Living a second-hand lifestyle now-a-days means you’re savvy enough to know how to look amazing, while being financially practical. Let’s face it, most of us can’t go spend $80 on one shirt while milk costs $4 a gallon. So when we can score clothing for under $16 that’s still fashionable and fun, why not take advantage? Besides, the searching is half the adventure, with treasures hidden around every garment. Who wants first-hand when you can look this good and save?
