Shopping on a budget. It’s not as hard as you think! Last weekend I was invited by Fashion Week San Diego to be a part of the Style Soiree at Grossmont Center. Allison Andrews, the founder of Fashion Week San Diego, asked me and a couple other San Diego bloggers to put together Fall looks from participating stores in the mall with a budget of $75. I was lucky enough to get one of my favorite stores…Target!! I’m there all the time so this just worked out perfectly for me! Spending $75 on an outfit wasn’t the challenging part, trying not to wonder down every aisle and focus on the task at hand was my real challenge. I can’t help it, I love Target and I could literally spend all day there!
When it came time to put together a Fall look, I immediately gravitated towards this long knit sweater vest! From there I decided my outfit would have a 70’s boho chic vibe and found a great pair of wide leg jeans in a dark denim, a chambray top and this gorgeous silver and turquoise belt. (Online it says $19.99 but for whatever reason it was $6.00 in store!) My grand total at checkout $76.00…I may have gone over $1.00 but it was totally worth it. I wanted to find an outfit that fit my personal style, that I would wear again and can be worn with other items in my closet. I already have so many outfits in mind with the knit vest!!
At the Style Soiree my fellow blogger babes and myself shared our Fall looks and gave tips on the latest trends you can expect to see in the next month. The color marsala is huge with clothing and also beauty products (nails and lips!) Also flared jeans, layers, furs (faux of course), white on white and chunky necklaces, to name a few. After our panel came the runway show. The models killed it, as usual, while showcasing more Fall trends from Grossmont Center stores.
I had such a great time catching up with everyone who attended, talking fashion and sharing my hair product for the first time in public! I can’t wait for the runway shows at Fashion Week San Diego the first week of October. Have you gotten your tickets yet? They’re selling out fast!! Hope to see you there!
