Luxe Minimalist Holiday Decorations

    The holidays are upon us and now that I’m decently moved in, I’ve decorated for Christmas! I grew up celebrating Christmas with my family and to be honest, the past few years I’ve dreaded the holiday. When you don’t have space to put your gifts and *ahem* certain family members insist on buying you junk …

Settling In

I’ve done so much in my absence from the blog. Let me do a quick rundown of the things I’ve been doing in addition to university. I’ve moved. The closer and closer I get to moving out of my parents' house, the more surreal it feels. Kinda like it's not even me, ya know? I've …

Having your Cake

People can easily get confused by fashion and style. Many people want to keep up with the “fashion Joneses” and as a result get suckered into trends and end up wasting money and looking back at old photos of themselves and cringing. I hope I never lose sight of my path and promote trends for …

Black and Blue

I bought a camper! I’m obviously going to vlog and blog about making it only the most luxe little home! That being said, however, I’m starting to feel fall hit. I’m breaking out the hand-me-down sweaters and still rocking the scarves, although much more cozily. I’m tempted to do another scarf challenge, let me know …

Thrifting Gucci’s Runway Show Lineup

        I’m not sure I told you the story about my $5 Gucci handbag. I found it at a flea market and since I’d been doing a ton of research, I concluded it was real. I’m assuming the seller thought the “G” pattern made it a Guess bag, because it is somewhat similar …

Fashion Manifesto

      A post shared by Grace (@thriftedluxe) on Sep 20, 2017 at 9:47am PDT It was recently brought up in a conversation on another fashion blogger’s Instagram that a lot of fashion bloggers have a tendency to wear things once and never again. They delete comments and all sorts of sketchy things come about because …

Mother Earth News Fair Pt 1

Remember how I said I would post Tuesday? Looks like I needed more recovery time than that. So how does one tackle a fair or convention(it was much more like the latter, not that I mind, I love conventions)? First, you need a bag that you can handle all day. It was a no-brainer for …

Road Trip

Luxury is something to be savored and appreciated, from chocolate to craftsmanship.

The Hunt Continues

I’m still searching for the perfect abode. I’ve sorted out the place and the approximate expenses. It took some time but I’ve also come to terms with the fact that the interior will not meet my aesthetic goals. As long as the layout efficiently meets my needs, I’m more than happy to live in a …
