Starting today, I will have a weekly Thursday feature called Fabuless Thrifter! The goal is to provide more thrifting inspiration, give you insight about thrifting and showcase how others style their favorite thrifted pieces.
Our first Fabuless Thrifter is Shakiyla of I Wanna Be Fierce. She is from New York and frequents thrift shops along 23rd street, namely the Goodwill, Salvation Army and Housing Works. She considers herself a newbie to thrifting but is already addicted to it!
She said the most exciting thing about thrifting is having the opportunity to find unique pieces that are timeless and cost friendly. " I just love it when someone says “oh where did you get that” and I can proudly answer, from a thriftshop," she said. "They are almost always surprised."
Her Fabuless Look:
- Blazer: H&M $17.95
- Necklace: Forever 21 $5.00
- Shirt: Thrifted $5.00
- Jeans: Forever 21 $15.00-17.00
- Shoes: Payless $20
- Bag: Gifted from Grandma
- Shades: Marc Jacobs Borrowed

One of my favorite pieces in this outfit would have to the bag. My Grandma gave me this bag about a year or two ago. I find myself reaching for it just about everytime I head out the door.
Her inspiration to wear this outfit:
This outfit creation was inspired by my need to try the pastel blocking trend. I saw so many bloggers and vloggers pull off the look with a hitch so I thought why don't I try it for myself.
Her most "fabuless" thrifted find:
One of my most adored “fabuless” finds would have to be my knitted black blazer adorned with gold buttons. It just so happens that this is one of the first items I purchased when I started thrifting. I chose it for its timeless appeal and its chanel esque look. Whenever I wear it, I always feel like I’m wearing it for the first time.
What do you think of Shakiyla's outfit and the way she styled it?
