When we’re thrift shopping, we’re not always drawn towards the exact same things–especially when we start filtering through the dress racks. (Which is one of our favourite sections to shop, since there’s usually a wide variety of styles, colours, and fabrics.) Jess has some sort of internal lace detector, haha. Give her 5 minutes to browse the store, and she’ll return with a bunch of … Continue reading The Dresses We Can’t Resist
Not sure why, but we’ve been digging the long black dresses lately. ESPECIALLY if they involve lace or mesh. It could just be they’re classic? Or the fact they contrast so lovely against coloured hair? Or it’s possible we’re in a dark mood since it’s still cold and snow still falls? (We are your typical Canadians. Can’t even write a blog post without mentioning the … Continue reading The Long Black Dress
Y’know what grabs our attention more than anything else when we’re browsing through the racks at secondhand shops? LACE. No matter how much of a rush we’re in, if we spy something made of lace, we pretty much HAVE to stop and look at it, haha. We’ve probably been late because of secondhand lace. It could be a skirt for toddlers–we have to at least … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 03.30.17
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
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
This post isn’t just for prom, either. It’s also for that dress you bought for a work holiday party–or formal night on that family cruise back in 2010–and just haven’t worn it since. Let’s be honest, here. Sequins are pretty. Maybe that’s why we find them so irresistible? (“Oooooooooooooooo sequins!!”) And maybe that’s why we think it’s such a shame to wear something so pretty … Continue reading Sequins: They’re Not Just for Prom Anymore.
If you’ve ever shopped at Model Citizens, you know that place is a treasure chest of stylish goodies. It’s officially a “Contemporary Designer Resale and Vintage Designer Boutique”, but I like calling it a treasure chest. We’ve both been shopping there ever since it opened, and we’ve yet to go in there and not fall in love with something. And, since the stock changes all … Continue reading Modeling Citizens
