Happy Wednesday, everybody!
Are you ready to do this?
It’s time for Thrifted or Grifted, the fashion game where you test your thrifting savvy by deciding whether an outfit is:
100% Thrifted: (adj.)—previously loved and therefore ridiculously cheap…aka Secondhand
100% Grifted: (adj.)—swindled or cheated…aka Retail
(Disclaimer: No, I don’t actually think that you’re getting ripped off every time you pay retail, but I do believe that if you can’t tell the difference, you shouldn’t have to pay for it).
Well, we’re Even Steven, folks…assuming, of course, that it’s me against the majority, which…I don’t really think it is…but I’m a competitive sort, so I’ll go with it.
2-2, so far, so…
Tie-breaker, it is!
Bring. it. on.
So, which is it?
Heels + gravel should not = smiles, but I can fake it!
This is my game face.
Am I thinking thrifty thoughts?
Flower corsage made by me.
Well, don’t I look smug? Maybe I know something you don’t? Umm..yeah. I guess that’s kind of the point.
I had to end with this pic. I look like I’m ready to talk some smack. ; )
P.S. Please disregard the wrinkly state of Exhibit B. I’m not actually sure which way it would sway your opinion since thrifted and retail outfits alike are prone to wrinkles when their owners forget to iron them, but I just wanted to point out that the wrinkles are not an attempt to make you think this outfit is thrifted when it’s really not (although it might be!) or to make you think that I’m trying to make you think…oh, man. Now my head hurts. You get the idea, right? I forgot to iron my top!
And now for the vote!
Which outfit is 100% thrifted?
I would love it if you leave a comment explaining the reason behind your vote! The commenter I find most entertaining will get 5 free entries into The October Giveaway (coming soon!).
P.P.S. Also, don’t forget that Thursday (tomorrow!) is the first ever 5 Things Thursday linky party, and the theme is:
You don’t have to stick with a travel theme, though. The idea is just to link up a list of five things on your mind (preferably with pictures)—movies, recipes, memories, projects, paint colors…anything goes! Just have fun with it! I’ll consider it your birthday present to me if you decide to participate! ; )
