Let’s Go Thrift-ing: Bandana Scarf Tie and Denim

April 22, 2016

I absolutely love thrift, flea market, bargain hunting and second hand shopping. My proudest purchase was a Diane Von Furstenberg skirt I found 98% off at Nordstrom Rack, it was sold out at regular price of $498 at Barney’s. My first job was reselling and buying wholesale with my dad. There is no telling me anything different. One day I should do guide for the blog… but today I will tell you about my adventure to the thrift store in Bern!

Today I had to go to townhall (Gemeinde) and from the corner of my eye I saw what appeared to be a second hand shop. My heart skipped a beat. After taking care of business i wandered back looking for the direction I thought the bus passed. After wandering a bit because I have no sense of direction I found a second hand warehouse.

This is the first legit second hand store I have found in Switzerland. I went to a flea market a month ago and it smelled like pee and it was so dirty… I know you can find great things at flea markets and secondhand shops so I was really disappointed and thought that there was no chance of shopping how I love to since it soooo expensive here.

I was wrong!

Three items for $14.80!

made me want to skip down the street.

The best part about thrift shopping is you can find vintage or current styles so since I had already have a mental (wish)list of a few items I wanted for the summer I picked them up.

Neck Scarf -$2

Denim Jacket- $9

Off The Shoulder Blouse-$3 (not photographed)

More blog posts to come and I plan to shred and customize this jacket to be awesome. Maybe include #BiteMyFashion for a festival look!


Today I went all for the necktie look but to be honest I have been wearing bandanas and scarfs forever… so this is a trend I will be sticking to and the Thriftstore has tons for $2 so I can’t wait to pick up more for Paris next weekend!

tie_bandana_fashion_trend_bitemyfashionI love this red print scarf because it is similar to the bandana style but it is actually a bit of a floral print.


I love buttoning the bottom of the jacket behind the back that creates a cool and relaxed look.

So, how do you feel about bargain and thrift shopping? Do you have the patience for it or no? I know a lot of people hate digging and fighting for the bargains but I love it. #ShoppingismyCardio

    What for a great price, well done! I loved the scarf, because of the same reason – it looks like a bandana, but it’s not really a bandana, the print is different! I loved the skirt as well and I think you look beautiful! Oh no, a flea market with that smell? So good you found a nice store this time, that sells good items for good prices!

  36. Style Tomes says:

    The outfit is so cute! I’m totally with you about scouring for deals and buying thrift. I used to do that with my mom too! We would look for labels on deep discounts and resell.
