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.

We have less than 30 days left in 2014 and that means I’ve been going strong with my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge for 11 months now! I can’t believe the year is coming to an end, but I really can’t believe TT365 is almost a wrap.

For November, I hit up a few Salvation Army locations, two to be exact. My scores range from a faux leather skirt with the tags still attached to vintage sweaters and a dainty purse.

Check out a few of the items I thrifted this month and see how much I spent!

It happened to me last week. I quickly checked my weather app before getting dressed and saw the high was going to be in the 40’s. I was excited to not have to wear my down coat or boots for the first time in what seemed like an eternity. However when I got off work, well after the sun had set, my poor legs, covered only in thin tights, almost gave out while trekking to the subway. It was 28 degrees and I was literally underdressed for the occasion.

Don’t be me. Instead follow these simple style solutions. Here’s how to dress for a polar vortex.
