You may say, "Oh Madi, you fantastic music guru, thrifting is not a sport." But like a sport, it is tiring and hard, but fun and definitely worth it in the end. Here I am to put to rest some thrifting myths, and provide you with the absolute truth.
Myth: Thrifting Is Totally Disguising
You know, this one is probably not a myth, because thrifting can be a little gross. But, dude, if your buying clothes (at incredibly low prices, might I add), just send em through the washing machine. Not a problem. Taking a shower after you thrift probably isn't a bad idea either.
Myth: Thrifting Is For Unstylish People
"WHAT?!" is what I say to that assumption. Why? Because I consider myself to be rather stylish, actually, and I thrift. And some of my most stylish friends thrift as well. I mean, where do you think we got these beauties? Thats right. A thrift store.
Myth: It Is Not Worth The Time
THAT IS A MYTH, MY FRIENDS! Though it may take a really long time, and you might not find anything, you just might find something that you really love. I always find something awesome, though, it seems. Such as this jacket, which I found a few weeks ago, and its pretty much my favorite now.
Yay for cheesy pictures taken on Thanksgiving.
Myth: Thrifting Is For The Poor
I beg to differ! That is like saying that only poor people should recycle, because recycling is what thrifting is to me, pretty much. I don't think that it is a bad thing to wear second hand clothes at all, in fact I greatly enjoy it. Like, maybe my jacket was worn to something great like a concert or a book signing. Or maybe someone died in it....
Though there are many other thrifting myths, I am much to lazy to tell you them. Anyway, you should try thrifting some time in your life, you may find that you are a master at it. Just remember my trick that never fails. If it looks funny, try it on. If it still looks funny, buy it.
