Who says you’ve got to shell out the big bucks to look fantastic?
Yea, big time shops and designer retailers flood us with marketing to make us think great style only comes with hefty price tags. That is simply not the case!
In fact, we touched on this topic before in our look at consignment shops in Arlington.
Savvy shoppers know that in addition to consignment shops, thrift stores are great places of great finds from vintage looks to slightly loved designer apparel and more.
