THRIFTING

My Style Session with Tyechia

By  | 

Recently I shopped for and styled a young lady named Tyechia who wanted to give her wardrobe an update as we head into spring. Like many, she was on a budget.  So we started out thrifting; and then added a few staple pieces like a denim vest, colorful pants, and an animal print top that can all be mixed and matched for endless outfits.  We started with a limit of $150, and though she only requested 5 outfits, I was able to stretch it into 15 (I think that may be a record).  For several of the shots, I grabbed a few of my accessories and some shoes to point her in the right “style” direction visually, to assist in showing her how to get the “look.” Here’s some of what she got!
