This blog post idea has been in my mind for a couple months, but I kept putting it off. I think maybe the announcement that Fixed Coffee is soon closing its doors really put my butt in gear. The last time I bought clothes in a mall/retail chain was December 2014. I was in Sydney, Australia, and bought a NYE tank top at Cotton On. … Continue reading Local Love: 1 Blazer, 5 Looks
We knew our day of shooting with MJ would be fun, but we were honestly unprepared for just HOW fun. (Okay, fine, the champagne probably played a role, but we’d like to think the bubbles just enhanced the bubbles that were already there. This comparison sounded so much better in my head.) The day was happy and warm and gracious, just like Melanie and the … Continue reading Maddox Cove with Melanie Jacqueline
Sometimes we’ve thrift-shopped in a hurry. It’s not exactly an enjoyable way to do it, but it certainly forces one to prioritize, haha. (Trying things on in a fitting room? Completely out of the question!) Even when we’re pressed for time, we’ll always have a quick browse up and down the ‘Light Jackets’ section. They’re a little heavier and bulkier than shirts, so they’re faster … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 04.20.17
The amount of time we’ve spent staring out the window in the past few days is a little ridiculous, haha. We admit it–we’re completely mesmerized by the Bay packed full of ice. It showed up in a steady stream over the weekend, like a parade in which only ice floats participated. (There were probably a few seals and birds, too). Yesterday morning, the Bay was … Continue reading The Ice is in.
Ever turn an upcoming event into an excuse to buy an outfit….even though you know very well you probably won’t make it to said event? Jess bought this Nicole Miller dress back in 2011, “for a wedding” in Australia, haha. A wedding we never ever attended. So, here it is, finally having its moment in the spotlight–just six years later. Jess’s dress (does this qualify … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 03.16.17
We’ve been home for a week now. We came home with twice the luggage we left with, haha. Funny how that happens, hey?! We found so many pretty secondhand things in Australia. (In our defense, we only bought about a quarter of what we wanted to buy and bring home, haha). (We probably spent just as much on burgers as we did on clothes). Thrift/Secondhand … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 03.02.17
It feels pretty sweet when you score designer duds at thrifty prices. Which is what happened this past week, thanks to the super-duper flea market-esque sale Model Citizens had on the go. As much as we drool over what walks down the runways at Fashion Week, our lifestyle just doesn’t support that kinda price tag, haha. (We’ve actually walked away from a couple dresses at … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 01.26.17
