Test shots

Do you do this? I've recently realized that my smartphone camera can come in handy when thrifting. I use it if I'm on the fence or if I'm 90 percent sure I want to buy it and just want a little affirmation. I tried both of these shirts on yesterday (with my short(ish) shorts and Dr. Scholls shoes), and they both ended up coming home with me. The black top I'll probably wear on the regular during the summer. The purple sweater, I'll save for fall and pair with a skirt. (A thrifting truth: Don't just shop for the season you're in. You miss out!)

I smartphone too, it is a useful tool, although I usually have to come out of the changeroom to get enough light (our op-shops here keep the lights off in the change cubicles to save cash) and I hate feeling like a nutcase taking photos of myself in public!

I don't usually try on clothes in the store, but this is a good idea when I do:D I like that purple sweater a lot. Perfect for fall.

I totally do this too. Then i forget about them when I get home :) Really like that black top!

I never try things on when I'm thrifting. I know I should though. This is a really good idea!

I love both tops, but could see myself using the black one more.

Have a lovely day,

Winter Moon :)
