ADDICTED favourite Ralph is back with a new EP and some words of wisdom to share with fashion-savvy fans.
Ralph (née Raffa Weyman) has been a rising star in the Toronto and now North American music scene since making her debut in 2015. Her silky vocals, irresistible 80s beats and sweet, vulnerable and sassy lyrics have endeared her to an ever-growing fanbase. It’s easy to see how it’s easy to love her; Ralph combines inspiration from influences like Stevie Nicks, Donna Summer and Sade, with a pop sensibility that is all her own, and the result is completely addictive.
Now Ralph is back with her latest EP, Flashbacks and Fantasies. The record drops today, along with this awesome new video for her single “Looking for you.” Check it out here.
Now let’s hear from our pal Ralph on sustainable shopping practices – aka thrifting!
I think my love of thrifting comes from my Mum. She’s always had such unique, special pieces in her closet collected from flea markets, vintage stores, travelling the world, etc. I love that each one has a history and a story behind it, and that no one else has the same item. When we were kids my mum would only dress us in second hand clothes – I had this suede fringe jacket when I was five that I was obsessed with, we bought it in Kensington Market (one of Toronto’s best thrifting neighborhoods.) As I grew up, I adopted her thrill of treasure hunting and to this day, I can spend hours in a thrift or consignment store. The thrill of finding a vintage Dolce and Gabbana silk dress for $12 is indescribable (true story!) So here are my top 5 thrifting tips so you can hopefully score deals like this one!
