My name is Nicole. I’m a 44-year-old wife and mother of three awesome kids, aged 12, 10 and 8. I started style blogging in August 2012 after my husband lost his job and I discovered thrifting as an avenue for affordable fashion and retail therapy! Read all about the beginning here! He found another job soon after, but I continued with my adventure of shopping second hand for myself for a full year, kept going for the next six years, and I’m still going strong! Originally called VV Boutique Style, I rebranded as The Spirited Thrifter in March 2015. I have had great adventures sharing my love of thrifting, sustainable fashion and everyday style and am always up for more! Here are some other facts about me:
- I moved from Alberta, Canada to Houston, Texas in July 2017. It has been a major transition and I’m so happy y’all (!) are following along with my journey!
- I worked as a pediatric Occupational Therapist for more than 15 years before moving to Texas. I love love loved my job and considered it a great blessing.
- My photos are real-life styled! My kids have been my faithful photographers for years and will work for gum and video games!
- Best for last, I love Jesus and know that from Him all blessings flow – including the privilege of thrifting and blogging!
