She Thrifted

juliethrift

Meet Julie from We So Thrifty. She thrifted that cardigan and her mom thrifted that dress. Go Julie's Mom!
There is so much to say about Julie... First of all, she lives in Hamilton. I am always peeking at her pictures to see if I can recognize where she is posing. I could just ask her but I amuse myself by creeping her pictures instead. She shops at all the same places I shop at, so it's fun to read about my familiar stomping grounds through a different perspective. In 2012 Julie broke up with the mall (you can read all about it here in a rather cute post) and is now on a strict thrift diet. I love my thrift stores but I don't know if I can break up with Winners... two thumbs up to my girl Julie!
Best of all, Julie weaves these great stories in her blog posts. Stories about her highschool days, about the fonts used by Christian Dior (seriously a fascinating read) and about the thrifted treasures in her mama's house.
I also just found out she has the same silk wrap dress that I have but in a slightly different print. I can only see this ending on one way... a joint outfit post. There will be so much animal print your eyes will burn... get ready!

I have been following Julia since I found her blog on your roll a couple of weeks ago! She's adorable. I can't wait to see the Betsey dress she thrifted a couple of weeks ago, but only showed parts of!

I have never officially broken up with the mall, but I feel like I never shop there anyway. I go and I'm like, "this is so expensive, but yet cheaply made. I despise this." I really should make it official.

I LOVE Julie's dress!

I'm not sure if I could give up the mall, or Winners (OMG amazing things and deals). My issue with Winners and Thrift Stores is that they are very ugly and I don't enjoy sifting through the plethora of garbage to find the gems -- despite there always being many gems.

Such a cute outfit, thanks for sharing her blog.
How great that you are living in the same city.
I so wish I could visit Canada or US asap to go thrift shopping!! Definitely way better than here in Holland.
