RICH LITTLE POOR GIRL - Pay Pittance, Get Glam

DAY 54

So as you may well know by now, I like to think of myself as the bargain shopping queen.
Whenever a bargain is near, I like to sniff them out like a bloodhound and tonight's look is no exception.

This head to toe outfit is my best yet, best yet you might ask...
Best yet in the savings department.
This entire ensemble came to a grand total of $41.35 and is very worthy of my
'Rich Little Poor Girl' series about looking fabulously rich for less!

How did it all come to less than a $50 note? Here's the quick breakdown:

For a tiny $10,
I scored this amazing fully lined dress at a great little store in Australia called AWOL
(Australian Way Of Life)
They are very similar to stores in the USA like TJ Maxx and Ross Dress For Less.
They accumulate designer brands and sell them on average for more than 75% off.
They are the only store that I know of down under that sells department store goods
 for fraction of normal retail cost.  You lucky ladies in America should count yourselves lucky,
I miss my visits to your array of amazing fashion discount stores,
we just simply do not have as much supply & demand here in Oz.

As far as everything else,
I grabbed this amazing brushed gold tassle necklace for $5 and decided it would make a great belt instead.  For the full price of $1.50 I also found these great stud earrings at Forever 21
(yes you heard right, full price not on sale)
and lastly I just added a classic pair of faux suede pumps for under $25.

And there you have it, a complete look for mere pittance as they say.
I hope you enjoyed this one, I always try my best to bring you affordable outfits
that you can source or at the very least supply you with a little fashion inspiration.
