How to Mix Second Hand and New Clothes

My favorite way to see people make their own style statement is with a combination new boutique clothes mixed with found second hand clothing and accessories.  This sweater/boot/bag combo is a great example.


As with all style, whether in your home, or in your closet - your number one goal is to tick these four essentials:

#1  Collect things you LOVE

#2 Buy things with colors that speak to you

#3 Choose timeless pieces

#4 Will it give you a great memory??


  If you stick to these four essentials and build your style around them then you will have a unique vogue that is always one-of-a-kind to YOU.   Here is how I built this outfit....

Beanies are essentials in our shop from October through March.  We always have a large color range and a solid stock of beanies, messy hair beanies, headbands, gloves and MORE.

In early fall I bought this sweater for myself during a thrift shop shopping spree.  It was one of those mornings that I woke up and hated everything in my closet.  And, even though I own a clothing boutique, my first instinct is still to hit thrift shops.  I probably bought 18 pieces of clothing for about $60 that day.  Washed it all up and kept about half of it, we will sell the rest in the shop.  I thought this sweater was a sure thing but when I put it on the cut was just not quite right.  Then I realized it's a Petite Large.  Which we all know I'm not a petite. Ha!!  So, it's a great sweater for someone for $18.

These Short Boots also started off in my closet after a day of antiquing.  I remember being in a completely shitty heart broken kind of mood that day and a day antiquing was the only cure.  When I saw these boots I knew they were better than any comfort food I could possibly find.  That was a couple of years ago and they've been good to me - I adore the color and shape of them.  But I rotate a lot and it is time for these babies to comfort the next soles.  They are size 10.5 womens and we have them priced at $68.

 And then the cowhide tote bag.  It's brand new and completely dreamy.  We just started carrying these leather and cowhide bags this past summer when re-opened after the covid remodel.  They are great quality, great prices and this bag is for sure one of my favorites at just $98.
