The Polar Vortex has come and gone, leaving us pretty frozen here in Minneapolis. But the sense of survival and gratitude to the governor for closing the schools on Monday, thus granting me a 4 day weekend is enormous. I am starting to forget what it’s like to work!
I was brave enough to overcome the cold, and with my tripod in hand, ventured a maximum of 10 feet away from the front door to take some photos for today’s post. And even though my leather pieces aren’t as obvious (boots, belt and purse), the whole outfit is thrifted or free, with exception of the Ralph Lauren purse, and Lucky Brand sun glasses.
The grey chiffon JCrew dress was thrifted in New York during my last trip; my velvet jacket is Express; the belt was stolen from Sam; my headband belongs to my girlfriend Tawnya; the necklace is vintage; boots are Corso Como -thrifted; fur coat – vintage, gifted.
I hope you check out other girls looks, and see how they style and wear leather pieces! A Thrift Style Thursday Calendar will also be available soon on Twitter, feel free to join in the movement! We’d love to have you!

I am also joining in a project call Thrifty Threads 365 challenge with Patrice of Looking Fly on a Dime, and am committing to buying only thrifted clothing this year!
