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.


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.

Last month I shared I would be resurrecting a few reader favorites and Fab, Fit and Frugal is officially back. Of course “looking fly on a dime” involves fashion, but being fly is an overall lifestyle, so it’s only natural for fitness to be included in that. Oh, and I also gained a few pounds this summer and can’t zip up a few of my dresses. Eek! So now I’m really all about being healthy on a budget.

One of my former bad habits I occasionally fall back into involves soda and juice. I have a major sweet tooth, so these drinks make me happy! However, the additives are pretty horrible and not to mention what the sugar does to your body and skin.

So that’s why I was delighted to learn about Hint Water. It’s the perfect fix when you want something other than boring water, but need to ditch the soda and juice.

What: Affordable, statement coats from TB Dress

Why: As much as I hate to admit it, summer is a distant memory. Fall is in full swing and winter’s knocking on our door. Instead of your same neutral coat, it’s time to try a bold piece of outerwear. I love discovering sites that are new to me and TB Dress is full of fun, girly coats and most are less than $50. A lot of these coats are fly enough to become the focal point of your wardrobe.
