Great tips! I am not skilled at all at DIY, so I take my stuff to a local (and cheap) tailor.

Also: bring hand sanitizer if you're gonna get down and dirty. I was with Heidi once and I swear we found this trench coat with what looked like stabbing blood all over the inside. Sick D:

Thank you for this! I was wondering where I could find a guide to shopping vintage. I can't wait for part two, that's my biggest dilema!

it's nice to find someone with the same vintage-shopping approach. and this store is a dream! where is it? i would do everything to go there! but i suppose it's too far away from italy, isn't it?

SO flippin' true. Rule #1 is the MOST IMPORTANT (at least to me). You have to realize that you can't always just find sweet stuff instantly...I'd also suggest going as often as possible...since the stuff changes and you never know what might be waiting for you. I'm excited to see your finds!

I was just thrifting last week. Awesome call with the men's and kid's section. I got a men's sweater and flannel and boy's school blazer. That's so funny that those were your sugguestions.

oh yes annabel! i do love this post as thrift stores now are my go-to shopping destination. i definitely have an issue with #2, but i'm working on it. i also wish i was better at DIY, because limited is exactly what i feel.
