Hey guys! Since we always have so much fun with Thrifted or Grifted, I thought we might go another round this week!
So..what’s Thrifted or Grifted?
Well, it’s 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
…and then you vote and leave me comments telling why you chose the one you did!
(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).
If you’re a Thrifted or Grifted expert, then you know the drill—squash your face against your screen and check each outfit for telltale signs of thriftedness (ignore the wrinkles!) and then comment away telling me why you chose which one you did.
The commenter I find most entertaining (oh yeah! It’s as subjective as they come!) will get 5 free entries into our Shabby Apple Jewelry Giveaway! (Have you checked it out yet?)
Let’s get to it, shall we?
Exhibit A Exhibit B
The especially observant of you might notice that the background in these pics is just a tad different than usual.
I mean, there are no leaves.
Other than that, obviously, they’re identical. I mean, I have my hand on my hip, and there’s a fence behind me.
Identical, I say.
Speaking of identical…no matter how much you smoosh your nose against the screen, you won’t find a difference between the tights and the jewelry in these two outfits. That’s because they’re the same. It’s pretty much a physical impossibility to scrounge up patterned sheer black tights at a thrift-store. Oh, and sparkly bib necklaces? Yeah, those are pretty few and far between as well.
So, this week, it’s all about the dresses and the shoes, so here are a few more shots for your
obsessing perusing pleasure:
So, how about it?
Which outfit is 100% Thrifted?
Oh, and I kind of left you hanging when I mentioned that the background for my pics was different this week. That part you got, I’m sure, but in case you’re wondering where it is, it’s the balcony of our suite at the resort we snuck away to for a few days.
These were supposed to be my trial run outfits for our big date night.
So…did I choose A or B?
I went with Exhibit C
Because ruffles and silver shoes seemed like a bit much for Thai food and a movie in Marble Falls, Texas.
After seeing the movie theater dress code here in the hill country, I think Exhibit C was the way to go.
See everybody tomorrow for:
This week’s theme is:
P.S. When I walked out in Exhibit B, my husband just stared at me with this look on his face that said, “I thought you said you were going to change.” And when I assured him that I already had, he didn’t believe me at first. Happy Guessing! (Diabolical chuckle).Like what you read? Like M is for Mama on facebook (pretty please?):
