25 People Who Got Their Clothes for Almost Nothing but Still Look Like a Million Bucks

Conscious consumption is becoming more and more popular around the world, and many people buy clothing at second-hand shops, thrift stores, and flea markets. Fortunately, you can find real treasures there: from branded jackets and vintage dresses to collectible items.

At Bright Side, we support this approach, and we think that if you are persistent enough and a bit lucky, you can find something really cool in these places.

“I thrifted this dress for $10! I’m in love with it.”

“Harry Potter Overalls from 2000. Pre-first movie release merchandise I’m guessing. So lucky to score these!”

“The cashier at the antique store said someone priced them wrong but sold them anyway!”

“I became the Prince of Bel-Air.”

“What about painting on thrifted handbags? I saw this purse and just felt it needed some Dugtrio!”

“Here’s my $12.99 win of the day.”

“I’ve been thrifting for years, but this has got to be my favorite sweater yet!”

“Brand new Dr. Martens in the box with tags just for $25. The girl who had them just didn’t want them. They are amazing and I am speechless.”

“I found this adorable Anthropologie dress — now I just have to wait for warmer days!”

“This dope snowsuit I snagged from an estate sale a few weeks ago”

“€5 each.”

“I collect vintage Tommy Hilfiger, and my favorite is the denim crest jacket.”

“I scored these today! I’m in my 50s but I needed to embrace my ’80s punk rock days!”

  • Bank? Oil change? Picking up a friend at the airport? Time to bust it out! I say wear that gorgeous dress wherever you want! Throw on a cardigan and boots and it’s instantly casual. Heels and it’s party style. It looks awesome on you. Wear it! © pastdancer / Reddit
