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!}.

Cubicle Chic: style solutions for work

We’re finally in the thick of summer. Here in New York, some days it feels like you can cut the humidity with a knife.

The key is to stick to lightweight fabrics.

In this week’s Cubicle Chic, we’re showing you a few options for staying cool at the office when the temperature skyrockets. These are perfect when you’re clueless on what to wear to the office when it’s unbearably hot.

What’s In Store: Payless Summer Styles

What's in Store at Payless, summer accessories

I haven’t been to Payless in what seems like forever. And why would I, I’m still going strong with Thrifty Threads 365. However, I was out with my cousin and she wanted to pop into the affordable shoe chain to find some sandals. While she was browsing, I was focused on the prices because in the past I remember being amazed at a $60 price tag for one of the designer collaboration shoes. I mean, it’s Payless, is anyone really going to pay that much?!
Luckily on this visit, I wasn’t dumbfounded by the prices and I saw a few cute shoes and accessories for summer.
