March 7, 2023 Q&A with Celeste of @_celestemunoz

Celeste of @_celestemunoz has a go-to Instagram feed to follow for fashion inspiration, especially if you love seeing looks that incorporate secondhand finds. We reached out to ask more about her personal style and how she started shopping for secondhand fashion. Read on to learn more about Celeste.

Hi, Celeste! Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hi! I am 27 and have been living in New York City for 9 years. I work in fashion merchandising and do social media and content creation on the side. An avid coffee drinker and thrifter, I’m also obsessed with hot yoga and pilates.

It’s great that you incorporate secondhand fashion into your wardrobe. Tell us how you started thrifting.

I have been into thrifting since I was a kid! I always loved vintage and was obsessed with the history of fashion trends. It may have started when I began watching That 70s Show. It inspired me so much in middle school and lead me to start learning about what garment details were telling signs of the decades they were made in. Now, my POV on thrifting has changed into wanting to consume less fast fashion and knowing that since trends are cyclical, you can always thrift the original piece instead of buying it at Zara. Often times vintage is better quality anyway.

What was your best secondhand fashion find ever?

SO MANY! My favorites are my Burberry Trench Coat ($35) and my Gold Metallic Jean Paul Gaultier Skirt ($10).

You’re fresh off the heels of NYFW. What were your personal highlights?

I went to the I Like You after party, which was SO FUN! So many tiktokers were there, and the street style was so cool.

Spring is on the horizon! Which spring trends are you most excited about?

I am so excited for the return of bohemian style in a modern way. I’ve been super inspired by crochet paired back to tailored pieces, or voluminous silhouettes in linen-like materials.
