Recently I have been very fond of thrift shopping. I’m not gonna lie I hated it at first!! I would walk into buffalo exchange, goodwill, and crossroads and never really found one thing that I liked. It was so overwhelming to me and the thought of spending hours to look for pieces I might like just to find out that it didn’t fit the way that I had hoped. I use to be pretty envious when I see other girls posting  all over IG of the cute things they would find and how cute everything looked on them.

As I changed my mindset on the things that I shop for now thrifting has become a lot more fun. When thrifting I look for more basic essentials that I am able to wear many different ways. I also try to find designer pieces that I can add to my closet.

Recently I went to the Rose Bowl flea market on sunday but if u guys follow me on ig @linhwinn then you already know that. The rose bowl is one of the biggest flea markets around the LA area and only happens the second sunday of every month. If you ever decide to go to this flea market then you better be prepared to wake up the crack of dawn and put on your most comfortable shoes. There is an entry fee and I believe it costs around $8.  Here the prices are pretty set and there is no such thing as bargaining and the majority of vendors take cash only!!! I always enjoy coming here because I never know what I will find. Below are some pictures I took while shopping and I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of my haul but maybe I’ll do a video for you guys next month when I go again.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!!!

    I like thrifting, although I don't always get lucky. I have yet to go to the Rose bowl flea market, but it is on my to do list. 🙂
