Nicheless: Blogger Struggles

Blogger struggles: Whitehorse blogger Poutine and Prada with her cat.

Poutine and Prada though the years

When I first started posting regularly on Poutine and Prada I talked about beauty products almost exclusively. It was where I was at at the time.

With these changes come some blogger struggles. I’m having a hard time with this because my blog doesn’t fit neatly into any one category any more. I feel like Poutine and Prada is disorganized and I’ve fallen into the trap of comparing my work with that of the bloggers I admire. My photos never look as good as theirs and my content never seems to read as smoothly.

I like Artizia’s clothes but I think they are ridiculously over priced, sometimes I have trouble with the sizing (big boob problems, le sigh), and most recently, they are not ethical.

I love second hand shopping. I’m not an expert but I have snagged a few amazing pieces over the years.

Today I am going to share the fruits of my labour with you, my lovely readers! Here are my favourite online consignment stores and thrifting options!
