Be confident in the skin you are in. At this age in my life, no one can touch my self-esteem. It is the ESTEEM of mySELF. How can you allow someone to destroy how you feel… about you?

You are Be-YOU-tiful !!!

Thrift & Rip

i am colorful . i am energized . i am inspired .



I’m versatile when it comes to what I wear. I truly feel most comfortable in street styled clothing. Of course, I got stares of my shirt being half in half out but I am confident whenever I step anywhere past my mailbox. I don’t care if I’m in second-hand goods. Regardless, of the millions I plan to make in the future my love for the thrift shop won’t ever die.

BLONDE MOMENT: The earliest known thrift/”charity” shop was in 1899 selling goods that were made by blind people to raise money. It’s obviously more popular now for different reasons such as, for those who are frugal, environmentalist, or fashionistas like myself on a hunt for one of kind items.DSC_0442DSC_0449
