Thrifty Fashion Challenge

Thrifty Fashion Challenge OutfitI was set the challenge of putting together an outfit using codes available on that altogether cost no more than £50. I can say now I thought it would be really hard but the worst part was deciding what to keep in the end as I had so many options!

Putting together an outfit for under £50

My first stop was to check in with their Fashion and Footwear category a one stop wonder when it comes to knowing your fashion discounts. At the moment they have a medley of stores up from AX Paris and Box Clothing to Littlewoods and Debenhams, after a lot of looking around I decided to go with the four items in the picture above which came from two different sites, both offering a slightly different type of offer.

First up the handbag from Clarks who are offering 20% off all handbags.
I decided to go for the Mill Rock bag in Cotton (you can also get it in Raspberry, Orange and Mint all of which are gorgeous) at full price it is a reasonable £19.99 but with my lovely 20% off code I could grab it for just £16, and it also received free shipping

Next up the other 3 items which come courtesy of La Redoute.
At the moment if you’re a new customer (which I would be) you can grab £15 off a spend of £30 or more and grab free shipping with another great voucher code! 2 for 1 get in! I was a bit sneaky here I have to admit – I did look but I couldn’t find anything that said the £15 off didn’t work if you were buying things from the sale, so while the jumper isn’t from the sale the shoes and jeans are. The jumper which I love (so cute) comes in at a cool £25 the leopard print shoes are £6.90 down from £23 and the jeans £8.70 down from £29 which makes my La Redoute order using sale prices: £40.60 before I add my discount code and £25.60 after.

Meaning the grand total of my outfit comes to: £41.60

And the last little bit well.. I’d save that for a drink on my day out in this outfit.

What do you think of my £50 outfit, would you go for something like this or something completely different?

    Oh how cute is that owl jumper! As a bag lady I also love the handbag. Brilliant that this costs just over £40, most shops the top is even more than this whole outfit!
