The Art of Thrifting

I saw this woman on my way to a shoot, and I asked if I could take her photo. I love her sense of color and mixing of patterns. She told me that she buys everything at thrift stores.For more thrifting inspiration check out the video of Debra below.

Wonderful! The thrift stores can have such nice stuff. I have been buying beautiful vintage pieces from mine, WITH the union label in them for a $1. I get a complement every time I wear my black wool pencil skirt out, and it was only a buck!

Wow, thrift stores in NY are way, way better than we have in Wichita. I would be thrilled to shop in the store Debra was in. Thank you for sharing the video, it was great fun.

I can see why you just had to capture this lady. She wears colours well and I adore the way she flirts with colour, too.

I just found this blog, and I am in love. It's so inspiring to see older ladies have fun with fashion -- these women have more style than the majority of my peers! And Debra is a charm. The way she rocked that racy little dress with the orange boa was astounding!

That woman's outfit/nails/jewellery... it's all so good. That's exactly how I want to dress.

Terri said...

This woman's skirt is fabulous and I admire her bold pairing with an equally bright jacket.

Kelly-Ann said...

Well, I completely adore Debra :) I'd love to go shopping with her. And we're both long-term vegetarians with the same views on buying second hand fur and leather - thank god for that get out clause!

Love this blog, so glad to have found it.

Your site depicts the joy you have photographing these stylish women of advanced style. Please, more women of color though. Blessings to all.
