Hello and welcome to The Thrift Edition!

I love to thrift and I’ve been thrifting ever since I can remember. Most of the outfits I feature here were thrifted or were on sale. As much as I love buying brand new clothes there’s something exciting about finding that one gem after sifting through piles of rejects. I think it’s the thrill of the hunt. I hope you leave inspired to go thrifting after browsing through my blog.

As well as being an avid thrifter, I currently live in New York, have two cats, a husband and hold a Masters in Music in Viola Performance. I also love to play video games (hello FFXV) and sleep in. ;)

Thank you for visiting and stay thrifty!
