FCO50: Where do you like to shop and why?

KIM: Half of my wardrobe is thrifted. I find great up-to-date pieces thrifting. So for thrifting, I shop Goodwill or Salvation Army. The black dress I am wearing in these pictures is a Charter Club thrifted dress. I like to shop Old Navy also. They have good prices and their tops are very comfortable. Macy’s is another store I shop in. It’s a store I grew up going to and my Mom pretty much only shopped there. I like to go there cause it reminds me of her.

Bargain Fashion Tip: Try everything on – you might be a medium but in thrifted clothes you might be a small or an extra large. Kim

Today on She’s Got Style, we’re headed to America to visit with the New Jersey fashionista with a talent for finding fabulous fashion at mind-blowing prices!

Kim, who describes her style as a mix of classic, chic with sophistication, has a knack for hunting down such fabulous pieces and accessories, no one would ever guess how much she paid or where she found them.  We double dog dare you to find the pieces in her stylish photos that she got for screaming deals!

Kim was kind enough to share her insider bargain shopping tips with us, and we can’t thank her enough!


♦ Try everything on – you might be a medium but in thrifted clothes you might be a small or an extra large.

♦ Look at the clothes that are on the return rack by the dressing room – sometimes you find great things people decided they didn’t want.

♦ You have to have “time” – time to look thru all the racks of clothes

♦ Know sale days – most thrift stores have sale days where a certain color tag is 50 percent off.

FCO50: What’s your favorite piece you scored at a great price and where did you find it?

KIM: Not Your Daughter Jeans – .50 cents. Market Street Mission was the name of the store.

FCO50: What is the one beauty product you can’t live without?

KIM: Lipstick/Lip Balms – I have lipsticks all over the house and in my car. I feel I can’t talk right with dry lips.


I’m an empty nester and live in the town I was born in. I have been married for 28 years and have two grown daughters and a cute little dog named Tucker. I like to exercise, walk, read and spend time with my family.
