Shockingly Inexpensive Outfit

As I was walking out the door today, I realized that everything I was wearing was really inexpensive. So I started doing the math in my head. If I didn't count my shoes, my entire outfit cost less than $10. It just goes to show that you don't have spend a lot of money to look good. Need more proof? Check out this challenge that Kasmira of What I Wore Today did last year. Lots of people submitted outfits (including shoes!) that cost less than $20. I even did a full week of $20 outfits.

Rand's Daily Outfit Assessment: "That shirt looks like an ocean wave on a cloudy wave." And then over dinner: "I think you missed on the accessories. Your necklace looks handcrafted but then the ring is too modern - a geodesic dome. They don't match. It's all wrong." uh...my gold and plastic necklace looks hand crafted? And it doesn't match? You're crazy. We actually had a debate about this over dinner. LOL


What I Wore That Only Cost $10:

Holy Moley! You rock! When you said $10 restriction, I had no idea you would even attempt to pull together an entire outfit for that! I was thinking maybe a small piece of jewelry or one shirt or something. Amazing!
