About

About the blog: This is a blog about clothes. Specifically, cheap clothes. Because thrift shopping is not only a way of life but also a state of mind. It’s an admonition to the cyclical nature of fashion, but also a statement about the timelessness of certain ways in which we adorn our own bodies. Thrift can both enunciate the ridiculousness of the human obsession with fashion while also acknowledging the substantial role fashion plays in our psyche and in our interactions with the world around us. And, thrift is fun. The goal of this blog, in the long run, is to catalog thrift shop and other cheap clothes outlet experiences across the United States and (eventually) the world. It’s also a place to enjoy pretty shit. The exact future for this blog and my life is unclear, but as David Bowie said, “I don’t know where I’m going from here but I promise it won’t be boring.”

About me: Marguerite Alley, age 15. Enjoys reading, writing, playing music, sleeping. Wouldn’t mind being a surgeon, a rockstar, a novelist, a nuclear engineer, or a fashion authority. Doesn’t hold out much hope for achieving any of these.
