Wait. What IS Thrifted or Grifted?
Thrifted or Grifted is a silly little fashion game I came up with in which I wear two similar ensembles, and 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 (NOTICE THE “R” IN GRIFTED! SOMETIMES, I GET EMAILS FROM PEOPLE WONDERING WHY I DO A GAME ABOUT “GIFTED” CLOTHES! : ))
…and then you vote and leave me comments telling why you chose the one you did!
(Disclaimer: No, I don’t actually think 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 pro, then you know the drill—consult your Magic 8 ball, throw darts, research the entire sordid history of skinny jeans…do whatever it takes for you to feel fully satisfied that you have sufficiently scoured each outfit for telltale signs of thriftedness (WRINKLES DON’T COUNT!) and then comment away telling me why you chose which one you did.
The commenter I find most entertaining (there’s nothing fair or random about it! ; )) will get 5 free entries into our next giveaway!
(Pardon the blurriness, but my photographer was a 7 1/2-year-old, who I thought did great, given his 7 1/2-year-old-ness).
I’ll never teeee-eeell.
Oh wait. Yes, I will. Tomorrow, in fact. But for now, it’s time for you to vote!
Today’s Thrifted or Grifted is going to be entirely based on comment polling, which is brought to you care of, “Abbie couldn’t get her poll widget to install correctly for Word Press, and her techie husband is out of town.”
You can either just leave a comment saying A or B, or, if you really want to make your presence known (and get your name in the giveaway hat) explain the reasoning behind your choice.
