You’re a regular at your local consignment stores and are always able to find something in bottomless pit thrift store bins. Spending $30 on three items is a special occasion. You have a knack for putting together mis-matched clothing into #OOTD’s.
You pronounce Target like it’s French. Tar-JSHAAY. Quality and quantity go hand in hand. You aren’t going to murder that girl who’s wearing the same outfit as you, because what’s cute is cute and you got it at a great price.
You like your name brands but you’re not a fan of the price tag. A designer sample sale that starts at 6 am? You’re waiting in line with your home brewed coffee in a Starbucks tumbler. Going straight to the sale section when shopping online has become second nature to you.
You have your own store on Etsy where orders are piling in for your one-of-a-kind infinity wrap around bracelets, knit scarves, and custom graphic tees. Scissors and old clothes are your calling. The majority of your wardrobe is your original designs.
You don’t give a damn where your clothes are from, as long as you love them.
