Get the Inside Scoop on Thrifting!

Who: Tran Huke of Tranish

What: Vintage floral dress and ’60s snakeskin purse to go along with it!

Where: “Both at Buffalo Exchange in Austin, TX”

How Much: $12 for dress, $10 for purse

When I Use It: “When I want to channel Betty Draper from Mad Men, or when my fashion nostalgia for the ever-classic ’60s takes over. It also makes for a picture perfect autumnal gathering.”

Shopping Tips: “Work at your favorite vintage store! I found this dress while I was on shift at Buffalo Exchange, grabbed it, put it on hold, modeled it for my fellow coworkers, and then it was mine by the end of my shift! Seriously though, if you can’t work at your fave place, it’s not a bad thing to get in good with the people who work there. People in fashion, by nature, love to style others, so they will love picking out amazing finds that come their way that might just be the perfect something you’ve been looking for your whole life.”

    Love all of it! Thrifting has always looked like something fun to do. However, living in a small town does pose some disadvantages, no thrift stores ) = *sigh*
