'The Squad' Are Giving Each Other Thrifting Tips And We Couldn't Be Happier

The reality of keeping your business clothes sharp when money is tight and your conscience is Earth-loving is a real dilemma – news just in tells us that the issue even affects the most powerhouse of females.

As if we couldn't love them more, five US Democratic congresswomen – affectionally known as 'The Squad' – are advising each other (and us, in turn) on the best ways to keep your smart wardrobe fresh and sustainable.

The Dilemma

It was Tuesday night that The Squad's newest member, Cori Bush first tweeted her desire to step away from the pressure of expensive tailoring and towards the beauty of thrifting:

"The reality of being a regular person going to Congress is that it's really expensive to get the business clothes I need for the Hill. So I'm going thrift shopping tomorrow, should I do a fashion show?"

The Advice

Being the rental-lovers that we are, we were all eyes when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez replied some advice:

"Thrifting, renting, and patience as you get your closet together sis. Capsule wardrobe will be your best friend. @AyannaPressley has the accessory game down. Good news is that all these practices are very sustainable and good for the planet! 😉"

"You can also thrift and buy second hand online, which helped me get higher quality, longer-lasting things that would normally be out of budget, Good luck!!"

The Outcome

The interaction ended with Cori Bush giving thanks for the tips and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez planning their next shopping trip. We just have one question... Please can we come too?!

Cori Bush: Yes for the ideas!!!!!! Thanks sis!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: We’ll do a shopping day together. I got you!!

Ladies, we're here for all your rental needs when you need us.
