marshalls $100 fall challenge








Ever since I discovered what shopping was (as a young 5 year old), I became a bargain hunter, and spent many of my shopping days between the racks at my neighborhood Marshalls. Not much has changed -- 18 years later I still stop in that same store for the latest looks, and have become somewhat of a self-proclaimed Marshalls expert.

I was so excited to participate in creating a great fall outfit for $100 or less. I definitely struck gold (obsessed over these shoes + this top was an awesome clearance score!) and found some great pieces that will keep me looking stylish all season long -- from print on print snakeskin to oxblood fingertips, lady-like heels and edgy touches. Marshalls always has a way of surprising me with the great pieces I find. 

The hardest part? Figuring out which outfit to buy! Here's what I got:

TOP: Olive & Oak $5........(compare at $34)
SCARF: Accessory St $20........(compare at $60)
PANTS: Rich & Skinny $39........(compare at $172)
SHOES: B. Makowsky $29........(compare at $129)
NAILS: Jessica $5 for a set........(compare at $17)

TOTAL: $98........(compare at $412)

  18. I adore your mixed print ensemble and the fact that you spent less than $100 dollars on it! So great! I think the scarf is my favorite piece! They just opened a marshals here in my small town and I am so excited! I think you just inspired me to stop by!
