summer style savers challenge

Saturday, 8 June 2013

you lot know how thrifty i am when it comes to hunting out a bargain. you know and appreciate my love for the sale rails when it comes to getting the best value for money, and i'm the first to admit that yes. i am a cheap shopper. i will walk to the next shop to get something a pound cheaper. i use vouchers. i love a discount day. i rarely buy things full price. but, it's through being frugal that i do manage to have such a overflowing and always fresh wardrobe. my tastes change too frequently to feel good about splashing out on expensive or high-end high-street brands, so i do have my go-to stores when i know i'll get a bargain.

so when myvouchercodes.co.uk set me the challenge of creating a summer outfit for less than £100, i thought i'd go one better, and see just how many outfits i could create for that. turns out, two really awesome ones, accessories and all! what do you think?..


total wardrobe cost = £96.oo!
 
naturally, my first port of call was new look. i am a fiend for their online sales, a regular amongst the rails, and a keen click-and-collect customer. it seemed only fair that they been (massively) involved in my bargain hunting. and rightly so! i mean, the majority of my wardrobe is new look, so to keep true to form, where else would i look? check out the bloody bargains in found in their upto 60% off sale though! polka dot top £6!? i'll take ten. well, i won't, but you get what i mean.
 
a few of the other pieces have been featured around here before - those asos sunnies are a must-have and i think i'm going to just have to bite the bullet and buy them before it's too late! the ji ji kiki bag and hair grips are a perfect addition to, oh - just about everything i own, and i am dying for that real life daisy-chain from chelsea doll. plus - at £2.99, who doesn't need a new nail varnish to top off either of those outfits!
 
p.s. those heels at 50% off are a steal. they are perf, and i need them (despite never having anywhere to wear them).
 
what do you think? are you going to join in with the fun? enter here!

  3. You just have the best taste ever, don't you? I'm SO excited about my first shift at work tomorrow, because FINALLY I will be able to go shopping again, and hit up primark on ASOS (which I haven't even looked at yet, in fear of putting my bank balance in deficit!) xx

  4. Ooh I really like that sunflower necklace and those heels, but I wouldn't have anywhere to wear them either. Good choice of outfits!
