Many women want to experience the thrill of thrifting but don't where to begin.
You may know a colleague who shows up to the office in fantastic wool & velvet blazers or sleek dresses & slacks all thrifted or even a friend who makes the KOOKy cool with the way she puts together her fantastic finds in a mesmerizing way.. Whatever the case online thrifting is a great way to start this experience without the hassle of searching through the endless racks at your local thrift store, figuring out the color coded sales tags or deciphering what is a good buy.
The myth that thrifting is only for the broke or low level wage earners is just that. The truth is some of the most fashionable women utilize vintage finds and gently used pieces as staples in their wardrobes because they add the Flavor of a true fashionista. & By buying PreLoved Pieces with Care you actually build a more Quality Closet That stands the Test of Time and Trends.
Think about it; when models or other famous people are snapped in their daily looks many of those we consider the most fashionable are the ones that dress outside the box of what most people would consider fashionable and They make the Look.
That is the thrill of Thrifting.
& Yes I know personally that for those of us established thrifters there is also the thrill of the hunt. The joy of going into a Goodwill or Fancy Consignment and finding a gem amongst the tons of crap. However as the world becomes more technologically Savvy so has our Shopping! If you can Shop at One of these Below Shops, Our Shop or any of the Thousands of Thrift/Vintage Retro Shops around the web Purchasing Quality Designer Contemporary & Vintage all in Premium Condition? Its Kinda UnSavvy to NOT at least Do a Little Thrifting because it Seems so Bossy ; ) & Responsible to your pockets & your closet.
Not Only that but the ease of purchase is the Same as retail online shops & megastores (for the most part : O)
So without Further Ado I compiled a list of a few of my Favorite Instagram online thrift Shops!

Its the last Friday of 2016 and if you've been following the IG timeline our lil tweets or FB page you know that every Friday I remind us goal seekers that the Grind don't stop,
This has been a year of transition and I’m really just getting started.
The delay in blog posts has only come from wanting to fulfilll a need for my reader just as I feel that our site fulfills a need for the best of quality thrifted womenswear delivered right to your doorstep…
Anywho, I just wanted to share a little of this journey so that in my transition all that choose to receive or share just a little of the love I offer on this journey we can collectively share effort in love.
I will not bore you in this post with the story of TierraDivastyle as an Aries I know I can be an overtalker ; ) but I will at least share a glimpse of what this strip of highway on my life journey contains in hopes that at least one of you can relate.
The year started so promisingly with a my real estate career in place and a small business pursuit steadily growing.
Through the ups and downs of highway I have seen many changes in my terrain from unstable conditions to downright hurricanes.
I have encountered old acquaintances and friends who have shown my how far I've come not as a business women but a woman.
I have discovered truths about myself and my attractions as in “law of” and Universal.
I have made little teeny steps where no road was because I refuse to believe that there is anything I cant achieve.
I have overcome large obstacles both seen and unseen because I realize that despite believing I am a realist I now know I am an optimist.
I have made apologies and set records straight inside and out and found that I trust myself because I have shown me I can be counted on.
And most importantly I have continued to cultivate my goals through thought action & deed.
Financially the year has been crazy I have joked a few times that all my dreams are manifesting but the money. I have seen my income tumble like a roulette and at times every purchase or bill paid was a gamble.
BUT baby I can bet on Me.
& its all love. My passion fuels my income not just my business because this very effort all stems from my obscene love of clothes HONEY!
I sell Real Estate because I have always believed and now after more than a decade of experience KNOW FOR SURE We Must Own our communities land and business. Its an imperative part of our collective ability to not just build wealth but SURVIVE.
It is a winners passion that creates a way from what seems like no way. It is the combination of Faith & Work
Hope & Movement & sometimes sitting still.
The point is, to each of you who took the time to read this little 1st RareEarthThrift Blog post, the BEST is YET To Come. But you gotta BET ON YOU....
& Of Course The Grind Don't Stop..
Cheers to The NEW YEAR!!!
