First of all, if you look back to some of my other fashion posts (here and here), you will know I have a passion for shopping on a budget. There is absolutely no reason you should have to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks. Most of my daily outfits (including what I post on here) are extremely budget friendly, and I very rarely spend more than $15 on any particular item of clothing. With that being said, majority of the things in my closet are great quality as well as great price.
One of my biggest secrets to this success involves a local chain of consignment stores by the name of Daisy Exchange. People bring back their clean and gently used items to earn money back, and they can be purchased at mere fractions of retail cost. I have found so many name brand items (sometimes even with tags on) for such a great price. Items like Victoria’s Secret/PINK, Express, BCBG, Lululemon, and American Eagle just to name a few. They also have their own lines of never worn clothing like the tank top work above. I got this beauty for $12.99, and I love it. It’s great quality and reps my state. Other “state” shirts like this would be at least double this cost.
Another thing I have to brag on is the customer service of this store. I have been shopping at Daisy for about ten years, and the managers/owners promote friendliness and great relationships with the customers, especially as I have watched the store grow up. Every time I enter they ask me how I am, how my career is, and always know my name as they do for so many others. They are always willing to help me look for anything I might need and even put outfits together when you need it. Oh they are also an adorable couple.
The store stays very trendy and I don’t worry about finding items that I know are in style and look good. If you have never tried consignment I recommend it, and if you are local go to one of the three locations NOW! I guarantee you will never go to the mall again.
Another company I love that represents OK so well is 405 Brewing Company. They are out of Norman, OK and make so many delicious and locally made brews. My favorite is the grapefruit sour, and my boyfriends favorite is the barley wine. You have your choice of a more sweet or a more hoppy and stronger brew. Check them out!
What are you favorite local spots (OKC or otherwise?) Let me know on the comments below!
