Thrifted Thursdays: 04.20.17

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

Thrifted Thursdays: 02.02.17

We’re currently en route from winter in Newfoundland to summer in Australia…via Vancouver, haha. It made packing a single backpack a little tricky, outfit-wise.

What usually happens is whoever’s wearing the least complicated outfit is on … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 01.20.17

Thrifted Thursdays: 01.12.17

Spend enough time shopping at secondhand stores, and eventually thrifted finds take over your closet. That’s what has happened to us, anyways. We love getting inspired while browsing and sorting through the racks at thrift shops. It’s like a feelgood (and good-for-the-environment) treasure hunt. This year, we’re dedicating Thursday posts to looks created with secondhand clothing. We’ll even try to add in some footwear and … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 01.12.17
