How would you describe your style and who inspires your style? I would describe my style as classic and effortless. I like wearing pieces that make a statement and add depth in
wardrobe, so they become my favorites that I can wear year after year. My late aunt inspired my sense of style. She was the epitome of a fine dressed lady. Whether going to church or to the grocery store, she always looked stylish and very fashionable.
What are your hobbies and/or passion? I love sharing my passion for thrifting and educating others on how to do it successfully. I founded the Thrifting Atlanta community to meet others who share the same interests and passion. We host monthly thrift and brunch events, shopping bus tours and a forum for newbies to learn from the experts.
Take us down memory lane to your 1st thrift experience- who, what, when, where and why did you keep thrifting? What about thrifting do you enjoy?
My mom introduced me secondhand stores at an early age, so I learned the joy of thrift shopping and how to create fashionable wardrobes on a modest budget.
What's your favorite thrift store(s) and why? My favorite chain of thrift stores is Goodwill, because I am rarely disappointed. I always walk out with an item that I love. I can also find a Goodwill in any city when I travel.
What's your thrift store budget? I rarely limit myself to a budget when I am thrifting. I only buy an item if I love it and can pair it with other pieces I have in my wardrobe. So whether I spend $5 or $50, I get the same joy and satisfaction with my purchase.
What was your inspiration for starting your blog. As a self-confessed blog stalker, I quickly realized there were few bloggers who looked like me and shared my love for thrifting. So I started Two Stylish Kays to fill that void. I use it as my outlet to share my love of fashion, thrift shopping and inspiring women to look stylish all the time.
