73 days to go: Recession Challenge Outift
I may be down but I am not out.
I may not be able to buy any new clothes for a year but I can still be a contender.
This is my answer to Kasmira's Recession Outfit Challenge.
Find a whole outfit for under $20.
This translates to just over £14.00.
I spent the whole drive to work (45 minutes) yesterday thinking about this and here's what I came up with - all for under £14.00.
The dress , which I have worn before came from eBay last year.
It was brand new with tags and came from Wallis. I got it for £2.19.
The sandals are a pair my daughter bought from Primark with her pocket money a few months ago and came to £4.91.
The cardigan was also from Primark and was reduced to £3.00.
The snake belt (worn as a necklace) was, yes another Primark find.
It wa sin the bargain bin and reduced to £1.00.
The scarf which I wore as a belt came free with In Style magazine a few years ago.
The bracelet was free with the Spanish In Style magazine which I bought in Barcelona last year.
The sunglasses were £1.99 in Tesco last year.
That makes £13.09 or $19.69
No wonder I'm jumping for joy - job done!
