Beauty Riot's Budget Fashion Blogger Contest



I was so excited to be asked to take part in the first ever BeautyRiot Budget Fashion Blogger Contest!  Myself and 7 other fabulous ladies were asked to put together an outfit that cost us $100 or less.  We had to include a breakdown of the items, where we purchased them & how much we spent.  You know I love to share my amazing deals with people, so this was a fun challenge for me!  Here is the breakdown of my outfit:

Zara top - purchased on eBay for $25
Laundry by Shelli Segal pleated maxi skirt - purchased on clearance at Marshall's for $29
BCBGeneration leopard pumps - purchased on clearance + coupon at Macy's for $12.94
Necklace - purchased on clearance at Target for $14.99
Sonoma hammered bangles - purchased on sale at Kohl's for $7.99
Thick bangles - purchased on clearance at Target for $9.99





You can view all the contest entries here and cast your vote for who you think should win by leaving a comment under the story on their site like this - "VOTE: Kimberly Smith" (not that you have to vote for me, just an example J).

I always love your blog! I can't imagine anyone thinking an outfit is difficult to create on less than 100.00. I'm a frugal shopper and some of my greatest outfits have been less than 25.00!!!! Anyway, love the skirt and the color. You're beautiful as always!

I'm so jealous you found that skirt at Marshall's for $29! I've been looking for a plated maxi like that all spring but every one I find is too expensive! It is perfect!

Mary said...

So when I saw this picture pop up on my phone a few days ago I literally scoured the net looking for this top. It is flawless and you styled it amazingly! I am so jealous you have it but thanks to you my search continues for the perfect top! #inspiring!

Mary
