Szafa Sztywniary is a blog I really enjoy reading. Her real name is Ryfka and she's an individual who's style is definitely inspired by that whole "thrifted" street style look but yet very true to who she is. I am very inspired by her even though I can't understand a word she types. It's in Polish. But her Flickr shows off her outfits. I love her style. I don't want to "copy" it but I am inspired to go "thrifting" to find my own treasures. Especially since I'm on such a strict budget now that we recently purchased our first home.


I could never pull off that hat but she can!
