I love the cold and the holidays, but how is the year over already?! One thing that people tend to do towards the end of the year is let the colder temps keep them from wearing bright colors. Late fall and winter is no excuse to enter the neutral zone with your clothes.

That’s where the Metaphor collection at Sears comes in. Not only are the threads stylish and affordable, you won’t have any problem finding classic cuts in bright colors and textures. They’re perfect for the modern woman who craves fly apparel and shoes.

I’ve noticed something interesting happening to me. Well, it’s nothing new, but as my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge comes to an end, I’ve realized thrift shop prices have spoiled me.
