All the looks are from thrift store?
Those who see outside of a fashion week have no idea what it represents! In addition to parades and new trends, street style looks express and even protest noble causes.
Every season I try to dare and show a little of my style. Last season I only bet on looks from Brazilian brands, to help our designers and to show that our Brazil also makes fashion, even within the square in which we live.
Anyone who knows my story knows that I love a good thrift store and that I even mine, regardless of where I am, whether in Brazil or Japan or New York. I love a unique and timeless piece.
This season, I decided to go deeper and show a little of the conscious consumption and the creative economy. ALL looks I used were minted in Japanese and American thrift stores. Do not believe it! But it’s true! They were shoes, pants, sweaters, handbags, skirts and dresses bought only in used stores. I waited for the end of season to share prices and where I bought the pieces. Curious, right!
My fashion week always starts at the charity event of The Nylon Project, which this time focuses on helping the homeless.
The look of the day was all from thrift shop: Blazer Banana Republic + Zara Pants + Gucci T-Shirt = $ 120. I bought my pants and shirt on a Harajuku thrift store and blazer on a Good Will in NYC.
The second day of parades I chose one piece, which already attracted attention by itself. A jumpsuit at a Harajuku thrift store for $25! The platform shoe is Stella McCartney.
For the third day I also used thrift shop looks. The Egoist Blouse + the Forever 21 Skirt cost $ 25 and were mined at a Harajuku thrift store. The Coach purse was also mined at a Japanese thrift store and cost $ 50. The shoe is Marc Jacobs and the chocker borrowed from Fran Galvão.
Looked entire Egoist panned at a thrift store in Harajuku for $ 25. Accessories minted at a New York thrift store for $ 7. Shoes Salvatore Ferragamo.
Fifth day already asks for comfort. I opted for a more chic look with a sneaker to give a break in the formality. Looked all panicked at a thrift store in Harajuku for $ 15.
Sixth day I opted for more comfort and still from a used store! The jacket is from a Beacon’s Closet in front of Parsons, this is the best of NYC and cost $ 20, the shirt and pants at a thrift store in Harajuku and left for $ 25.
The look of the day was super simple, Karl Lagerfeld shirt for Riachuelo and Vivienne Tam skirt panned at a thrift store in Harajuku for $ 20.
Last day of hard work and I would run and I bet on a dress paned at a Harajuku store that I paid $ 10.
Do you like the tips, the brands and the economy? I love it! hahahah … Many people tell me they can not find anything when they visit thrift stores. I’ll give some tips to make it easier, because not everyone is organized and fragrant.
The key is to have patience and a good look. You have to know your style well, so that you can pick up pieces that fit your daily routine.
Another tip is to visit the thrift stores every week! Every week new pieces arrive and you always find looks at first hand with a good price. I record a GUIDE to thrift stores in NYC and I’ll post it shortly for you guys.
