A few tips:
* If you want to DIY a pair of jeans: shred, fray, distress, cut off the hem, etc. I highly recommend going to the thrift store to purchase a pair. Prices range from $3- $5 for denim jeans.
* Remember alterations are possible. Find something you love but it's too big, get it altered. Buttons missing, hem needs to be shorten or lengthen, no problem take it to your tailor.
* Ask about sale days. Goodwill has tag sales, where they attach color coded tags to items for a additional percentage off. Major score!
* Love a trend but don't want to pay a fortune for it to go out of style next season, thrift! Fringe, plaid, high waists and skinny scarfs are all the rage this season. Visit your local thrift store to try out a trend for less.
