  1. blue suits you beautifully. and those heels make a lovely combo together with your earrings and the bracelet. great colours!
    and I really enjoyed reading your tips though I don't actually shop like that. when I'm looking for something, I can't find it anyway, so I rather purchase things I like when I randomly notice something. and thrifting is my main way of shopping.

  2. Thanks for the tips :) I love the vest and the heels!

  3. These are great tips. I am a solo shopper myself :) Loving your shoes and the shades of blue in your outfit. Heather

  4. Blue is definitely your colour! Great tips, the shop alone one is the one I use the most. Its way easier & more productive to go shopping alone. On the flip side sometimes shopping with friends will introduce you to stores you dont usually go in.

  5. I totally shop alone, especially when I'm on a budget! These are great tips, Emily! And I love those shoes!
