Can you buy an entire outfit for $250?
Can you buy an entire outfit theses days for $250?
That was the challenge set for me by Melbourne Central as part of their Chinese New Year celebrations: could I find an outfit inspired by China?
No vintage, no second hand, all shiny, bright and new. I’ve done challenges in the past, and I suppose it’s sort of what I’m known for here on Lady M: putting together outfits from old, new, designer, indie and low budget retailers.
But, it ain’t easy! I think I may have been into almost every shop along the way, making a mental list and then going back to what were my favs. I did find some great pieces in Sass & Bide and Scanlan & Theodore which I would say at $250 would go onto the ‘investment’ piece list.
However that wasn’t my challenge and a blog post about a single top or shoes is a little bit boring right?!
