I've been trying to be thrifty lately since I'm saving up for my road trip this summer. The way I do this is by shopping at thrift stores. Although I really don't have that much patience looking through the racks, I'll find a piece here and there that just stand out. After buying them, I kind of get an idea of how I want to reconstruct it but not really. I forgot how I found this blog but it's amazing. Marisa from A New Dress A Day decided to stop buying new clothes for a year and spend only $1 a day to reconstruct something from flea markets, thrift stores, estate sales...etc. She has given me all kinds of awesome ideas so I posted some of my favorite outfits.
Her blog is definitely an inspiration for me. I've already reconstructed a few pieces of clothing myself.
