Using Moodboards For Vintage Shopping

Have you found yourself in a thrift store with intentions of finding the perfect pieces that all your friends will envy, only to leave with nothing but a headache from being overwhelmed by it all? And on top of that, little to zero clothes?  No worries, this happens to the best of us.  

I have a simple suggestion to help you have a game plan the next time you go: 

Create a mood board.  It will help you spot out pieces that you are looking for without having to go through every item in the store while adding to your vintage clothing stash!

1. Hop on Pinterest to find the pieces or outfits that make you swoon. Create a board and pin away.

2. Decide on a color palette for said style mood board.  This helps you hone in on certain sections in a store. Find your colors, find your pieces. 

3. Save the moodboard image on your phone. Go to your vintage store and find those sustainable wardrobe gems! 

Next time you are out shopping have your mood board in hand (aka on your phone) to make your shopping experience more successful! 

Yours in sustainable style,
