ThriftStyle: The Ultimate Bargain Shopper's Guide to Smart Fashion - Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

With this easy-to-use resource, savvy shoppers can cultivate upscale, upcycled wardrobes at thrift and consignment store prices.

Shoppers will learn to navigate the racks of their local consignment shop, spot name brands like Versace, Dior, and Burberry, select the best quality items, and repair secondhand clothes that need some love. Photo-filled chapters on thrifted handbags, jewelry, scarves, and other accessories show what's available and give tips for distinguishing quality items from fakes. Interviews with expert tailors, dry cleaners, shoe repair wizards, and fabric-dyeing professionals explain what makes a damaged piece of clothing worth renovating. Before-and-after photos show what can be done to refashion less-than-perfect finds.


My Review:

Ladies and gents, I've found a resource book you need to keep nearby at all times - ThriftStyle: The Ultimate Bargain Shopper's Guide to Smart Fashion.  Whether you consider yourself a fashionista or just someone who wants to purchase quality products at a decent price, this guide has it all covered. 

This book speaks to me on so many levels.  For one, all the fashion pieces pictured and talked about were found in thrift stores.  The majority of my clothing comes from thrift stores or at yard sales.  And I rarely pay full-price for anything.  

This shopper's guide is divided up into different sections, making it easy to reference what you are looking for.  It talks about the benefits of thrift shopping, navigating a store, finding your style, clues to quality, and much more.  If you ever want to know an extensive list of thrift stores to shop, this book has that as well.  I loved thrift shopping before reading this guide, but I'm ready to take it to a whole new level now that I'm armed with so much more information and tips. 

Win It!

One person will win ThriftStyle: The Ultimate Bargain Shopper's Guide to Smart Fashion.
