Dear Internets,


I have been running round trying to sort out birthday festivities and in my absence, it seems I have forgotten to post. My amnesia is over so expect a return to our regular ebb and flow. It is still the season of parties for us at the moment, and they are becoming harder to dress for. Never mind the fact that too many of my friends know each other and I can’t recycle outfits , I have the added obstacle. He’s 82m tall and likes pulling my top down and insisting I pick him up off the floor on a regular basis. Forget about the “heels or no heels?” decision. I’m on the hunt for outfits that wont result in accidental flashing and will allow me to bed without bursting a seam. Add the challenge of a scant budget and you have party outfit disaster.


We’ve been asked before if it’s possible to look good on a small budget: The kind a uni student can actually afford, not the kind they pretend to be able to afford while their parents secretly fund it all. The answer if simply yes if you have a decent baseline of accessories and staples, an eye for things in your relatives wardrobes worn differently, thrifting and outside the box thinking.


I felt like a million dollars in this outfit and to the great relief of hubs, it didn’t involve one single trip to the shops. I deserve some sort of remuneration for such a success….a shopping spree perhaps?


Pixel wears:
Hat | Lack of Color – The Mirage

  1. Love the black blouse with the printed maxi skirt, lovely combination! 🙂

    Fashion on a budget is always fun – you are open to a lot more combinations that way I find! 🙂 Always got to find the silver lining, haha!
