It’s Fashion Week here in New York and though this should be the time of high style, I’m seeing some sartorial choices that have left me scratching my head. Style is totally personal and we can all rock what we want, but I’m absolutely baffled by women who are foregoing warmth for style. The temperatures are below zero, but I’ve seen fashionistas in open toe sandals and light layers. Um, no!

Today is the last day of 2014, so that means it’s the final day of Thrifty Threads 365! For the entire year I’ve solely relied on clothes and accessories from the thrift shop, without spending a single dime on new clothing {excluding underwear, of course!}.

What better way to close the challenge out than with a statement making coat? I scored this vintage Christian Dior* double breasted coat from the massive Salvation Army coat sale and I’d say it was $23 well spent!
