Sure do! Most of my clothes are thrifted so it's not like they are gonna go to Goodwill and find the exact item they asked me about anyway.

That being said, I seldom tell people the specific store I got something. I'm not assing myself out of a score in the name of chunky sisterhood. Damn that.

But good luck though.

^lol

There is this one chick I won't share with. One of those user chicks, who only speaks when she wants or needs something.

She lives in my apartment complex and will practically follow me asking what kinda hair I have, where did I get it from, where'd I get my shoes, oh that jacket is cute, I like that dress, who does your hair.

I'll see her a few days later and she won't say a word as she breezes by me in the shirt I just wore a couple of equal ago. Won't even acknowledge me.

Magically a couple of days later when she sees something else she likes, she's all smiles, waves, and small talk again.

Now when I see her, I suddenly suffer selective deafness .

It depends sometimes I will.  Depending on where I got it.  If it's thrifted I no longer tell people.


Most of my clothes are thrifted or vintage--and people would never know unless I tell. 
I used to tell people about my thrift store finds but then I started getting snide comments about wearing clothes that's been on someone elses A$$.  Plus I do buy nice new items from time to time and people would automatically assume they were thrifted..."oh how much did you get that for? Five Dollars?"   And I hated spending a lot of money on something and people just assuming it was used. So now I don't tell.

On My old job there was another lady who I would see at the thrift all the time and I guess she told people and anytime I was with a group of women and she was approaching,  They'd all be whispering "Oh here she come with her ol' dusty thrift store clothes."  LOL

Sometimes if I thrift something that's from Banana Republic, I'll just tell people I got it from BR. 
 I had someone ask me where I got a shirt from one time and I couldn't remember.  She reached down the back of my shirt and looked at the tag!!!

I want to know this as well. I never had this issue on a job and definitely not in my career. Maybe cause I work in a male dominated field? *Shrugs*
