Styling Distressed Denim

On my last thrift shop visit, I scored really cool distressed denim. They have stars carved out and they fit like a glove! The brand is Pistola and never had I heard of it until now. I started researching and a new pair costs around $130. I got mine for less than $8! After washing them I immediately started thinking, how can I style them? 

How to Start Thrift Shopping

Today, someone asked me; "How do you find good pieces when you thrift?" "How do I know which pieces to shop for?" and then said, "I need your help!"  

Let's start by talking about why I ended up thrift shopping. I started thrift shopping back in college, I just loved the thrill of treasure hunting! Today, I still thrift shop for that reason but more so to be conscious about the environment. Nowadays, there is fast fashion everywhere, people wear pieces once and then toss them. I used to do that until I read a book about fast fashion and the consequences in the environment and in human lives. The name of the book is "Fashioopolis: Why what we wear matters". I encourage you to read it too, you will definitely have a different perspective on clothes.

Back to the initial question:
How to find good pieces?

Handbags under $500 from Fashionphile [Steal]

Dress: Topshop // Bag: YSL // Shoes: Delman (no longer available) similar here // Sunglasses: Amazon

I am always on the lookout for handbags, even though I don't buy any, I still love placing them on my wishlist, waiting for the price to lower. 90% of the time the handbag gets snatched by someone else that has more determination than me. I am currently looking for a nude bag or even a black, something I can wear with everything. So, I put together a list of cool handbags under $500. From Stella McCartney to Gucci, they all are in Very Good to Excellent Condition. Sometimes buying used/preowned handbags is the smartest and cheapest way. See if you like any before someone buys it.
