Amplify RED’s theme for December is the art of giving, with an emphasis on re-using and re-purposing, so with that in mind we decided to set three fashion bloggers a pretty thrifty challenge…

We gave three bloggers $50 to create a completely new look, however all of the clothing must have been purchased from a thrift/vintage store. Each blogger had free reign to style the outfit however they wanted to, but the items of clothing that they are styling were all be second hand.

So without further adieu let us introduce you to the ladies who accepted our vintage challenge and see how they got on with their shopping…


Coming in Clutch


Bryanna Bach is the face behind Coming in Clutch, a fashion and beauty blog where she styles pieces from her wardrobe that will accommodate any occasion that she encounters. Whether she’s running around Cincinnati or exploring the world, she knows how’s to have style that will always come in clutch. Bryanna wanted to be able to have an edge to her competition once she joined the fashion industry and was intrigued by the rise of influential marketing. From that effective trend, Coming in Clutch was born. Her style tends to resemble similarly to a chameleon and is ever changing. Regardless of the style she feels to represent that day, she always adds a unique edge to every outfit.
