When I was a much younger lady, I had a lot less discretion (heck, didn’t we all?) I thrifted with reckless abandon, buying anything that vaguely looked good on me and was “on trend.” Which, trust me, meant a lot of embarrassing styles and questionably fitting clothes. So I made a rule for myself: I wasn’t buying anything unless one, I could see myself wearing it at least once a week and two, it fit me perfectly.
But when I spotted this Adrianna Papell blue paisley dress, all the rules were OUT THE WINDOW. Needed it, wanted it, had to have it, even though it was two sizes too big. Rules: they were meant to be broken.
So what should you do when your thrifted find doesn’t fit? I’ve got three tricks up my sleeves.
