Remember this vintage gold maxi skirt I thrifted a few weeks ago? I first debuted it on Instagram and I knew I had to have it. At $10, it’s one fifth of my monthly Thrifty Threads 365 shopping budget, but like I said, I had to have it! It’s a maxi, pleated and solid gold. What’s not to love?!

When it comes to such a bold piece, it’s easy to think, “how will I wear this?” Well, I kept the rest of my look minimal and let the skirt steal the show.

When it’s chilly out, but I still want to wear a dress and no tights, a long skirt is my go-to fashion choice. I purchased this Calvin Klein skirt a few months ago for less than $10 and it’s safe to say I’m in love with her. I first wore the skirt during Fashion Week. Back then I paired it with a vintage crop top, but this time around I wanted a more conservative look for church. But of course I had to throw in a sporty jacket to mix it up.

Under my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge, I can only spend a total of $50 each month. How much was my September tally? Just $8. Yes, less than $10 for the 25 or so items I thrifted. Check out how I did it, my favorite picks and thrift outfits for September.
