Hi! My name is Julie and I am a thrift store junkie and a day dreamer. As you might suspect from the name of my site I’m not exactly swimming in money, but I have gotten quite good at living out my champagne dreams on my shoestring budget. PoorGirlRichTaste is about more than just fashion and food on a dime; it’s also about learning to live with less- it’s my attempt at some form of minimialism. Buying secondhand is more environmental, more mysterious, and more satisfying because damn it feels good when you score that incredible pair of shoes for $3.99.
Living a thrifty life has helped me to become more creative and to make a habit of looking at things from more than one angle. I like the challenge of putting together trendy and unique outfits from random old clothing and creating delicious recipes that are affordable to make… I feel like I am on a never ending treasure hunt [SCORE!].
This is my life and I want to spend it eating the most amazing food, drinking good wine, and wearing something that makes me feel fabulous!

If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer
If youre a pretender come sit by my fire
