A few weeks ago, I got an email from Helen at Vouchercodes.co.uk inviting me to take part in their purse-friendly challenge for London Fashion Week.
The aim is to prove that style doesn’t have to leave you sobbing at the cash point, and the task was to create an oh-so fabulous outfit yet inexpensive outfit.
What I’m wearing:
Dress: £5, Primark
Tee: £3, Primark
Tights: £2, H&M
Blazer: £5, charity shop
Leather brogues: £7, eBay
Necklace: £1, car boot sale
Rings: 50p and £1, car boot sale
Outfit total = £24.50
This is definitely the cheapest outfit in my wardrobe. And it’s not too shabby, right? I needed to be a little smarter than usual today as I had a client meeting, so this dress and blazer combo was perfect. Since starting my Fashion Diet, I’ve been much more aware of how much things cost, and I’m always on the hunt for ways to save my pennies. Remember my Steve Madden boots? I used a code from Vouchercodes.co.uk to get free delivery from ASOS, knocking £5 off my order. And what about my bird print dress? I got 20% off the price with another code. It’s always worth a quick search before you shop.
What’s the cheapest item in your wardrobe? Are you a bonafide bargain hunter or flash with your cash? I’d love to know!
