: Target Old
Booties: $20.00 (Your first pair is 1/2 off)
Necklace: Thrift Store $0.49
Belt: Goodwill $0.99
Total Outfit Cost: $29.96

So I've got some thrifting tips for YOU :)

1. Size doesn't matter.
Whether you're searching through the endless racks of clothing at the Goodwill or shopping the clearance rack at TJ Maxx, don't worry about looking at the size on the tag! Since the items are so cheap, it's okay if they don't fit exactly right. And sometimes some items are at thrift stores because of the size. For example, the sweater I have on above is an XL... I am a small/medium. My guess is that the person who originally purchased it dried it in the dryer and it obviously shrunk! And since it is just a tad too big, I added a belt, and voila! This XL sweater is now a small!

2. Follow Goodwillista!  Okay okay, so I only have one thrifting tip for you today, you'll have to follow me over at Goodwillista to find out the rest! Thank you for reading :)

Thank you so much for guest posting for me, Danielle! Isn't she lovely? I just love getting thrifting inspiration from the Goodwillista. It really gives me hope that someday I will find an amazing Michael Kors dress for $4.99 like Danielle did! Wowzers! That's what I LOVE about thrifting...have a blessed day ladies!
