Most Helpful Girl
The only clothes I buy new are socks, underwear, bras and shoes. Everything else I get at second hand stores. I've never spent more than five dollars on a pair of jeans and four/five on a shirt. It just doesn't make sense to me. They're all the same, they're going to keep you warm and cover you up some just try to pretend they're better. I also hate wearing brand names. I really, really despise it. I don't want to be a walking billboard and I don't want people staring at me trying to read my shirt that really isn't that funny after thirty minutes.
I like looking professional and nice. I only own two pairs of jeans and any tshirts I have are either patterned or have a simple, elegant kind of picture on them. No shirt from a brand name store like American Eagle, A&F or any of those is going to look tidy and professional because they've got their logo plastered all over it.
Even if they didn't I could still find a nicer shirt for one tenth of the price at my local Savers. Not to mention Saver's has a lot more cool, unique and fun sh*t than any famous, brand name store does.1
