Hiiiii! :) I'm Brittany Xavier and I began my personal style blog, Thrifts and Threads in December 2013 to highlight my affordable finds as well as brands I find worth the splurge, those investment pieces I'll wear again and again.

I currently live in Old Town Pasadena with my husband Anthony and daughter Jadyn and our french bulldog named EloiseΒ (and I'm just obsessed with the three of them)!

My style is versatile, casual, comfortable and a bit edgy. We're a family that enjoys city life, traveling as much as possible, quiet moments at home and everything in between. My blog first started out as only fashion but over the last three years so much of it really includes the lifestyle aspect of my everyday life and love that you guys are such a large part of it! :)

My hubby has been a regular contributor to the site with our weekly Blogging Tips series, created for those of you who would like to start your own blog or looking for ways to efficiently grow one you already have. Check out Blogging Tips and stay tuned for more upcoming weekly posts!

Making my blog my full-time job wouldn't have been possible without the support of my readers and I hope this space serves as a daily dose of inspiration and happiness. I shared a bit about my journey to making this into a full-time job and my hubby also wrote a post when he quit his job to join me full-time. These will give you a bit more backstory on where we're at today!

I'm incredibly thankful for every one of you who stops by, so please drop me a line to introduce yourself! We really strive to be a resource to you guys and listen to suggestions of what type of content you want to see more of. So whether it's Instagram, or e-mail, always feel free to reach out and share your thoughts. Thanks so much for visiting!

    Hey Brittany!

    I just stumbled upon your blog and love it. I’m in Pasadena half the year. The other half in NYC. Who does your hair? I usually head to Nine Zero One to get my hair done. Any place decent in Pasadena? I’ve been searching high and low. Where do you go? By the way, you rock!

    Wow! It’s feels good to learn that your husband quit his job to join you fully. I look forward to the time people will appreciate bloggers and blogging more in my part of the world. I’m also glad you are a wife and mom…some folks think blogging is just for single ladies with no future ambition. Great job!
