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!}.

Last week’s Thrifty Threads was all about adding a touch of glam to everyday life {remember the $8 vintage dress}? Well, this week I took a total 180 and went super casual.
Though I adore a pair of stilettos and a flirty frock, some days require leggings and the most comfortable pair of shoes in your closet. But of course keeping it easy and breezy doesn’t mean being devoid of any style. It’s all about adding a few elements to keep it haute and interesting.

Thrifty Threads 365: No New Clothes for a Year Fashion Challenge As mentioned earlier this week, emerald green is having a serious moment.
And as I also mentioned, I barely wear green. But I finally remembered this vintage dress I scored a few years ago and it was finally time to take it out of the depths of my closet.
If you think major cities are the only places you can score at thrift stores, I’m here to tell you that’s so not true. I found this Pat Richards dress a few years ago while visiting family in Ohio and it was just $8. The store was in a small town but had a ton of amazing finds {be sure to check out my previous post: Benefits of Thrift Shopping in a Small Town}.
This was my first time wearing the dress and I absolutely fell in love with it. I felt like I was floating on air.

Remember my last thrift store haul when I found these leather, rubber sole booties? I immediately scooped them up because I knew they’d be perfect, especially for winter. Flats are for easy walking and stilettos can be tricky, but a rubber sole bootie is stylish and easy to navigate slippery terrain.
I finally took the booties for a spin last week when the streets of NYC were slushy.
