Mission: R100 outfit

Saturday the 25th of February our mission: Search and find an entire outfit for under R100.

The location: City Bowl Market in Hope Street.The fashion market happens once a month with 30 different designer ,you are sure to find something you’ll love.

I am no fashion expert and do not consider myself trendy so dressed in flats and comfy clothing, my partner in bargain hunting Melissa and I hit the market with our limited budget,enthusiasm and Mel’s killer eye.

The first sighting of my own personal nirvana, adam & eve had a seasonal sale-A range of items that would have your heart doing flips.

While browsing through the rails I found a gorgeous navy blue high waisted skirt and fell inlove with it immediately. Being a curvy and short I have learnt what works for my shape and without trying it on I knew it would be perfect and with the price tag to match :) I am sure you would agree…

R40,Yes your eyes do NOT fool you. 40 bucks for a brand new Adam and Eve designer item!

Now the only issue I had with the market was that there is soooo much to choose from! I decided the aim of the outfit would have to be multifunctional so it could be adapted to Cape Towns unpretendable weather(PMS MUCH!) and was delighted when I found a mint vintage knitted pull over. It was second hand so for all you “germaphobs” I suggest a quick wash.

After and awesome day of shopping, it was my turn to play dress up:) I paired the mint knit with the skirt. It’s perfect for summer as it is airy and not bulky, pair the outfit up with stockings, a killer blazer and your favourite boots to convert it to a trendy autumn outfit 

TADA!!! #DrumRoll please and the total outfit cost just R90! And the shopping experience priceless!! For all your first time market shopper, I’d definitely recommend the City Bowl Market.

Thanks for reading <3

And remember beauty can’t be bought :) it comes from within your soul
