Last month SoFeminine got in contact with me offering to gift me with fifty pounds to buy a bargain outfit with. I of course said yes, even though I must admit that having fifty pounds to spend  is what I personally would call a luxury, rather then being bargainous, so to be honest I found it quite a challenge to have so much money to spend in one go. As I shop mainly secondhand, and as boot sales and charity shops can be rather hit and miss, I found the easiest way to create an outfit was to spend most of my budget buying pieces I liked, rather then thinking of a specific outfit in mind. I then laid out all of the items I had bought and ended up creating this outfit, which came to a total cost of nineteen pounds and nineteen pence. As you can see, I couldn't seem to step away from buying pieces for a pound or two, and as my outfit total has only equaled to just under twenty pounds, I have another twenty something pounds worth of bargains to show you! I also spent the last of my budget on a lovely little lunch as a treat.
So what do think of my bargain outfit, have I done well for my budget? I so adore my shoes which I bought a few days ago. Perfect timing, really, as my beautiful vintage shoes are now falling apart! Love, Jazzabelle.

  5. This outfit is fantastic. It's really inspiring how you manage to look so wonderful for so little. I could definitely learn a thing or two! I am going to make sure I hit up a car boot when I come to London in a few months, you always seem to get such excellent bargains.
