I have finally completed my MoneySupermarket.com competition entry – it’s in for tomorrow so really left it until the last minute but I guessed better late than never, ey!? There were 5 categories of which an outfit had to be created for less than £200. So, after many hours searching into the corners of the high-street on the Internet I have created the following outfits:
The First Date
I am not the kind of girl that has been asked on 50 first dates so I am fairly unaware of how to ‘dress to impress’ date-wise. I am in love with this Urban Outfitters dress and feels it displays just the right amount of skin. As much as I love skyscraper heels on a date I would be too nervous in case I was to fall (quite likely) so these ASOS flatforms are the perfect combination of height and safety. And then there is the massively, oversized clutch bag – well, where else would I put my overfilling make-up bag?
Total = £145.49
I based this outfit round the River Island blazer. I saw it in the shops and fell in love with it. I think it has a 60’s feel to it so I paired it with a black dress, nude nails and flick of liquid eyeliner. The Urban Outfitters bag has a retro look to which adds to the (hopefully) 60’s feel. I love the flatform/wedge heel on the shoes – they certainly look ‘dancer friendly’ which is an added bonus!
Total = £195
The Casual Outfit
I have been in love with this Topshop Boutique dress ever since I laid my little eyes on it so I had to incorporate it into this competition some how. I wanted to pair this dress with some clumpy, black boots but after a thorough search of the virtual world this proved to be expensive with a little number of pairs being offered for less than 75 smakeroons. Eventually I found these comfy looking boots from ASOS which satisfy both my price and style expectations! River Island jewellery is always a bargain so I added these little earrings as an addition for £1.50.
Total = £198
The Office Outfit
The geeky look is my favourite look so this category is great for me 🙂 If you read my blog you’ll know that I wear a white shirt at any opportunity so naturally I chose to pretend purchase a white shirt. Tweed is another love of mine so this Topshop skirt is right up my high-street! I chose this knit cardigan to keep me toasty on my walk down to work during these autumn mornings.
Total – £ 196.98
The Outdoor Outfit
I have always wanted some Nike hi-tops so purchasing an Outdoor outfit is the perfect excuse to incorporate these trainers! I am a big fan of too much jewellery so I chose this pack of H&M rings which were a bargain! I kept the outfit simple, warm and convenient with an autumn country outing in mind and what is more convenient than a backpack!?
Total – £190.96
Anyway, if you’ve got to the end of this post thank you so much for reading! I really enjoyed doing this challenge, it’s fun having fake money to spend 🙂 I hope you’ve had a great weekend 🙂
