Well folks, I think that it is safe to say that it is official...
I am definitely known as the thrift girl on campus.
I know that Juniata is small, but it is still sort of awesome. I have always thrifted because that is what I needed to do to dress how I wanted. Now, it has just become a bigger part of me than I ever thought possible.
I love when people that I don't know super well (or even at all) ask me about my blog or just thrifting in general and I have to say, it surprises me every single time.
However, the main reason that I know that I have been dubbed the thrift-y gal?
A bunch of friends both on and off campus have shown me this Macklemore song, saying that it always remind them of me and my passion for the thrift.
I have to say that I never thought that people would listen to a rap song and think of me. Whitney Houston? Possibly. Backstreet Boys? Most definitely. Some white guy rapping? Ha!
But, my roomie and I have certainly jammed to "Thrift Shop" plenty that it has become one of our new 'theme songs.'
So, from one thrift gal to another, give it a listen.
Warning: it will make you want to hit up the nearest thrift store ASAP.
