Bargainista Show and Tell Challenge.

I'm entering 'Bargainista Challenge'. It's a competition for bloggers to show off their cheapest yet fashionable outfits! (Thanks to Kat from Sequin Buttons, for her post and email).

Pink blouse - carboot, 50p
Denim skirt - carboot originally St Michael M&S, 50p
Brown coat - carboot, 37.5p (4 items for £1.50)
Black clogs - Primark, £6 reduced from £12

White sunglasses - free with magazine
Gold earrings - mother's wardrobe
Penny necklace - Marks&Spencers, 1p (M&S Penny Bazaar)
Outfit Total = £8.72!

Bargain Hunting Tips:
1. Raid through your mother's, father's, grandma's wardrobes, as you never know what you could find hiding in there!
2. Stop at every stall at the carboot and don't be shy to rummage.
3. If you like a specific item on the catwalk (i.e. aviator/flying jacket) look everywhere (high street, online, charity shops etc) to find the best copy.

This competition is open to ALL UK bloggers. The closing date for entries is today (Thursday 16th September 2010) at midnight. The winner will be determined as the entry that creates the best look on a budget and notified by the email tomorrow (Friday 17th September 2010).

I'm sorry for the short notice but I only found out about the competition yesterday. But if anyone still wants to enter, contact me by commenting on the post with your email and I will send you the pdf with all the details.

First Prize: (3 winners): Two Gold entry tickets to London Fashion Weekend, Two limited edition show bags, Two entrance tickets to the catwalk shows, Entrance to the shopping hall filled with designer discounts.

Second Prize: £50 Topshop voucher to spend in-store.

Third Prize: £25 Topshop voucher to spend in-store.

'till next time, xoxo
