About The Reclaimed

Welcome to The Reclaimed!
This blog is maintained by me, Whitney Alese, a freelance writer and style blogger. What began as a blog to showcase all of my thrift shopping finds and share tips about successfully thrifting grew into a community to share her commentary on all things beautiful, intriguing, and thought provoking, with an occasional thrifty tip thrown in. Now with brand features such as Rimmel London, YSL, Aveda and Shu Uemura, The Reclaimed is happily expanding from strictly style, shopping, fashion, beauty and beauty products to a full lifestyle blog.

Formerly known as "The Thrift Store Pirate", I sought to create cohesiveness within all of who I am, a woman who rediscovered the importance of family, an eternal student who finally recognized my own potential, a ministry minded individual looking for ways to exhibit my faith in action, and an avid writer who has refound passion, and thus "The Reclaimed" was formed.

In essence, The Reclaimed is more than a page to brag about what I find on my shopping jaunts, but it is about the great experience I am having reforming and reshaping my life. Its about how I share the journey I am having falling in love with myself; good, bad, and all thats in between. It is about how empowering it is to just be yourself, and how to send that empowerment to others.

Our hope is that you enjoy this page, glean from the information, laugh at the jokes, consider the concepts, and walk away from it feeling good about your own look, the world around you, and yourself.

God bless!
