I'm so excited to tell you that my favorite designer bargain store Marshalls has sent me a $100 gift card to participate in a contest called Project Fab to find the most fab items I can and share my findings with you. Being an avid Marshalls shopper as you may have noticed on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook, I'm not afraid to scour the racks to find the best deal. And you know how much I love a bargain, so this was quite the fun task for me.
I made myself a goal, I wanted to find a chic head to toe outfit with name brand pieces while staying within my $100 gift card budget. It wasn't necessary to do, but I love giving myself a challenge to prove my bargain hunting skills. ;)
I already had my mind set on a pair of shoes and a clutch that I HAD to have, so going in to the store I was prepared to center my outfit focus on these two pieces and bring it together with a chic edgy ecombo.
Let's see how far $100 can go at Marshalls, shall we?
Start Cost at $100.
1. Must-have gold cut-out flats by Kenneth Cole Reaction $25 on clearance! Such a steal compared to the going rate online right now for $69.95!
2. TasHa (Nordstrom brand) studded clutch with knuckle bling! For $29.99 this is a statement piece-not to be messed around with!
$100-$25-$29.99= $45.01 to spare
3. Black & White Stripe Top w/Vegan Leather side detail by Cynthia Rowley. This is going to give me the Parisian chic touch I'm aiming for.
$100-$25-$29.99-$14.99= $30.02 can I do it?
4. Free People black moto stretch pant, on trend and perfect for fall! A great basic piece that is versatile yet with an edge.
This whole OOTD cost me
...a grand total of....
$104.97 (not including tax)!!
Just putting me over the $100 mark by $4.97. Not bad at all.
Here's how I ended up styling it.
My final touch was the bow on top and a red lip.
Feeling very Audrey Hepburn.
It feels pretty darn fabulous to find a whole ensemble at Marshalls for ~ $100.
It can be done ladies & gents!
And with this complete OOTD I felt like I can take on the baking world by storm. Oui!
