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.
