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.
September was a really great month for me. Besides releasing my thrift shopping book and celebrating my 5-year blogiversary, I had some amazing thrift store scores. I’m talking about vintage threads and designer duds for next to nothing.
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.

Leather is probably one of the most fun trends for fall. Traditionally, it’s a difficult fabric to wear in professional settings. But this season, leather and leather trim have been added to a number of office appropriate pieces. Of course it’s still important to follow a few key rules when wearing leather to work: nothing too short, too tight and avoid a head-to-toe look.

In this week’s Cubicle Chic, here are three different ways to style leather for the office. We promise you won’t channel a dominatrix!

There are a few things I love: leopard print, shoes and HGTV. So when I heard that designer, HGTV personality and cutie David Bromstad had a line of footwear with Naturalizer, I was all in! Last week I attended a luncheon for a launch of the fall collection. Every piece looked amazing and David is the best…and much taller in person.

Dime Find of the Week: Nubian Skin Nude Lingerie for Women of Color

What: Nubian Skin, nude lingerie for women of color

Why: All “nudes” aren’t created equally. It’s super frustrating when a shade that’s been deemed nude is far from compatible with my brown skin. From needing a bra that I can wear under a white blouse or hosiery that mimics my actual skin tone, black and brown women have struggled to find such products. That’s where Nubian Skin comes in. The UK-based company provides nude-tone lingerie for brown skin ladies. Can we all collectively say, AMEN! I first heard about Nubian Skin about a month ago and now you can finally buy the undergarments online.
