Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
No list of New Year's resolutions is complete without a promise to tighten purse strings and reevaluate shopping habits, so we're taking a lesson from third grade teacher/blogger Veronika Placek, the face behind the South Philly-based blog Tick Tock Vintage. The chicest type of bargain-hunter, Placek can style an impossibly cute thrift store ensemble in no time flat, and she never, ever pays retail for her designer shoes.
Why we love it: Not only does Placek have a great eye for vintage finds, the blogger also shares charming photos from family outings, and her site is sprinkled with giveaways and ideas for DIY projects.
