Thrifty Threads 365: Mixing Plaid Prints {$20 Outfit!}

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.


While we all know that mixing prints is easy to do {just have at least one cohesive color in both patterns}, there’s another way to have fun by mixing and matching. Wearing the same print in different hues can amp up any look. That can mean red polka dots with black polka dots or blue stripes with orange stripes. For my latest thrifty threads look, I went with plaid on plaid.

Oh, and the entire look is thrifted from head to toe and less than $20.

Officially or unofficially, all black is the uniform for fall and winter. Even color enthusiasts like myself are trading in brightly hued clothes for more subdued palettes. All black outfits have two major benefits: they are universally slimming and are always chic. However, some looks can be a little too, well, basic or even come off as harsh.

In this week’s Cubicle Chic, I’ll show you how to easily wear all black in a minimal yet super stylish way.

Beauty on a Dime: The Must Have Eyeshadow Primer {& It’s Less than $3!}

A few weeks ago I attended a Family Dollar beauty event and to say that I was overwhelmed would be an understatement {check out a portion of the beauty goods I walked away with here}. But it was a good overwhelmed. Family Dollar had a ton of brands on hand to discuss their new and existing products and one of the suppliers was L.A. Colors. I naturally gravitated toward their booth because I had never heard of them! But I’m so glad I changed that. Besides having a full range of makeup {less than $5!}, I fell in love with one item in particular.

The L.A. Colors Eyeshadow Primer promises to keep your shadow in place and no creasing. After trying it for three weeks, I can honestly tell you this product works! It gets the beauty on a dime stamp of approval.
