About Thrifting Diva

Posted on April 15, 2014

Camping I am the Thrifting Diva and I am here to inspire you to be stylish and chic on a very reasonable budget!

But first, let me introduce myself properly.  I am Ayana Pitterson.

I’m a native from the beautiful island of Trinidad but grew up in New York City.  I am a mother of two little ones (the perfect pair), a wife, an attorney, a great cook (I have been told), a photographer, a stylist, a fashion blogger and a girl who absolutely LOVES fashion!  But, while I do have a closet full of pretty things, please understand that I am not about a life of spending all of my hard earned money on chasing the next fashion trend.  My blog will show you that you can look amazing, be on trend, not be on trend if that is your thing, fill your closet with beautiful pieces, shop smartly, look stylish, feel great, and save your money!

Instagram I am a firm believer that your fashion game should always be on point.  When you walk out your doors you should always look put together.  But, you don’t have to wealthy to do so, and you certainly should not have to spend your last dollar for those designer shoes!
My closet is packed with designer items.  I also have items that are simply unique which I love that carry no recognizable names.

My closet is also about 80% thrifted.  I shop at thrift, vintage and consignment stores, yard sales and estate sales, and I swap.  I do shop at retail stores, but, their clearance sections are my best friends, and for some stores, my only friends.  I love a great discount and have no issues stalking an online item until the price is lowered that I may call the purchase, “thrifty.” 

I want you to join on my thrifty fashion journeys as I show you that looking stylish does not have to cost an arm and a leg! 

To keep up with me follow me on either of these social media platforms. Instagram, Youtube, Pinterest, or Twitter!  And, to show you that I am not the only one out there with this love for a thrifty fashion budget, join my Facebook Group of over 12,000 other Thrifting Divas, or you can stop by my Thrifting Diva Facebook fan page

I’m so glad you are here!

    I’m happy to have found your page and will be checking you out daily. I tried to email you but, no email address populated when I hit the email button. If you would be so kind to provide your email address that would be great.

    I love a bargain and absolutely love looking good. Shopping is my favorite thing and doing so on a bargain makes it so delightful. I’m a plus size diva so I put extra time and effort in looking my best. Thank you soooooo very much for the blog!! I’m looking forward in all the deals and fashion tips in the New Year! !
