    I love your style of clothing.😘 Now in my 50’s I rather buy less and better quality in my budget.

    As always, wonderful info and thank you for sharing. You know I’m all about sustainability and THRIFTING 😍😘

    Per your advice, just started using Stoptagr a couple of weeks ago. Great idea. I also have found nice items on ThredUp, a used shop online. There’s a huge selection, but you need to know what you’re looking for. Thank you for all your great videos!!

    I love Shoptgr. I’ve been using it for more than a year.

    1 hour in! Shoptagr looks like fun but I usually don’t buy clothes online. I like to try things on in store, I still have 27lbs left to lose, and with the returns to go back, causes more of a carbon footprint. Great tips, love your videos! I feel like many of the women here and on FB are getting so much out of them. @Christie Ressel you are really helping women feel better, look better and have more confidence with themselves. God bless you each and every day. xo

    I have a beautiful poncho that my Mother bought me in 1974. I have been able to wear it through the decades and it is still exquisite!! Love your channel. Thank you for all the great info!

    Love this video!

  10. Julie Smith on January 3, 2022 at 4:18 pm

    I love your channel so much! Pretty please from the bottom of my heart could you do a video 10 outfits that go with black pants or leggings and casual outfits that go with cute sneakers! I hope you’re enjoying your new house!

    I finally took your advice about alterations. I found a great alteration shop and I will definitely be doing this more in the future!

    The only thing I loathed about Shoptagr is the amount of spam they send!!! I ended up deleting it. I’ll just check for deals on my own. Cuts down on shopping for sure then 😉. I’ve always done the end-of-season shopping for deals. I’m more into thrifting now too which has been fun!

  13. linda jackson on January 3, 2022 at 4:22 pm

    ❤️✨❤️ I must say I love your style and those styles you just showed❤️✨❤️

    thanks so much for sharing!!! Have a awesome weekend!!!

    Hello, I love your channel. What do you think of the Macy’s brand “INC International Concepts” in terms of quality? I’ve been buying some of their clothes lately but wanted to know what an expert thinks.
    P.S. You always looks on point.😊

  16. Gina on January 3, 2022 at 4:25 pm

    SUCH great advice!!!! Thank you!!!!

  17. ByWendy WithLove on January 3, 2022 at 4:27 pm

    I love your earrings and that flower jacket!!

  18. DutchBlush on January 3, 2022 at 4:29 pm

    Love your opinion on consuming less. The number of videos on YouTube that are about buying stuff is insane. I also notice that I find it more normal to buy lots of items, when it is totally unnecessary. Very good to be aware of this fact! Thank you!

    I’m so excited to try some of these tips especially the app because I need a whole new wardrobe for a new job. Thank you!

  21. Shan Nadur on January 3, 2022 at 4:37 pm

    Christie love your tips. Classic cuts, Great Colours, Great quality, Vintage. Especially love the question ‘can I style this 3 ways?’. 💕

    Shoptagr is amazing!

  23. eternalbliss on January 3, 2022 at 4:41 pm

    Looking sharp! 😇

  24. Rytoft on January 3, 2022 at 4:42 pm

    First and I love it❤️

  25. Pahla B, Fitness + Life Coach on January 3, 2022 at 4:46 pm

    I love the idea of asking yourself if you can style it three ways! That’s awesome!

  26. Wavy Jenny on January 3, 2022 at 4:47 pm

    Love the tips, thank you Christie. I’m trying SO hard to reduce my “consumption” of clothing (especially since many of the clothes are not right for me or don’t fit in with my lifestyle) so anything that helps me be more mindful and conscious helps 🤗 A little feedback for Shoptagr in case they are reading the comments: I love the idea and have tried to use the app but since I’m in Europe there are a lot of retailers that can’t be used. Please could they branch out into more European brands as well? I trialled the app and button with a couple of retailers that did allow me to use them and it’s excellent, but there are a lack of options for UK and European brands and retailers. Thank you!

  27. Rhonda Carter on January 3, 2022 at 4:47 pm

    agree with the altering…. I alter almost every single piece of clothing I buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nursing scrubs included :O)

  28. Vikki Breese on January 3, 2022 at 4:50 pm

    Hi Christie – Love the blue and white trousers @ 5:26 – Where are they from? Xx

  29. Maren Haugen on January 3, 2022 at 4:51 pm

    Monday, got a pair of Universal Thread Nora V-cut ankle booties in Cognac for 7.99 at Good Will, at Target they are 24.99. Amazing someone got these and gave them away. Now that I work there, I appreciate their clothes more. However, I live in Los Angeles, most of the stuff I see is stocked for dark skin, and dark hair. So most of my shopping is on line if I want my colors. Will now try Shoptagr, as for the past 6 months have been following your suggestion. Am happier with less but higher quality pieces. Love to you! Maren and Nemo

    This is SO cool! I found a pair of jeans by AG at a thrift store for $4. I paid $11 for a new zipper (as it was broken)& it was well worth it. Thank you Christie! ❤
