Thrifting haul: October 2021

I had the itch to go thrift shopping sporadically last weekend. So I asked if the fam-jam wanted to come and we all hoped in the truck for the last few hours before closing at value village.

While there I thought of the game “chelseaasoflate” plays on her instagram: thrift and pass. I played this with everyone following on my instagram stories. It was a very fun interactive way to shop!

I decided this time to style the outfits I had in mind when I bought the clothes. So people reading my blog get a sneak peak before pictures are on my instagram profile!

First up is this Pant and Collar shirt combo. What’s funny is the the top was part of my thrift or pass stories and majority of people (69%) said pass on this top.

But I loved it, the top gives me tomboy/queer vibes in all the best ways. And paired with the bottoms it’s just a fun and relaxed look.

What do you think… were people just not seeing my vision?

I really lucked out with this Tuxedo coat from zara. This is something that I will wear all the time. I usually gravitate towards colour when searching through the racks or good fabric. That’s the reason you have to take it slow and steady while thrifting or else you can pass right by a gem. This item was a grey muted colour and slouchy looking hanging on the rack, but it’s a really classy-relaxed fit on.

Two of the items in this outfit are thrifted: the stripped flowy top and the jacket. I have been loving oversized clothing lately. Before I used to shy away from anything that didn’t show my shape because it made me look bigger. At this point in my life.. I really could care less. Thick and proud.

I also found this guess jacket for $30 in great condition. While trying this on, a lady stopped and took the time to tell me “nice.” Not sure if it was a nice find or it looks good… but I’ll take both or either. This shopping trip really was the day for jackets.

I also found two blouses and a pink blazer. But I think I’m going to do an outfit post inspired by legally blonde because it definitely gives me that hot pink vibes. So stay tuned!

Style Adventure: Adamson Estate

We finally went to a location that called for many pictures to be taken. It was such a pretty spot that there was three wedding parties taking photos while we were there. It was surprising that everyone worked around eachother so easily.

I snapped one photo from afar of a bridal party.

Your wowed as soon as you walk up to the property. It has a well maintained garden surrounding the whole house.

It’s in the port credit area and right off the water so I can see why so many wedding parties would want to shoot here.

The outfit I choose for this adventure is a top I literally have had since high-school. There has been several times I’ve thought about giving it away, but just couldn’t bring myself to…It’s still in such good condition.

The pants are from RW.co…they are my favourite colour. I styled the outfit with some golden details: rings and necklace to compliment the golden details on the shirt.

Lastly the hairstyle I choose was naturally dried hair so very bushy haha and I pulled it back with a head band.

Styling my latest thrifting haul

It seems like the only shopping I do lately is thrift shopping. The clothes just have more personality and you get way more bang for your buck.

I thought I would compile all my latest photos where I used my newest purchases.

This cozy top above, I knew I would get alot of wear out of. Its something I would wear just chilling around the house and something cute enough to style up!

I have been living in this green street wear top. Its perfect for pandemic-styling lately, because it seems everyone is living in lounge wear and matching sets!

My favourite purchase was this oversized brown trench coat. I needed a new winter coat, and I haven’t had one at this length before. It definitely keeps me cozy warm and stylish!

I get super excited when I see loud prints when I’m thrifting. This dress stood out amongst the racks of other dresses with a loud pop of colour. It feels like a cross between Minnie Mouse and Mrs. Maisel vibes. I have a stylish 50s hat, and some gloves that could really sell the Mrs. Maisel look!

I usually don’t like preppy clothes, but this little number of a dress was adorable. I loved the built in band around the waist to accentuate the smallest part of the body. I was scared that my hips wouldn’t fit since the shape was very rectangle. But YAY I could squeeze into it!!

There are a few pieces I have yet to style. You can see everything I bought in the video below.. Three shirts in particular that I bought for work. If you would like to see me style and post some work outfit inspo… let me know with a like and comment! 🥰

Thanks for stopping by!

Style Adventure: old Town country road

I have always wanted to style a Canadian tuxedo. When we came across this old mill off an abandon railroad I knew now was the perfect time.

I couldn’t decide between two ways of styling. The first was a full buttoned, true to Canadian tuxedo, styled with heels and gold accents.

My hair is crimped from French braids worn over night and styled with a black ribbon. It gave it a very cutesy 60s vibe.

My hair was going crazy in the below shot was a loved how fun it made the photo.

My second styling was more relaxed with deep reddish boots and an unbuttoned jean shirt. I switched up the purse as well to a more everyday relaxed style with fringe.

We followed the abandoned railroad to the end of the line just for fun and I’m glad we did because it inspired the last styling.

This is the feel of the town that I grew up in.

I hope you enjoyed my little nostalgic style adventure.
