DIY Distressed Jeans + Thriftventure

And you say, thrifting is boring?

This is my second post about me writing how much I love rummaging clothes at a thrift store. 

Few months ago me and my sister went to the nearby thrift shop and it was madness cuz both of us came home with full bag of clothes. I got myself a total of 10 clothes! Cuhrazzyy i know. ๐Ÿ˜‚ One of those tops really caught my eyes but I don’t think I got a suitable pants to pair it with….until I found my old jeans.

I decided to DIY distressed this jeans with some guides from youtube lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

As I’ve mentioned on one of my post in this blog, about how not-so-creative I am, the outcome of the jeans was the proof. ๐Ÿ˜‚ There’s some mistakes on how it should be done from the way I cut, loosen the thread and so on. Gotta learn that techniques better baby! Well, it’s my first time doing this and I guess it’s not that bad. No?

I love this top! 

Thanks to my cool husband for being my personal photographer haha ๐Ÿ˜˜

My yesterday’s outfit of the day. Another top found from the thrift shop. I bet I have to pay more than RM40 just for the top if it’s not from a thrift shop. But this babyy, it costs me only RM3! ๐Ÿ™Œ imma happy gal.

It’s not about brand, designers or how expensive your clothes are. It’s about style. Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž So don’t call me cheap ๐Ÿ˜… I call it an adventure – thriftventure. ๐Ÿ‘—

My next mission is to find a new shoes/sneakers – brand new or thrift? Probably brand new. Shoes from the thrift are wayyy more expensive. You tell me why. ๐Ÿ˜

That’s all for today. Thanks so much for reading. ๐Ÿ˜˜

…down the road ๐ŸŽถ

As a full-time housewife, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to live a simple life (budgeting for a good life that is) yet still manage to dress up like a successful housewife cuz I’m not. lol. Lately, going to a thrift shop has become one of my favourite activities when I’m out of the house. Especially when my baby sister or besties are with me. It’s really nice and a lot more ‘easier’ when you got friends who share the same interest with you.

Those are some of my haul at the thrift store recently. Mostly casual tops. Some few items are from Cotton On, H&M, and Zara. Prices were crazy! RM6 for all of the above! Can you believe that? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I can’t even buy a single new top from the store with that price. I know, some of you might say it’s a secondhand trashy item. Well I don’t care as long as it’s wearable plus us ladies tends to get bored easily with our clothes anyway and the cycle will keep going on and on. On the other hand, saves a lot! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Stripes and plain basic tops are my main priority when in a thrift shop. Here’s a tip from me: Set a goal and details of what kind of style you’re looking for and you will save your time. For example, if you’re looking for a white or black plain basic top with a cotton material, you can ignore the other colours except for black and white. Simple as that. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Instead of paying RM49.90 for a single top, why not pay suuuuuper lower than that right? Well, of course, I do still buy from the common store for new clothes. It’s just, I’m having fun with this thrifty stuffs. And it’s an option after all. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Playing mix & match is fun!

A set of this style just costs me RM5. Super comfy casual look! ๐Ÿ˜

Costs me around RM8 for both top & bottom if I not mistaken.

So, do you go to the thrift shop? Let me know in the comment section below, I would love to visit your blog and read about your experiences or maybe some new tips.

Thanks for reading!
