You don’t need a million to look like a million. I am living proof after spending my whole life winging my way through the world of Fashion on a budget..And now it’s time for me to share with you my lifelong secrets of turning pre-loved pieces into premium looks for less.
As a child, I grew up in secondhand gear. My adult life has since gone on to center around the world of thrifting.
The truth is, I moved to NYC to pursue my dreams of TV presenting with nothing more than a suitcase of secondhand clothes. I returned 15 years later with a book full of memories and experiences, but credit card debt up to my eyeballs; never once did I splurge on clothes; instead, it’s just the cost of living in the US… dreams are built on credit)
After a downward spiral of battling with anxiety and no longer feeling happy, I decided to move back to the UK.
I returned with nothing more than the suitcase I left with.
Not only did I need to rebuild my life, but I also had to rebuild my closet fast but as always, on a budget.
For years, I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice regarding Fashion. I’ve worked as a Journalist, TV Presenter, Fashion Analyst, and Content Creator. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about the secondhand world of Fashion and how it can benefit so many different types of people.
I founded Secondhandstyling to prove how fashion and style should be accessible to all, no matter the cost. Take some time to explore the blog, shop our online collection and visit us at the Secondhand Styling Studio in Knutsford.
