As much as a I love scouring large thrift stores from top to bottom, sometimes I can be a bit overwhelmed by the selection (or non-selection). I've come up with a pretty handy system for when I'm just not in the mood to pick through every rack. All you do is skim the top of the racks and you can generally get an idea of what the item is and may look like pattern/material-wise. This trick has inspired an incredibly easy DIY after honing in on a particularly amazing leather collar poking out.
See, I told you it was easy! Now go thrifting and find yourself some funky collars to jazz up your wardrobe!
