That’s right! Every Wednesday a modest fashion blogger will put her money saving savvy skills to the ultimate test!!

I did this challenge a long time ago and decided to repeat it again just because it’s so much fun!!

I love shopping the clearance rack and using as many coupons as the cashier will let me scan lol! (PRO TIP: Make friends with your cashier you never know when they’ll scan their 40% OFF employee discount just for you!)

I was encouraged to do this challenge because I want to let girls know that:

A: You can shop at regular chain stores and still find modest clothing or make them work!

and

B: Dressing modestly does not have to break the bank!

So without further ado, here is one of my outfits for under $20!

Here are the rules if you’d wish to follow along!!

~Your Outfit has to be under or $20

~ Shoes are not included but can be if you’re a pro like that!

So of course when you hear affordable clothing you think of shopping at ROSS!

It’s just the natural thing to do!

I not only found one outfit but 3!!

I found this GORGEOUS floral skater dress at the Juniors section and INSTANTLY fell in love!! So on trend for summer and it looks very chic with the right accessories!

These dresses do run very small! I had to size up all the way up to a size Large!

I decided to pair up this floral dress with the rich tones of cognac! I LOVE cognac! It’s so shabby chic!

I scored this dress for just $9.99!! Major score!

Now this dress hit exactly at my knee which was great when I am standing up but for modesty reasons I added a lace skirt extender! Plus I love the touch of lace paired up with the floral print!

This dress is already so colorful and amazing! So a white necklace seemed appropriate!

I got this necklace at a Utah Fashion Expo Event for just $3!!

$20 Oufit Challenge!!

Happy Pioneer Day to all my Utah followers! (Happy Thursday for everyone else lol)20140724-131005.jpg

I know, I know, The title is already sounding pretty crazy right?! I was inspired to do this challenge from watching a Youtube video on the $20 makeup challenge and saw that people changed it to the $20 Outfit Challenge! So pretty much you have to use your deal hunting skills to create an entire outfit, including shoes for $20 or less!  I was confident that I could find clothes for under $10 a piece but finding shoes under $10?! Now that’s a whole different story! I guess I could have gone cheap and bought dollar tree flip flops and called it a day but I really wanted to create something that I’d actually would wear on a daily basis. Most girls who did this tag went to their Forever 21 but ended up going over the budget.( Is it just me or is Forever 21 getting more expensive?) With that being said, I had initially thought to go to Rue 21. Now this was not only a $20 outfit challenge for me , it was also a 30 minute power shopping challenge since I had to get to work as well! To my surprise Rue 21 was having 50% OFF clearance items! (SCORE!) Right as I walked in I saw a ton of cute tops for just $3 a piece!

Yeah $3 tops!

Yeah $3 tops!

I quickly grabbed the hot pink one and hurried to the skirts section. I found this adorable hot pink lip print midi skirt!!

So cute right?

So cute right?

Best part about it? It was only $9.99! I was in awe when I found $7  heels and flats! This was to good to be true! All their shoes and heels were just $7!!

$7 shoes? Um yes please

$7 shoes? Um yes please

I bought these chic ankle strap black heels and couldn’t resist to pick up a couple of more pairs of flats!20140724-135121.jpg Later that night after work as I was trying on my outfit I really loved the way the skirt and top looked together but the shoes just didn’t seem to work with the midi skirt. So my shoe hunt begins again,but this time I really scored big time! I was at a local clearance warehouse looking at the shoes and these bad boys immediately caught my eye.20140724-135137.jpg Valentino was the first thing that popped in my head! They looked like the Valentino Rockstud pointed flats! In my head I was already at the checkout line purchasing them, being mentally prepared to shell out at least $20 bucks for them. To my surprise (again!) they were only $9.99!! So naturally I went ahead and picked up the nude ones as well! Surprise #3 came when the cashier was ringing me up and the screen said they were reduced to  $7 each! Yay!! $14 and some change I paid for both pairs!

So here’s the breakdown

Hot Pink Top : Rue 21—–> $3

Lip Print Midi Skirt : Rue 21—–> $9.99

Pearl Necklace : Thrifted—> .50cents

Black Studded Flats: Clearance Warehouse—-> $7.00

GRAND TOTAL : $20.49! Not exactly $20.00 but hey I was pretty close! lol20140724-131338.jpg
