Time for a little…
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—ask your great-uncle’s sister’s cousin’s best friend what she thinks, show the options to your husband (and watch him roll his eyes), lick the screen…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 a fun giveaway that starts tomorrow!
I’ll never teeee-ell. Oh wait. That’s not true. I will tell. Tomorrow morning, in fact.
But for now, guess away! And don’t forget the best part: COMMENTING. Your reactions to these post always brighten my week, and my husband’s out of town right now, so I could really use some distraction from 24/7 solo bottom-wiping and snack-procuring (clearly, I’m not afraid to beg).
Which outfit is 100% Thrifted?
