Friday ReBlog: Two Canadian Thrifters

O Canada! (gratuitous pics of stylish and delicious prime minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, the equally stylish and delicious Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, here.)

Today we’ve got 2 Canadian bloggers who, from all I can gather, know each other IRL and sometimes thrift for each other.  Sigh.  My dream.

First off: thanks to reader Kathleen S. who alerted us to The Spirited Thrifter. (Note: you, too, can suggest your favorite thrift bloggers in the comments below or here on the original “help me find more thrift blogs!” post).

Author Nicole sounds like my soul mate.  Evidence:

“Last week, I *helped* my friend Karlynn at her excuse to buy more Pyrex garage sale, and while *helping* her drank sangria.”  (The “Spirited” in her blog title refers to her personality but also her love of spirits.)

Or: “What’s a mom to do with 3 hours to herself but go thrifting”?

Plus she makes her kids thrift and puts thrift stores on her vacation sight-seeing list.  My kind of lady.

 

The Spirited Thrifter led me to Blue Collar Red Lipstick, where Adina isn’t afraid to style herself up while living in a dress-down kind of city.  She’s got a tailored look I love livened up by lots of color.  Many of her things are consigned/thrifted, and she has a whole section on work capsule wardrobes if you need some visual inspiration on how to put together a dressier or more colorful capsule wardrobe.

 

Happy Friday, Thrifters! I’ll be back next week with a fun travel wardrobe from a recent trip to Asheville, NC.

    1. Here’s another great Canadian thrifter – Jentine at http://myedit.blogspot.com. She has a perfect mix of glamorous and laid back style, particularly vintage stuff. And a couple other Canadiennes I follow regularly, though they don’t thrift much: http://highheelsinthewilderness.blogspot.com/

      Indeed, Canada has many fashionable people (including the Prime Minister & his wife as noted above. Seriously get a load of this picture of him in a pink shirt and white pants being shot by water pistols at Toronto’s Pride parade; if I remember correctly the man under his armpit is a recently arrived Syrian refugee. It’s everything good about Canada in one shot IMHO: https://www.google.com/search?q=justin+trudeau+gay+pride&espv=2&biw=1234&bih=841&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjF17yO_7vOAhWFQCYKHeVfDAMQ_AUIBigB#imgdii=vomI9DtvgkGOUM%3A%3BvomI9DtvgkGOUM%3A%3BdZD8FKETx1PuxM%3A&imgrc=vomI9DtvgkGOUM%3A)
