A New Way to Thrift

I’ve always loved vintage clothing; and there are so many treasures to be found in thrift stores, but stumbling upon great pieces that fit, especially when you’re plus sized, can be tricky.

When I discovered online thrifting for the first time recently (have I been living under a rock?) it was a real breath of fresh air. No more sifting through racks in search of gold amongst the pebbles… It was all right there in front of me, just a click away at divaXpress!

With sizes ranging from small to 3X, as well as accessories and shoes, divaXpress is my new favourite way to thrift!

I was lucky enough to be able to pick out three pieces, and I fell in love with them!!

The first was this fabulous, hunter green coat, reminiscent of every Canadian girl’s mum’s winter getup in the 90s.

I’m super obsessed with its giant fur trimmed hood, and I just love the fact that I probably would have found this coat very uncool as a teen, but now… It is just everything!!!

It’s seriously warm, too! Perfect for SWLA (shovelling while looking adorable, obvi). Haha!

Next, was this totally incredible, sequins covered, beaded, rhinestone bedazzled jean jacket, that somehow reminded me of something out of a tacky, old-school country music video, yet I just couldn’t live without! I mean… It’s so awesome!

There’s nothing quite like stepping out in a seriously embellished jean jacket, though.

This must be what Dolly Parton felt like in the 80s… Only fatter… And it’s glorious!

Lastly, this stunning, A-line, printed linen coat, has me channeling my inner Russian doll!

How gorge is this piece!? Everything about it is perfection!

Loving how well it pairs with my thigh-high boots from SexyPlus, too… Especially a foot deep in the snow! Hehee!

So definitely get online and do some thrifting from the comfort of your own home! I guarantee, you will not regret it!

Remember, you need to act fast when you find something you love, because just like with regular thrifting, when it comes to the online variety, the good stuff sells quickly! New pieces are usually posted daily, so there is always something new to check out! Happy online thrifting!!!
