I have to admit I’m not much of a Halloween person, but I do appreciate the creativity that people put into their costumes! But let’s face it, there’s some serious pressure when it comes to finding the perfect getup. Instead of buying a packaged Halloween costume, why not hit the thrift shop? While my everyday looks come from the thrift shop {I’m still doing my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge and ONLY thrifting for a full year}, secondhand stores are also the perfect resource for any homemade costume due to the unique items you can find.
Check out 5 thrift store Halloween costumes that are affordable, unique and when October 31 is over, you can still wear these pieces! Each costume requires less than five items and you can find them at any thrift shop.

5 Year Blogiversary-looking-fly-on-a-dime

5 years. Yes. Five. Whole. Years. I can’t believe Looking Fly on a Dime® celebrates its fifth blogiversary today. I started the site after being laid off from my job at a fashion magazine and I had no idea this little website would lead to repeat appearances on the Today Show, Nate Berkus Show and a correspondent gig for a local NYC station.
It’s been a great five years and I’m excited for what’s to come. Besides my thrift shopping ebook that’s being released next week, you’ll see some new and revamped “old” features coming to the site.
