Just a short while ago I wrote about the grand opening of the Asheville Outlets and what a literal breath of fresh air an outdoor mall was going to be. Fast forward a few months and here I am wearing an entire outfit purchased from Asheville Outlets for under $100 (including tax)!
I was contacted to participate in the Looks for Less Blogger Fashion Challenge and I jumped at the opportunity. If anyone can pull together a bargain deal of an outfit, I knew I could. I have lived most of my life near a sales rack! As soon as they handed me $100, away I went... challenge accepted!
This outfit is perfect for a fun night out! Whether it's drinks and dancing with the girls, dinner and a movie with a date, or just a chocolate overload at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge with your favorite person in the world, this outfit will be perfect.
What I really wanted to achieve in this challenge was to try to shop from as many stores as I could to show you guys that the good deals are literally everywhere at Asheville Outlets! I chose an outfit that was really me, because when I feel like I'm the best version of me, then my confidence soars. Now for the good part! Let me give you the run down of this outfit:
Gray Cardigan: Forever 21, $15
Sparkly Tank Top: Express, Original price $34.95, Sale price $21
Boyfriend Jeans: Gap, Original price $64.99, Sale price $33
Gray Wedge Sandals: Maurice's, Original price $39, Sale Price $20
Earrings: Forever 21 $4
After all was said and done (and after taxes), I spent right around $99. Without the great sale prices I would've paid roughly $160. That's $61 I saved!
I love the comfy material of the tank (Express) and the cardigan (Forever 21). The jeans (Gap) are trendy and cool but still classic enough to wear for years to come.
I'm in love with these sparkly wedge sandals (Maurice's)! Since I'm a shorty at 5'4", I'm always looking for a comfortable heel. A good heel gives me a bit of a confidence boost because it elongates my frame. However, wearing a wedge generally gives me more stability on my feet than a classic heel does. I can always wear a wedge for longer periods.
I'm a sucker for an unique earring (Forever 21), and these are super cute.
So there you have it!
An entire outfit for under $100!
