Other Babes in Thriftland - Megan

I am so excited to feature this next lady with you all. My next Other Babe in Thriftland is Megan from the dynamic duo of Two Birds.  She is actually a good friend of mine IRL.  Not only is she one of my thrifting idols, she also gives great advice, is super funny and really nice. She always finds great things and her house is filled with all her cool treasures. I also love her ability to take something that may be ugly or weird by itself and make it into a cool outfit. See picture 1. Could I make that shirt look cool? Probably not. Such is the power of Megan.

When I asked her to share some thrifting tips or a story, she told me this: "So I go to the thrift store so much that one day I was shopping and I spotted a faux fur coat. Since I (love love) love faux fur, I ran over to it so no one could grab it before me. Only then did I realize that the coat used to be mine, I never wore it and I was the one who had donated it to that thrift store."  Now who hasn't done the same thing? I've gone to a store, picked up a cute shirt only to realize I was drawn to it because it used to be mine. Oh man.

Thrifted items - shirt, bracelet and shoes

Thrifted items - Shirt, skirt and belt

Thrifted items - shorts, belt, shoes and bracelet

Doesn't she find the best stuff?  Go and check out her and her sister, Nora over at their blog and say hi for me!  Remember, if you want to join in the fun just send me an email at with a link to your favorite outfits. If you want to share some tips or a story like Megan, that would be great too!


  1. LOL, Megan is awesome - love her and Nora both and they definitely are thrifting idols to watch!

  2. That's funny, I've definitely been in a consignment store before thinking that the cutest stuff in there came from my closet!

  3. thanks for the nice post! and yes, you could definitely make that shirt look cute! (if you can hang pictures evenly using a book as a level, you can do anything!)
