while i would normally be all for thrifting, it is not a move i can support online simply because you need to try everything on in a consignment shop; wear (how many holes/rips/tears does the item have?) can only be seen in person and many thrifted items need slight repairs or tailoring. in that same vein, you cannot guarantee fit when ordering online, but you can have a better idea from a retailer’s size guidelines.

when it comes to making a sundress evening approp, my suggestion is to spice up your accessories — footwear, handbag, and makeup. add a smokey eye or bold lip! switch your tote to a clutch! slip on some heels! subtle changes will make a big difference.
