Come Fab Finding With Me: Dressing Up On a Budget

As much as we would all love to have a never-ending orchard of money trees in our backyards, let's face it - sometimes we just have to do things on a budget. I have a little proposition for you: you're going to an event for which you have to dress up, but you only have $150 to spend on the outfit.

I'll start your ensemble off with these Xhilaration Multi Shell Chandelier Earrings, $8.99; they are way cute, inexpensive, and they're white, so they go with almost anything!

Let's all go Fab Finding for a $150 (or less) dress-up outfit. Come back and tell me when your Fab Finds are up and tag them with budget dressup.

Oh! Now, you can build outfits by creating a list of clothing items. We have everything you need to build outfits with and you can use your Fab Find bookmarks too. This is an even better way to put together an entire outfit when you are completing your Fab Finding missions.

To learn what a Fab Find is and how to make one, click here. For a more detailed explanation of bookmarks from geeksugar click here.

Ahh... I missed where we needed to incorporate those shell earrings into the outfit! :( In any case, here is my contribution (technically one outfit but two different options for accessories):

Everyone needs a little black dress! Plus, if you are on a budget you'll need something that you can wear time and time again..
