Thrifting It Up With Ose

So the fabulous and very fashionable Ose came to visit LA (from NY) for the Merge summit and then a day of thrifting with me :) They say that you can tell a lot about a woman based on the way that she shops and Ose and I were two peas in a pod!

She runs an online vintage boutique for plus size women at Check out her site for some amazing vintage items.

We found a ton of items and thanks to the plastic bag ban in LA, she walked out with an armload of fantabulous items:

When thrifting, I always try to wear a skirt and a small top so that I can easily try on clothing. For our shopping spree, I wore a thrifted vintage 70s skirt with a black lace bra top and a black vintage purse. I love the colors in this skirt!!! It was too big so I had to creatively pin it in the back.

Here we are trying on some of the clothing that we picked out:

Its crazy how many positive connections you make online and I am happy to have had a chance to meet and shop with Ose.
