Hope you all had a great loooong weekend - of shopping, right? I know I sure did! It was 102 degrees here this weekend, so I headed to my nearest Marshall's to get the shopping party started. Nothing cooler than a dressing room right? ;) I tried on tons of cute things, but walked away with this outfit. Marshall's (along with Lucky Magazine) asked me to participate in a special "fall fashion challenge" to create an entire outfit from $100 that they provided me. Since COLOR is still so very hot this fall, I went with a gorgeous blue blouse, adding another pop of color with my heels (colorblocking is just so fun!).
You can also find some pretty major handbags (I saw some in bright orange and pink!), but since I chose color for my blouse and heels, I remained neutral with my bag. So what’s the secret behind Marshall's on-trend and affordable items? It's in their buyers – they're the ultimate treasure hunters and are constantly traveling around the world to find deals on the hottest items so you’ll find amazing news pieces in stores each week! I know, I love it so much. Wanna know the deets of my outfit?
Cobalt blue blouse by "Mine" - $14.99
Black pencil skirt (with gold zipper details) by Calvin Klein - $34.99
Green suede heels by Steve Madden - $39.99
Black/gray clutch- $19.99
*I did spend $20 over, and used my own cami for under the shirt and jewelry. But, can you believe I got all of this for just over $100? (Not to mention, I spent some of my own money on an amazing cropped leather jacket for $30 and a pair of Teva tennis shoes for $9...YES. I'm still reeling over that. I am a size 6, so guess that's why.)
Now, here's the fun part! In prep for my trip to fashion week, I wanna give one lucky winner something special! All you have to do is comment on this post with what you would buy at Marshall's with a $100 gift card...and you might just win it!
P.S. Stay tuned alllllll week long for my Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week coverage, and while it might not be posted here just yet (the week can be super crazy!), I'll be tweeting @iheartheels a ton. See ya there! ;) xo
