abercrombie & thrift

This is a guide on how to shop, and some of my best finds and how much I got them for.
Usually I see people on sites like lookbook, or on tumblr, and they say they thrifted and item, I think to myself, "There isn't anywhere around me that sells items like that! All the stores around here are terrible!"


There are probably thrift stores or consignment stores where you can find items like I have, and maybe even better! All you have to do is look. One mans trash is another man's treasure. And a lot of thrift stores are considered trash, but once you have a look inside, you'll realize that they have better finds than you think.

I think SOPA ███████████████

basics of outfit construction

Top to bottom, this is my idealistic idea of what I think subconsciously goes through people's minds when they pick out an outfit.

Shirt/ Top: Mood of the outfit. The top is usually the centerpiece of the outfit. Even if the top isn't the centerpiece, it still sets the mood by being neutral and making the main piece of the outfit stand out. For example:

[top is the centerpiece]

[top is neutral and accessories are the centerpiece]

Bottom/ Pants/ Skirt/ Dress: The environment the outfit is being worn in. Jeans imply a casual environment, very short skirts imply parties, dress pants/ trousers imply a work environment.

[ example of environment based bottomwear]

Shoes/ Footwear: What is being accomplished with the outfit. If its combat boots, the outfit is trying to accomplish being a rebel. If its shiny and glittery flats, it depends on the rest of the outfit.

the sneakers imply casual, even though the rest of the outfit is slightly dressy or rebellious (minus the hat)

Accessories/ Necklaces/ Bracelets: Centerpiece OR Balance: Accessories can make or break an outfit. In most cases, they never break an outfit, unless overused to the point that the outfit is gaudy.

Outerwear/ Jackets/ Cardigans: Balance within the outfit. If the top is too strong, the jacket tones it down. Outerwear is usually environment based, but also works with the outfit to accomplish a mood.

Imbalance is also a mood that can be set, for example, below.


**All pieces work in harmony. With each added or substituted piece, the mood of the outfit is changed.

exceptions to the rule:

Obviously a dress isn't a top and a bottom, its the top AND the bottom.
However, the dress can be considered the top, and the bottom can be whats worn on the legs, or the length of the dress.
Obviously, leggings will imply one thing, and a floor length dress implies another.

have you noticed?
its just theory.
