Owner- I’m Riley Halliday an 18 year old living somewhere in between Boston, MA and Providence, RI. I’m a writer and content creator for Adolescent Content and the co-owner of Unamused Apparel. Most days though, I’m hanging out with dogs.
What is Thrifts and Prints? Well it’s whatever you want it to be. What I originally intended to be a fashion blog has sprouted into a hub for all things art. Ranging from photography to poetry, there’s something for everyone. I’m a firm believer that art is much more than something to look at, it can change people’s perspectives on pressing issues, and more importantly, make the world a better place.
My love for fashion has definitely found it’s way into my photography. Over the years I have transitioned into an editorial/ avant-garde style. Truth be told, I didn’t MEAN to fall in love with photography, it just fell into my lap one day and thank god it did. I think we were destined to be; if photography were a person, I’d most likely die for them. I currently have an entire wardrobe dedicated to my photography, all thrifted of course. From my photography I have become intrigued with editorial makeup looks, and more recently, wigs within my photographs.
Although I like to have fun on here, I can’t forget about the people (and animals) in this world that have not been granted the same opportunities I have. So if you see the occasional article pop up on more serious topics, I encourage you to read those as well. As a community, we can make a pretty awesome difference.
At the end of the day, I come from a polka-dot dress wearing, rainbow converse sporting childhood, and wearing what I want to wear has truly shaped me as a person. Money doesn’t make anyone fashionable, but seeing potential in the most bizarre pieces does. Be sure to check out my Instagram (@thriftsandprints) for more photography and always remember it’s ok to be tacky, and even better to be tastefully tacky.
