Today we have the lovely Nora from Two Birds (you saw her sister Megan last week). Nora is the younger and somewhat quieter of the two but just as fun. Not only is she very sweet but she will pick up guys for you, show you her sweet dance moves or serenade you with some karaoke. Definitely a friend worth having! Nora (like Megan) has such a unique sense of style and you can really see it in the items she gets from the thrift stores. Some things I would look at and have no idea what to do with it but she always makes it into a great outfit.
Other than my sister, megan bird, my mom is the biggest thrifter I know. We had to learn our mad thrifting skills from someone, right? But, my mom thrifts so much that whenever my daughter, Mimi, and I walk into a particular thrift store (which happens to be my mom's favorite), Mimi always looks around and says, "I want to see grandma"! It's as though she thinks grandma lives at the thrift store and is just always going to be there. (and if you ask my dad, he might claim this to be partially true). Oftentimes, we do end up running into my mom while we are shopping, so she is really not helping me to dispel Mimi's belief that grandma makes her second home at the store. so, while i don't know who thrifts more, Megan or my mom (i definitely come in at a close third), i do know that Mimi has never thought megan lived at the thrift store. and that is saying something. although, i think someday, when Megan and i are retired and constantly out thrifting, our future grandchildren will think the same about us!
Here are some of my favorite outfits!
Love this weird shirt and the baby bump :) Thrifted items: shirt, boots, necklace, belt. View full post here!
I hope you loved Nora's style as much as I do! Don't forget to check her out over at Two Birds and tell her I said hi!
