Thrifty Friend #18 | Nikki of Style Rehab

I’ve been grabbing a lot of style inspiration from Instagram lately. So it’s no surprise that today’s Thrifty Friend is someone I found while style searching on IG.

I’m really excited about today’s post because it’s another installment of my LifeStyle Features here on WNJ! I met this blogger at an event in D.C. 2 (or so) years ago.
