alter ego

I’m soooo pleased to be writing these words: the day has finally come. After over two-months’ work by me (Emmaline) and Fida of Lessly Vintage, we’re proudly presenting our new baby – the quiz titled “What’s your thrifting alter ego?”. 

The quiz is a series of 10 funny questions that will help you determine your alter ego when shopping for preloved clothes (and other items, for that matter).

If you’re here just for the quiz, click the big red hard-to-miss-it button. And if you have some questions about us and the quiz, keep reading (and then, come back to the big, red, hard-to-miss-it button to take the quiz).

Who are you, and why do you think you’re some kind of thrifting experts who can judge other people on their shopping habits?

Whoah, we’ve got a little bit out of control out there! 😉 But seriously, I’ve figured the easiest way to avoid any misunderstandings is to address them as soon as possible.

Anyways, let’s get acquainted.

Who is Fida of Lessly Vintage?

Fida is the owner of a small, vintage second-hand online shop in Finland named Lessly Vintage. Yes, her name is Fida and not Lesslie (although I keep calling her Lesslie, and she doesn’t mind, so I guess she’s just earned a new nickname). Fida is cute (actually, she’s freakin’ gorgeous but don’t tell her that, or she’ll freak!), quirky, and her favorite movie character is Miss Honey from Matilda. She’s also funny and knows a whole lot about fabrics, clothes, brands, clothing patterns, etc. All the merchandise there is subject to a detailed inspection to ensure they are unique, high-quality items that you’ll need in your wardrobe. 

Who is Emmaline of the Introvert’s Guide

It’s me, the author of this intro. 🙂 Hello. It’s nice to meet you. I am an introvert (as you’ve probably suspected since it’s the name of my blog and my IG profile). IMO I’m kind of a living stereotype of a working woman/wife/mother that has had her awakening and tries to become shamelessly herself. Which is an introvert, leftie, plant-eating, thrifting queen (self-elected for life!), who is tired of putting on a f**king mask of a good girl whenever someone thinks she’s taking up too much space. Oh, and I’m trying to change the world and save the planet in the meantime as well. But please like me, anyway. 

What is an alter ego?

Are you a Beyonce fan (who isn’t?!)? Well, then you must remember her album titled “Sasha Fierce”. It is, in fact, Beyonce’s alter ego, a person she is “channeling” when she goes on stage. Sasha fierce is fun, outspoken, and glamorous. It’s everything Beyonce needs when she’s performing. 

And that’s what alter ego means. It’s a persona you’re becoming in specific situations, for example, when you’re thrifting. Your alter ego may be your complete opposite or be your bravest, smartest, most creative version of your personality.  

How do I take the quiz?

You just need to click HERE and answer ten questions. Then, you’ll see a short description of the personality that suits you best. If you want to find out more about your alter ego, there’s a link below that leads to a full page about this particular personality. And if you’re not satisfied with the result, you can retake a quiz.

 Why does my alter ego have a different name than I?

We named all the personality types for easier recognition. In fact, they became our close friends in the time we were “working on them”. We created a page for each of the characters with all the stuff they like and do. Be sure to check it out (the link below your quiz result). You may be surprised by some parts and recognize yourself in others.

Is it all for real?

As with most personality quizzes available online, this is just a fun game that we invite you to participate in. It is, by no means, any sort of psychological evaluation. Don’t feel obliged to change your name or your habits to match your quiz result. If some of the characteristics feel like your own, that’s wonderful. If not, do not hesitate to let us know in the comment section (or just a DM), and we’ll do our best to make this quiz more accurate.

How much does it cost? What do you do with my data?

Nada. Zilch. Nothing. The quiz is completely free. You don’t need to give us your money or your name. It’s anonymous, and we do not store any data you provided. 

However, if you feel like we’re vibing the same way, I’d loooove to get you onto my mailing list. It’s a no-spam, not-to-many-mails kind of list, and you can unsubscribe any time you want.

Also, check out Fida’s shop Lessly Vintage because it’s fantastic. Just make sure to do this in private because you’re gonna drool obsessively over all the freakin’ amazing clothes and accessories she sells. 

If you have any more questions or just want to let us know what an excellent job we’ve done with the quiz (yeah, we’re pretty darn proud of ourselves at the moment!), please contact us via our Instagram accounts:
