Enough preamble and onto the topic of the week: a coordinate that costs only $100. My maths may be a bit shoddy (due to currency conversions) but I did three, so that makes up for it...right? Also, as a note these do not include the necessary petticoat nor do they factor in shipping.
OP: $50 Shoes: $30 OTKS: $18 Beret: $1 Bow: $1
First of all I headed to the Bodyline site to see what they had, and this OP caught my eye. Given that it's so striking on it's own you can go very simple in the accompanying pieces which kept this under budget and allowed me to pick up some nice brand OTKS from Closet Child to go with it. Seriously, the reason I love berets and bows so much is that they are ridiculously cheap and versatile!
JSK: $42 Blouse: $17 Shoes: $27 Tights: $5 Flower crown: $7 Bracelet: $1
For the next coordinate I pulled together a look that took advantage of the range of items available from Taoabo re-sellers to do something that I think is rally quite cute and elegant. If I wore white I would definitely wear this.
Skirt: $40 Cutsew: $18 Boots: $30 Tights: $3 Flower crown: $4 Bows: $2 Bracelets:$3
For the last look, I took to Wunderwelt to see if I could find a cheap printed brand main piece, just to see if it could be done and I stumbled on Angelic Pretty's Rose Toilette! I actually love this print (on other people, that is) so it was fun to put together a look for it in my ultimate favourite colour scheme.
It was really fun doing this sort of thing again and trying to work on a budget. It's challenging, but you can do it, and I really enjoyed coming up with looks that I was happy with that stayed under budget.
