Ah, can you believe Thrifty Threads 365 is in its eighth month?! Yup, I haven’t purchased any new clothes or accessories in eight months. I’ve given you a few updates throughout this no-new-clothes shopping challenge and so far it’s been pretty easy going.

Well, that was until I broke my toe a few weeks ago.

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!}.

Every woman has that skirt, shirt or purse she can’t live without. For me, right now, my favorite flirty skirt is an LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s tulle maxi {no longer available} and I’m kinda sorta finally getting into the crop top trend, so I’m wearing my vintage top from Clothes Contact in San Francisco.
The last time I rocked the tulle skirt was this past winter with a silky top and fur vest {seen here} and I just wore the crop top a few weeks ago with a maxi dress {seen here}.
Though I love the tulle skirt and crop top, I’ve never worn them together. I finally changed that!

Can you believe it? The year is almost half way over and the Thrifty Threads 365 challenge is at the half mark. That means I haven’t purchased a new piece of clothing or accessory for six months. And when I did buy clothes, they were secondhand and I never spent more than $50 each month.
This is my third go round with the Thrifty Threads 365 fashion challenge and a few things are different. Well, one thing in particular. YOU!
