Thrifty Threads: What I Wore to Fashion Week

I had a general idea of what I would wear during Fashion Week. When I know I have a lot of running around to do and when the temps are in the teens, I usually stick with my trusty skinny jeans and a few statement pieces. So I went for a mixture of new threads {studded top and neon and animal print shoes} from Loehmann’s and some thrifted add-ons, like my Hudson jeans from the Housing Works Buy the Bag sale and vintage clip-on earrings.
But then the dilemma moved to what to wear over my outfit? A blah coat can totally ruin any look, but I knew exactly what I could rock for a standout style.
I needed something that would pull double duty at keeping my really warm without being too bulky. My natural choice was an Ellen Tracy cape I scored from Loehmann’s more than a year ago. I wore it last winter and it continues to serve my wardrobe and make the frigid NYC weather a bit more bearable.
For an extra layer of warmth, I layered an H&M faux fur stole I snagged from Goodwill in Chelsea for $6
After grabbing a Deux Lux oversized purse, my look was complete. The bag was large enough to store my essentials {i.e. iPhone, charger and flats} and I love the bold color with gold details.
When the weather gets a bit chilly, don’t assume your style has to take a major hit. The easy way to make sure this doesn’t happen is by having a statement coat and/or a few other bold pieces and you don’t have to spend a ton on them.
Disclosure: As a Loehmann’s blog ambassador for Fashion Week, I was provided with a gift card. All beliefs are 100 percent my own {but you already know that}!
