Looking Fly on a Dime internship, fashion internship

Well, as the title states, I’m on the hunt for some fall interns. As Looking Fly on a Dime® continues to grow, it’s increasingly difficult for little ‘ol me to manage blogging daily, finishing my thrift shopping ebook, hosting events and working on on-air style segments.

That’s where you {or someone you know!} come in.

Dime Find of the Week: Forever 21 Satchel

What: Forever 21 Satchel
Why: Every woman needs that one {or several!} satchel for day to night. It’s large enough to fit your essentials, and it’s not too bulky for a night out. While I’m pretty much obsessed with Forever 21 skinny jeans because they stand the test of time and don’t get the dreaded crotch rip, the affordable retailer also has some amazing satchels for the season. If there’s one bag you want to buy now and carry it through fall and winter, this is it. Oh, and you won’t spend more than 30 bucks.

Thrifty Threads: One Thrift Store Dress, Multiple Ways

Thrifty Threads 365 is a fashion challenge where I will only thrift shop for an entire year. I’ll show you how it’s easy and wallet friendly to satisfy your style needs with secondhand finds. For full details, check the original post here.
Thrifty Threads 365: one dress, multiple ways
There’s nothing I love more than wearing a single garment multiple ways. And that’s exactly what I have with this printed dress. Well, it actually started out as a fishtail skirt {see the original post in 2010 when I had a tailor transform it from a skirt to a dress}. I immediately noticed the bold pattern when I saw it in a bin at the Goodwill Outlet. I wasn’t feeling the skirt, but knew I could have a tailor convert it into a strapless dress. I’ve worn it as a dress and now I’m rocking it as a skirt with the addition of a t-shirt and belt {both thrifted!}.
