Celebrities who thrift do their piece to protect our budgets, and the environment! From $3 finds to vintage numbers for awards ceremonies, they do it all!
Why spend $300 dollars on a single item of clothing when you can literally fill your closet, and potentially everyone in your household's closets with that same $300? If you think your celebrity idol might give you an imaginary evil eye because you're thrifting, you'll be surprised at the number of celebrities who thrift. That money will look great in your savings portfolio instead! So let's see which of the A-listers are A-thrifters.
She's known for her legendary and ethereal vocals – and shushing concert attendees! – but Lorde also happens to have some money savvy when it comes to buying clothes.

You can get ten things because everything costs, like, three dollars."
