A while back, I was contacted by the lovely Joua of Joua To The Rescue to take part in her Fall-Styling Budgetnista Collaboration. We bloggers involved were asked to put together a "less than $100" outfit. Here's my take on it, outfit details are below. Keep reading.
She'll be posting up other bloggers' outfits on her blog over the next few weeks. So be sure to check that out.
What is special about your less than $100 fall-styling fabulous outfit?
Most of the items here were really great bargains. Also, it's warm enough for slightly chilly days.
How do you shop on a budget?
I only buy items that I know I need. Items I know I will get a good wear out of. Then I look for the best available quality within my price range. Impulse buying and budget shopping don't go well together, so I plan my shopping beforehand and only go into shops with the exact amount of money I need. I'm also not a huge fan of online shopping. It makes overspending too possible.
Thrift stores, sale sections and ebay/depop are my favourite places to shop.
What would you splurge on?
The total cost of your outfit is.....
Sunglasses - ASOS / £6 / On Sale
