Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft Wanz - Thrift Shop [My Clean Version]

Hey, Macklemore, can we go thrift shopping?
What, what, what, what... (7x)
Ba-da, ba-dada, ba-dada, ba-da... (9x)

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I- I- I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is freaking awesome

 Nah, walk up to the club like, "What up? I got a big cock!"
I'm so pumped about some shit from the thrift shop
Ice on the fringe, it's so dang frosty
That people like, "Dang! That's a cold ol' honkey."
Rollin' in, really deep, headin' to the mezzanine,
Dressed in all pink, 'cept my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girls standin' next to me
Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly's sheets
But crap, it was ninety-nine cents! (Bag it)
Coppin' it, washin' it, 'bout to go and get some compliments
Passin' up on those moccasins someone else's been walkin' in
Bummy and grungy, forget it, man
I am stuntin' and flossin' and
Savin' my money and I'm really happy that's a bargain, trick
I'ma take your grandpa's style, I'ma take your grandpa's style,
No for real - ask your grandpa - can I have his hand-me-downs? (Thank you)
Velour jumpsuit and some house slippers
Dookie brown leather jacket that I found diggin'
They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard
I bought a neat blanket, then I bought a kneeboard
Hello, hello, my ace man, my Mello
John Wayne ain't got nothing on my fringe game, heck no
I could take some Pro Wings, make them cool, sell those
The sneaker heads would be like "Aw, he got the velcros"

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I- I- I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is freaking awesome

What you know about rockin' a wolf on your noggin?
What you knowin' about wearin' a fur fox skin?
I'm digging, I'm digging, I'm searching right through that luggage
One man's trash, that's another man's come-up
Thank your granddad for donating that plaid button-up shirt
'Cause right now I'm up with her stuntin'
I'm at the Goodwill, you can find me in the (Uptons)
I'm not, I'm not stuck, I’m searchin' in that section (Uptons)
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your mammy
I'll take those flannel zebra jammies, second-hand, I rock that mother-lover
The built-in onesie with the socks on that mother-lover
I hit the party and they stop in that mother-lover
They be like, "Oh, that Gucci - that's really tight."
I'm like, "Yo, that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant trick (shoot)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (shoot)
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt's really dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a really don't
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Tryna get girls from a brand and you really won't
Man you really won't

(Goodwill... poppin' tags... yeah!)

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I- I- I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is freaking awesome

I wear your granddad's clothes
I look incredible
I'm in this big ol' coat
From that thrift shop down the road
I wear your granddad's clothes (darn right)
I look incredible (now come on man)
I'm in this big ol' coat (big ol' coat)
From that thrift shop down the road (let's go)

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I- I- I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is freaking awesome

Is that your grandma's coat? 

Gothic Casual

Went to a train museum today. So much history behind such big boxes on wheels... and I say that in a good way!

How to Dress Like Laura Marano

Her character on "Austin & Ally" dresses in a more bohemian, vintage type of way with a dash of summer and girly-girl. An article helped me out on how to dress like her so I am going to help you how to dress like her!

  1. Laura's character likes to wear a lot of skirts so lots of skirts! If you're not a "skirt person", pants and shorts will do.
  2. Wear fabrics like cotton, denim, silk, rayon and lace.
  3. Laura's tops usually consist of tank tops, dresses, blouses and tees tucked into her skirts. Over them, she wears cardigans, shrugs, jackets, and vests.
  4. For pants, wear tailored or denim shorts, leggings, "jeggings" and flared jeans.
  5. Laura always wore brown boots on her show. So wear shoes similar to ankle or knee-high leather boots. Pair them with white or lacy socks.
  6. As for accessories, she wears vintage jewelry like a long beaded necklace.
  7. Patterns consist of tiny features like thin stripes.
  8. Colors consist of muted, bright or pastel colors.
  9. Avoid black and punk clothing. Go for delicate and girly clothing.

And that is it for how to dress like Laura Marano (or at least her character as Ally Dawson). If you want to read more, go to Hope this helped or inspired you!

Laura Marano Inspired OOTD

I am wearing a Laura Marano-inspired outfit as I went to pick up my schedule for school coming up in a few weeks. I assume Laura Marano does not dress this way in real life as her character on "Austin & Ally" dresses in a bohemian way. I don't personally watch "Austin & Ally" but one day, I fell upon it and fell in love with her outfit. Then I fell in love with the rest of her outfits! I hope to dress more vintage and summer-y in the future.

Escaping from Ghosts with My New Best Friends

This is the perfect story for Halloween! I mean, Halloween is a few months away, but who can't start early with a story? I wrote the story for a contest in school last year and I didn't win but I find it funny so read on...

“Help! Help!” I yelled, banging on the door. “We’re trapped! Please!” I kept pulling and pushing the handle on the door but it wasn’t opening. I turned around and said, out of breath, “It’s locked.”
    “No duh!” said the girl with the Latina accent.
    “It can’t be locked,” said the brunet boy, throwing his arms out.
    “Of course it is,” commented the blonde girl. “She said it was.”
    I leaned against the door and groaned. “Well, since we are all in here and can’t get out, we should introduce each other.”
    “Okay!” said the blonde girl. “I’m Chellsey Remington of Ariana and Harry Remington. We’re like the Hiltons, but in Maryland.”
    “Okay,” I replied.
    “I’m Ingrid,” answered the Latina girl. She took a long pause. “That’s all you’re going to know.”
    I stared nervously.
    “I’m Frank,” answered the boy. “Should I say my last name?”
    “No, it’s okay,” I said. “Um, I’m Renee, and yeah. I guess we all know each other.”
    “Good, now how are we going to get out of here?” Ingrid asked.
    “Well, I don’t know,” I confessed. “We could wait for help. My friends dared me to go in here.”
    “Then why aren’t they helping?”
    “Because they’re bullies!” I banged on the door.
    “Your hand is getting red,” noted Frank.
    I glanced at my hand, which was getting a bit red. I swatted it down. “Okay, so we got to wait for help, right? I saw a couple of people waiting outside before I entered—”
    “They were probably my friends,” said Ingrid.
    “Oh, that’s good. Maybe they’ll try to get us out or call for help. So the best that we can do is wait.”
