#30FlirtyFashion – The Bargain Hunt Project

Christmas is done and dusted. Spent all your money? Well I spent it all on the kids and everyone else. But not on me. Well I do admit that I have my little Christmas shopping party pretty much all year around so I can’t really complain. But by doing this I need to find some bargains. Otherwise the Swiss would not be happy!

I wanted something new for New Years Eve but didn’t want to spend much, plus I wanted something I can wear again. And again. Something versatile. So Robyna from The Mummy and the Minx and Bron from Flat Bum Mum, I have set ourselves the challenge of creating an outfit within a $30 budget. If you feel like playing along, tag #30FlirtyFashion on Instagram . I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

 

#30FlirtyFashion Style Challenge

 

With my $30 challenge money in my pocket I hit the shops a couple of days ago. Yeaph! So brave! Plus I had my two kids in tow. I visit Kmart frequently (as you’ve probably noticed) so this was my first stop. I did not buy an entire new outfit cause I am a big fan of ‘rediscover your wardrobe’ and using the ‘versatile items’ in my closet (as mentioned before). I found some awesome snake print heels which were down to $7. I discovered a cool necklace (yeaph because I totally don’t have enough of them .. ups .. read more about it here) and a great kaftan, on sale for $7. The kaftan doesn’t really go with the heels but I figured it is kinda nice to have two outfits and if it’s within the budget. Even better. I found the black dress at H&M also on Sale for $10. So here are both of my outfits.

 

Number 1 – The dressy one:

Necklace ($5) and heels ($7) from Kmart
Black dress ($10) from H&M
Clutch, Ring and Cape are old (so this doesn’t count as ‘new shopping’)

Total spent for this new outfit: $22

So BOTH of those outfits together cost me $29 in total. Pretty cool isn’t it?!
