Fashionable Friend Friday

This week's Fashionable Friend Friday is one of my favorite instagrammers, Margie Cooper of Thrift and Tell.  Everyday, Margie posts fabulous designer finds 
that she searches the internet for.  
Since she cannot buy everything for herself she happily shares them with her followers.  Over the past few months, I've seen Margie post Gucci, Chanel, Cartier, YSL and so many more amazing treasures at prices that you would not believe.  You really need to follow her.  Before you do here is Maggie account of how she started her Thrifty Site!!!!  Bon Weekend!!!









I have always loved fashion and hunting for deals. 
I started Thrift and Tell by accident really! I woke up 
one morning with "Thrift and Tell' in my head and 
checked to see if the username was already taken. 
Thankfully it was not and thus began Thrift and Tell. 
I really did not do anything with it until the fall of 2018, 
when a friend convinced me to start posting content. 
Since then, it's been such a fun process 
of getting to know others who are just as passionate 
about fashion at every price point. I post my weekly 
finds in my feed and some tips I have learned along 
the way after years of shopping. I also love hunting and 
since I cannot possibly buy all the good deals I find, 
I post those on my stories daily. It has become a fun 
thing for my followers, with many saying that they can't 
stop checking to see if I've posted more deals. I really 
get a kick out of others finding treasures via my stories 
and sharing the T&T love. 

In addition to loving finding great deals, I also love 
cleaning out my closet and selling my clothes. 
My favorite sites to sell on right now are Poshmark 
and Tradesy. I know a lot of people who have found 
great success selling through The RealReal, but I 
have not yet tried them for consigning. 
I am a HUGE shopper on The Real Real however. I find 
their descriptions to be accurate and of the hundreds of 
things I've bought over the last 5 years they've all been 
authentic.

My whole philosophy on shopping is that you should 
wear what you love, whether it's "in style" or not. 
I don't believe in buying a bunch of clothes just for 
the sake of a full closet. Instead, I love to mix highs 
and lows and choosing silhouettes that will stand the 
test of time. Rather than buying a bunch of J.Crew or 
Rebecca Minkoff bags, 
I recommend saving up for your dream Chanel 
bag (purchased second hand of course!). 
At the same time, if there is a trend (like the skinny 
sunglasses) that you really want to try out, there 
are great options at Target, Zara and other high-street 
brands to fill that need! 
Overall- whatever you're wearing- whether 
Chanel, Zara or Target- you should always 
feel your best 
and get the best possible price!
