Come thrifting with me in NYC! In this video, I give you a tour of my favorite thrift stores in Manhattan and Brooklyn, try on all the thrifted dresses, jackets, sweaters, jeans, and t-shirts I’ve accumulated over the past couple months, and demonstrate my hidden talent of stuffing a truly obscene amount of fabric into my pants. Also thank you for your patience with my upload schedule during the past month! I tried to film this thrift haul a couple weeks ago on election day and the vibes were just ~weird~ because I was so nervous, so I decided to scrap the entire thing, and then there’s been a ton of construction in my building so it’s been infuriatingly hard to find a time quiet enough to film. Anyhow an entire month later, here she is!

  • Hi I just wanted to say thank you so much you’re closer essentials video and all you’re thrift flips have really helped me regain my confidence and take pride in my appearance again i have been struggling with mental health for a few years now and was not taking care of myself and after I got a therapist and put on medicine I knew I needed to fix that but I had no idea where to start I didn’t have any friends to ask and my family doesn’t really care about that so you really helped me and I’ve never been happier I feel like I love myself for the first time in a really long time and I just wanted to thank you for you’re part of that 💖

  • I just wanted to say that I love your videos, that I think you are a wonderful person and that I love your style of clothing, your personality, everything, you are the best, they should not criticize you so harshly for everything you do, you can see that you put a lot of effort and hours to your videos, let's hope more videos of yours, you are going through a time when your mental health is not the best but with support and help, surely you can overcome it, that and more, I love you so much, I hope you feel better soon and I hope you see this comment, and that all the people who support you like it, so that it reaches you and you can know that we are with you

  • Ashley, you humped a Republican? I am so disappointed!! Since Republicans treat women as second-class citizens, I think that all self-respecting women should SAY NO to Republicans! Reread Lysistrata, and don't let them multiply!
