Only a few more weeks of winter. March 19th marks the official change from frigid air to warmer temperatures and longer days. This climate metamorphosis will require adaptable garments that can work hard no matter the weather. Choose affordable fashion pieces that can be layered now and then unveiled as things heat up.
Thrift Store Outfit Mix- $4 Chiffon Dress
This sassy back sleevless chiffon dress was a clever thrift store find and cost only $4! You can't beat the versatility of an LBD. This universal wardrobe staple can be worn for day or night and mated with a variety of accessories. For this rocker glam look I chose to accentuate the delicate chiffon fabric by contrasting the texture with denim and leather.
Denim jackets are a personal favorite and this affordable style by Just Fab was only $29. The faux leather sleeves amp up the look and add a touch of sophistication.

Affordable Accessories Add Punch
To reinforce the tough yet glam look of this thrift store outfit I added interesting accessories that mix feminine with fierce. This Jessica Simpson "Aisha" bag (below) features a metallic finish and funky fringe. Everyone should own a black statement necklace. Mine came from Burlington ($8) and mixes rhinestones with antiqued gold and black.
Budget Friendly Finishing Touches
Finalize this 'fit with some killer stiletto ankle boots and a red lip stain. My pre-owned suede booties were a Clothing Loft find at only $24. The Clothing Loft is one of my style destination for consignment and resale fashion in Lafayette. As spring progresses, ankle boots like these can be worn without tights and also with cuffed denim. I chose a red lip stain to add a punch of color and sex appeal to this otherwise monochromatic and modest outfit.
