On trend-the man bag

This fall guys, why not take a note from Seinfeld and Joey from Friends and rock a man bag!? Whether for class, work or just for fun you can look ultra chic by carrying a man bag instead of having that crazy bulge in your pants, and NO I don’t mean that kind! I mean that type that your ultra fat wallet leaves in your back pocket.

The man bag ranges in styles from briefcases to messenger bags. They are ultra hip and… Continue

Thrift is evolving and becoming so much more than Victoria and I have ever dreamed of. As we both have been working harder and harder to develop this line it has become like a child to both of us. We have envisioned great things and as we work on the line it is flourishing into such positive things.

As you all know, we consider THRIFT unique for a multitude of reasons, but one in particular strikes so many chords with the Chicago public and… Continue

Keeping Vintage Fashion Eco-Friendly

Posted on January 4, 2009 at 6:21pm 1 Comment

As I was doing some trend research for the upcoming seasons I came across some great ideas for the upcoming seasons. The best of all these ideas was the idea of “Conservation Couture”. Conservation Couture can be seen in vintage work wear, eco-friendly and repurposeful products. As we all know, Mother Earth definitely needs some loving and we at Thrift think we are helping out with our creations. As Thrift continues its search for vintage finds to… Continue

Morning Ladies and Gents!!

I just wanted to introduce myself ( Jennifer ) and Victoria (my business partner) and tell you a little about who we are and why we are doing what we are doing-- pursuing our dreams. Me and Victoria met a little over 2 years ago at the Art Insitute as transfer students. As we grew closer we both realized that we had many things in common. Most importantly, a dream in common, to start our own fashion… Continue

Hey there Thrift. Thanks for the request. I went ahead and added you. Awesome Concept! I really like the idea of taking vintage pieces that may not be so fashionable and revitalizing them into something totally unique and fashionable. The green aspect of the whole process is the icing on the cake. Well hey I'm not sure how I can help since I'm like the opposite of the 1 of a kind concept but let me know. email me at and I'll do what I can. Thanks very much Thrift :o)

very clever... Keeping vintage going in limited additions, seems like a way to secure high price points?
I'd love to help you recreate...
Call me.
