#SaveCost & #LookGood – Thrift Shopping Tips For Your OOTDs

It’s SHOPPING TIME! You happily go to a mall and scroll through a variety of clothes to spot your ‘One True Love’. When you finally find something that catches your eye, you take it off from the shelve and first thing you look for is the Price Tag!

Wait? RM140 for a new TOP? Seriously?

What you hear next is your heart breaking into pieces.

Look, we got to acknowledge that buying new clothes does give us an adrenaline rush. However, can we always afford to buy them at a retail price? Instead of burning a hole in your wallet, why don’t you try thrift shopping? There are several thrift shops in Malaysia that offers quality clothing at a very low price.

Imagine finding a Zara jacket at RM20 as compared to the original price, RM200....

Don't you think all the clothes look similar to the branded clothes you see in malls?

Since money can be a concern for millennials, why not opt for 2nd Hand and go green?

Besides, do you know that fashion wastage is one of the sources to environmental pollution? According to the United Nations Environment Program, the fashion industry is estimated to produce 10% of the world’s total carbon emission.  Can you imagine how much damage we are causing by buying new clothes every year?

Save the planet and go green! Sustainable fashion is the new living norm! Moreover, why waste your money to buy new clothes when it can only last about a year?
