A few weeks ago I went thrift shopping with my mom {yes, mommy is a thrifter, too!} and we were on the hunt for some affordable finds at the Salvation Army, since most clothes are half off on Wednesday. I came across quite a few coats and it made me realize, there’s an art to thrifting outerwear. There’s an art to thrift shopping in general {I wrote the book on it!}, but in particular, thrift shopping for a coat has its own pitfalls.
If it’s getting colder in your area and you want to save on outerwear, here are 5 tips that will help you find a warm winter coat at a thrift shop. Also, the NYC Salvation Army is having their final coat sale this weekend. More details below

Dime Find of the Week: TB Dress’ Affordable Coats

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.
