Fab Find Friday: Cute N Cheap

So I wanted to put myself to the test and create a totally cheap outfit (well at least try). I wanted each item to be $50 or less. Just want everyone to know you can be yourself and sexy even on a budget. No matter how much money you have to spend you can make it work if you put in the work. I think I did a nice job and created a cute after work outing attire. Hope you like.

I started my challenge with a skirt. I found a Grey Spot Waterfall Skirt from Miss Selfridge for $49. It’s cute and sexy and have a nice detail of frill down the front of the skirt.

To give this skirt a little sexy touch, I wanted to add a Lace cup Corset with eyelet fastening on back. This corset provides a sexy silhouette and looks great under a jacket. This corset can be found at Topshop for $46.

I wanted to add a nice blazer to put on top of the corset. something cute yet a different color. I went with a Blue Ruffled blazer to give that extra sexy layer. This blazer has tiered ruffle, notched lapel, double faceted buttons for only $33 at Charlotte Russe.

Shoes were a tough area to find something nice and reasonable under $50. I did come across a nice Grey studded Bow Back Ankle Boot, from a company in the UK called Desire Clothing. These boots were $41

I had to add a cute little add-on of some Metallic Butterfly Studs. These are so cute and will definitely add a little personal touch.

The total for this outfit came to $173, which is not too bad for a Blazer, Skirt, Corset, Boots, and Studs.

As always Ladies make sure to add a little personal touch/signature into your outfits.
