On a budget...



Bodysuit - Ebay
Skirt - Ebay
Clutch - Dorothy Perkins
Hey Ladies,
I thought I would try and create an outfit fit for say a night out or cocktails and dinner, whilst trying to keep the prices down as much as possible for those on a bit of a tight budget. I always believe that if you want to splash out and spoil yourself then go for it, but there is nothing wrong with grabbing a bargain!
I'm really loving the asymmetric trend on skirts and dresses at the minute, so I thought I'd give it a try myself. I found this amazing skirt on Ebay for only £5, and I've seen a lot of the bigger stores selling the exact same for a lot more! I have to admit though, I originally got the skirt in pink and boy was it see through! So sometimes paying a little more does pay off, however this colour is fine for modesty and I absolutely love it.
I paired the mocha skirt with a nude plunge bodysuit; as you'll know if you're a regular to my blog, I am loving neutral colours at the minute. It was also an Ebay steal and once put my amazing oversized steal of a clutch I picked up for just £3, the outfit has already barely come to £15! These gorgeous heels are a little more but I managed to grab mine with a big discount code (which unfortunately didn't last very long!) and an extra pound off for liking the store on Facebook. I always find that if you just wait a day or two or check around the shop's social media sites you will find discount codes.
I managed to do this whole outfit for under £30, which I don't think is too bad when the quality of the garments is absolutely fine and the shoes especially I will be able to use again and again. However, if you're on a really tight budget you could just wear a pair of heels you already have and the rest of the outfit only comes to £13!
Happy bargain hunting!
Love Sarah xo
