Thrifted Thursday: 06.15.17

On our last trip to the Salvation Army Thrift Store in St. John’s, we both spotted velvety dresses and were smitten. We’ve always thought velvet dresses were great for Fall and Winter, since the fabric tends to be more heavyweight and is quite often dark in colour. Not to mention it’s a fabric that looks lovely paired with tights! We thought, though, that the dresses … Continue reading Thrifted Thursday: 06.15.17

Thrifted Thursdays: 05.25.17

Having a little trouble here writing an opening paragraph since our outfits have absolutely nothing in common this week, haha. Which you’ll soon see.

Jess’ tattoo choker that she wore 24/7/365 in 1998? It’s so back. Like, totally. Strappy tank tops and platform shoes and flannel plaids? Yep. A Clueless remake? Well, not yet. (And that fake Facebook post circulating … Continue reading Give ’em the Slip (Dress)
