HI EVERYONE!

Today we’re keepin’ it cool with blue denim. Button-down sleeveless denim dresses to be exact!

M's BONGO dress was $5.99 while E's GUESS dress was $9.99.

How are you keeping cool this summer?!

M + E

Over here in Seattle, it’s finally not too hot and not too chilly. We had a bit of overcast today but all-in-all it was a wonderful day—we hope you had the same!

//

M and E decided to play with the same colors and pieces of clothing today. High-waisted jean shorts, button up shirts, paper bowler hats, and two-strap sandals.

On E:

- White high-waisted shorts: 7.99
- Red flannel button-up: $4.99
- Black paper bowler hat: $3.99
- Red two-strap sandals: $10.00

On M:

- Red high-waisted shorts: $5.99
- Blue jean button-up: $3.99
- Red paper bowler hat: $5.99
- White two-strap sandals: *not a thrifted item* $19.99 @ Target (couldn’t pass them up, last pair left in stock and was in her size… In other words, it was just meant to be!)

We also went thrifting today so be prepared for what’s to come! Lately, vintage items are definitely grabbing our attention. Upcycling some of our thrifted pieces have also been keeping us very busy so stay tuned for the one-of-a-kind pieces of clothing we make!

STAY SWEET & BEAUTIFUL!

Hi loves!

We’ve been working on multiple projects which explains our super long hiatus recently—but here we are, upcycling thrifted pieces.

We found a vivid ultraviolet blue short-sleeved long (if that makes any sense) 80s blazer with a missing button and decided to revamp it.

- 1” Italian-made buttons by La Mode (from Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Store for 40% off of $2.00)

- Black chiffon blouse with an embroidered high-collar

- Burgundy bowler hat to pull the outfit together

As for the bottom half, jazz it up with sheer black nylons!

Hope you had a great Independence Day and are enjoying your summer—we’ll be right back!

XO,

M + E

Two very different thrift fits for you today!

E and our bride-to-be photographer/amazing friend, Faye, are jetting out to Vegas soon for Faye’s bachelorette celebration. If E has time, she’s going to hit up the thrift shops of Sin City.

M is currently collaborating and representing ThriftME206 for an upcoming industry mixer event coming up next week which is hosted by OutsideThinc & SmG Music and with performances by ASHES The ChosenContempo, & DJ Jody J. The theme is BLUE; if E can make it back on time, you already know we’ll be in thrifted blue outfits!

Hope everyone is soaking up the sun and spreading out positive vibrations <3

Summer is almost in full effect—we’ve got these cool and fresh thrift fits for you today!

Our layout will be going through some changes here and there… We have been tinkering with HTML which should mean Hard, Tricky, Monstrous, Loathsome.

We got this!

ALDO A-List S/S ‘14 Launch Party

It was such a great experience to have been hosts for ALDO’s A-List launch party on Sunday, May 18th. The few weeks that we had to send out invites, plan and implement a promotional photo shoot for the event and find our thrifted outfits for the party was very exciting and—not gonna lie—very nerve-racking (we had to take a shot of vodka at Joey’s next door before walking in)!

But that’s not the point, the event turned out beyond our expectations—close family, friends and new faces were all in attendance and we could not have been more grateful for the amount of love, support and ALDO purchases that took place throughout the night. We’d like to thank Vita Coco Coconut Water, KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn, Sephora and Oscar Hailar (DJ CortexXx) for being a part of the event!

Take a look at some of the pictures:

We’d also like to thank Faye Hong (our amazing friend and photographer), Yeye (Maria Manio Photography), and AJ Franklin for taking pictures during the party!

And shout out to Ellen Hong, Olivia Ong, Jake Koistinen, Dennis Lam, and Elson Tran for being so MAJOR! You guys should all apply to be professional models.

E's thrifted pants were $5.97 (no brand) and M's thrifted Zara dress was $10! Both finds were thrifted at the Bellevue Goodwill. We saw that the prints were so similar so it only made sense that we pair it up and stay twinning ;)!

Hope everyone is doing great—and if you didn’t hear—we’re starting our YouTube channel soon! Hmm.. What will our videos be about?!

XO,

M + E

Details on these ALDO items and our thrifted outfits to come ;)!

We’re now on the “All Events in City” platform! Join in and check out our upcoming event with ALDO:
