Hey hey, Thrifters! I am Patrice McKenzie, founder of Thrift Out Loud. Thrift Out Loud is a thrift fashion blog dedicated to helping millennial women dress professionally and fashionably on a budget. I created Thrift Out Loud because I  believe every woman deserves to look their best regardless of their financial status. I offer a variety of services to educate women on fashion and budgeting. In addition, I host fun fashion-forward events for millennial women that support non-profits that align with my mission.

“Thrift Out Loud is dedicated to helping millennial women shop for stylish threads and save money; all while on a budget. We do this because every woman deserves to look her best and feel her best”


My Vision

“Helping millennial women dress for less and feel fabulous ”
