Hello! I shop at vintage stores, thrift stores, consignment places. As of 2012 I stopped shopping at the mall because clothes are just too expensive to there. I discovered that the malls get all of her clothes from wholesale websites the actually charge nothing more than about 5 US dollars for the items they sell. I am interested in vintage clothing anyhow especially designer vintage, so I buy a lot of my clothing from thrift stores. The clothes are cheaper, unique, and sometimes even one of a kind.
I say stop buying mainstream, i.e clothes from Zara, Target, Forever 21, etc. These clothes are marked up way past their required retail value. Websites like Aliexpress, China Wholesale, etc. WILL BE SELLING THE EXACT SAME THINGS FOR THEIR FACTORY COST! Your local thridt store will usually only charge 99 cent to $10 for good clothing, even fir designer labels. Most of my Chanel, YSL, and even Dior have come from places like the Goodwill. Consignment is different because they usually only buy lightly worn designer clothes (sometimes even raiding thrift stores) and are only out for profit, so their prices will range. Some great stores like this will have extremely nice things, so if you have the money go for it!
As for my style, I only wear what I want. I am interested in unique, crazy clothing that nobody around me will wear. Not to say that my clothing is ugly, but I love glamour, vintage, along side just simply beautiful clothing. I am very price oriented, but if a piece is well made I will pay good money for it. I want to look good 24-7, so I take time ti pick through thrift stores for unique things. I buy some things online that are not sold in stores around me, like certain earrings and even a V Stiviano sport visor recently. My shoes come from places like T.J.Maxx where they sell unique items, usually desinger, for half price.
