Whoop! It’s that time again!
Thrifted or Grifted is back, baby!
So, what is it?
Thrifted or Grifted is the fashion game where you test your thrifting savvy by deciding whether an outfit is:
A) 100% Thrifted: (adj.)—previously loved and therefore ridiculously cheap…aka Secondhand
B) 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).
I’ve already admitted that I can be a touch competitive (my husband is choking right now), and if you’ve been following along for a while, then you know that you guys have a (tiny) lead since a 51% majority correctly guessed the thrifted outfit last time.
The stakes are higher than ever! (Meaning: I’m feeling even more determined to “win” than ever, since there aren’t any actual “stakes” in this game).
Also, I got to wear not one but two pairs of boots. Not that the two are related, but I just had to point out that, it may have taken until the dad-gum middle of October, but we actually got a day chilly enough for boot-wearing without the risk of heat rash.
So…which is it?
And yes, I realize that I have my hands on my hips and an elbow jutting out in every picture. What can I say? I’m not a very good poser (I’m a little better than I used to be, but when I first started all this
monkey fashion business, I felt like an absolute doofus no matter what I did with my various appendages), and when I can’t figure out what to do with my hands, my hips seem like as good a place as any to prop them. They’re there, aren’t they? Might as well use them!
Which outfit is Thrifted?
I would love it if you leave me a comment explaining why you voted the way you did! The commenter I find most entertaining will receive an automatic 5 free entries into The October Giveaway.
P.S. Don’t forget that tomorrow is our 3rd Five Things Thursday Linky Party, and the theme is:
(A picture of pie fits, obviously, but you can interpret the theme however you choose).
Hope to see you there!
