I love following women with unique styles & statement pieces. When i started ThriftNtell, a lot of those same women stood out amon myself many followers & AnJelica was one of them! Here is her interview— Be sure to follow her on IG: @anjelicachristina 1. What is your Name and where are you from? AnJelica Keesee, born and raised in Hampton Va, moved to Charlotte after college. 2. How old are you and what do you do for a living ? 24, current 9-5er in office administration and online boutique owner. Aspiring fashion stylist. 3. How long have you been thrifting & is it a hobby or a preference? Yearsss, I don’t even remember when I started. I think it originally started as a hobby but it’s definitely a preference now. 4. Who is your favorite fashion inspiration? Rihanna, Solange Knowles, Tracee Ellis Ross and honestly my grandmother. 5. What is your favorite section in a thrift store? Accessories! (Bags,belts, etc) I always find the most unique pieces. I would even go as far as saying the craft section. I’ve turned almost anything into a purse (bird cages, etc) 6. What decade of fashion are you more interested in? 60s & 70s looks are my faves! (With a modern twist of course) 7. What inspires you while thrifting? I guess the fact that I know no one is about to have on my outfit always motivated me to find those dope pieces. 8. Why do you thrift? To ensure my clothes are as unique as my personality. I also flip pieces from time to time. 9. What was the best item that you have ever found in a thrift store? Fur coats for sure, sometimes they’re real sometimes they’re faux but they’re always dope and affordable. 10. What advice would you give to people who are new to thrifting? Take your time! Go through every section while shopping, even if it’s not necessarily your size. You would be amazed by how many pieces weren’t originally meant to be oversized but ended up being a look.
