$20 Challenge Roundup

If you can't see Friday, this combo photo is formatted to be viewed in full in Google Reader.


I really enjoyed Kasmira's $20 Challenge. I managed to wear all new pieces every day, with the exception of wearing my black skirt twice. This was a fashion choice because I wanted to wear my plaid shoes on Thursday and my other low-cost skirts would not have matched. The toughest part was finding work appropriate shirts that fit into my budget. Some days I managed to squeeze in a purse, and on other days I barely managed to fit in any jewelry. I feel like I had an advantage because a few years ago a friend was cleaning out her jewelry box and I took a lot of her cast offs.

My most expensive item: black patent heels & brown/cream A-line skirt -$10

Least expensive (but not free) item: silver circle earrings $0.26

Thanks, Kasmira! I can't wait to see everyone's looks!!

You did extremely well. Thursday is still my favourite. Apart from the to die for shoes, I could probably steal your style :D I'll wait for spring and you might see it on my blog *LOL*

I am still in awe at all of your < $20 outfits!! I think all of my outfits costs less than $20 this past week with the exception of my shoes. I don't think I have any pairs of shoes that cost less than $20 - bummer! You had a fantastic week of outfits!

I can't believe you were able to do this 5 times.. that is so amazing to me. You do such a good job because your outfits are wonderful :)

I was not happy with mine, but I went with it.

I'm so impressed! I doubt I could do one day, much less an entire week - and you look great every day!
