Thanks so much for popping by! For more fashion related content, be sure to check out my Style section. And on a random note, these photos were shot on both my Nikon D810 camera as well as my Samsung Galaxy S10e! As an old school blogger, these advancements in technology are mind blowing. The ability to blog has become much easier than it was when I first began The Pretty Secrets and that’s so rad!

A Thrifted Stampede Outfit

A Thrifted Stampede Outfit

A Thrifted Stampede Outfit

A summer staple is going to a Stampede… or at least dressing like you’re attending one. A thrifted stampede outfit is the best way to go. Regardless of the situation, I always think a thrifted outfit is the best option. That shouldn’t be a surprise around here. Did I wear a tablecloth as a skirt? It’s very possible. Would I do it again? Of course. Anyway, keep scrolling for this 90% vintage / 10% new outfit. But Sandy, which part is the 10%!? Just guess.

 

OUTFIT DETAILS

VINTAGE  denim ish cowboy hat 
RAY BAN aviator sunglasses – c/o Shopbop (the 10% not thrifted item 😉 )
THRIFTED jacket striped tie top
THRIFTED tablecloth
VINTAGE western boots inherited from my mom!

A Thrifted Stampede Outfit

Let this be a lesson that anything can be clothing if you really put your mind to it. Shirts can be worn backwards, tablecloths can be skirts! There is no limit to what the imagination can create. A truly spectacular look is just a thrift store away! This goes for a thrifted stampede outfit or for any other occasion really.

Full Face of Nude by Nature

Full Face of Nude by Nature

Full Face of Nude by Nature

In 2018 the Australian brand Nude By Nature first launched their cruelty-free all natural makeup line in drugstores across Canada. But they’ve been around since 2008! I’m all for more drugstore options, especially when the ingredients aren’t concerning. The only thing that is concerning is the lack of diversity in the shade range. There’s always room for improvement! With that said, check out my new video: Full Face of Nude by Nature (and a few other products because I didn’t have the full line) 😉

Peanuts x Levis Collaboration OOTD

Peanuts x Levis Collaboration OOTD

Whenever there is a collaboration with Peanuts, I am there for it. When I was in Japan, I even made a point of visiting the Snoopy Museum. To say I’m a super fan is probably an understatement. Keeping that in mind, I was even more stoked when Peanuts AND Levi’s joined forces to create another a capsule collection. This isn’t the first time and I hope it won’t be the last! In the US they even had a Snoopy print denim. Never have I ever been so excited about a yellow sweater in my life. So here’s my Peanuts x Levis Collaboration OOTD. 

OUTFIT DETAILS

OLLIE QUINN isabella sunglasses – c/o
ALDO  rearka earrings – c/o 
LEVIS peanuts sweater  – c/o 
THRIFTED scarf 
LEVI’S ribcage jeans – c/o
THRIFTED  bag 

Peanuts x Levis Collaboration OOTD

Please keep me in mind should you hear anything regarding any other Peanuts collaborations as I need to know. Maybe there’s a Google alert I can sign up for? 🤔On that note, thanks for popping by!

Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog

Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog

I had such a swell time on my trip that I even made at Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog to accompany my Abbotsford BC Travel Guide! It was a whirlwind trip filled with fresh blooms a la the annual Abbotsford Tulip Festival, delicious food, and curious sightings. We had a major Twin Peaks moment too! A mysterious man had a face tattooed on the back of his head (more on that in the vlog!) We also spent a couple days in Sasquatch country which was a lifelong dream come true. There’s even a museum devoted to the elusive sasquatch! 

Other Travel Posts

If my Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog hasn’t sated the desire for travel content, feel free to check out the travel section of my blog. Or even head to my YouTube Channel for more travel vlogs. Exploring offbeat travel destinations is one of my specialities. Especially if it involves an oddity I’ve discovered firsthand or from Atlas Obscura! With that said, I’m slowly making my way through the 411 oddities available in Canada alone!
