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.

Wait, there’s more to Canadian clothing than denim, flannel shirts and toques? Who knew? I should watch it, I may need to move there after January 2017.
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)
Thanks so much for the shout out and for your kind words! If ever you head North, let me know and I will show you a “spirited” good time! I love My Edit and also Life Preloved (her site is down but you can find her on Instagram and FB: https://www.instagram.com/lifepreloved/?hl=en. What we really need is a North American Thrifting Tour. That would be EPIC!
xoxoxoxo, your kindred “spirit”

ps. my blog name is a TRIPLE entendre – spirited personality, spirited bevvies AND filled with the Holy Spirit – I’m a Christ follower :)
