I'm not going to get to down on myself though, I'm really so hard up because I've been spending money on things for my new flat instead of at Zara...despite the strong, strong temptations of their latest collection.
And while a new flat gives me less to spend on clothes, my outfits don't need to be an all out loss...I just need to be a bit more crafty with the cash. Which is why I happily agreed to take part in VoucherCodes.co.uk's Fall Fashion Finder Challenge and put together an Autumn outfit on Pinterest for just £50.
It turns out I was a little over confident at first, thinking that after my student years a £50 outfit was a breeze - but not so much. I had to hunt, and changed my mind on my options several times before I got the outfit I wanted. On my board I went for leather, studs and winter florals to get three Autumn trends in one...without straying to far from my own style which loves structure and unusual shapes, thrown in with the shoes from Matalan and cool jewellery from New Look (which was on offer - buy one get one free).
Want a chance to win a £50 outfit? Create your own board here! A Pinterest competition is open to all here - so get entering! And don't forget to post me a link to your boards...as a girl who can't wait to shout Primark when someone admires something, I love a bargain outfit tip.
