We may come across cool pieces of clothing in thrift shops, but they often turn out to be 3-4 sizes bigger than we need. For many customers, this situation may be a reason to refuse to buy these clothes, but the people from our compilation don’t see this as a problem. They’re sure that they can transform anything. Even old dresses and oversized men shirts can be turned into stylish outfits that don’t look like anything else.

“I bought this dress for $1. It had been hanging in my closet for several weeks before I decided to finally change it.”
