BARGAINISTA FASHIONISTA CONTEST ENTRIES


Hi guys! I am excited to share my entries for the Bargainista Fashionista Contest on the awesome sewing site Patternreview.com. I wanted to enter items that were classy and super easy to replicate.
For full contest details and to view other fabulous contestant entries, click here.

My first entry is a pencil skirt inspired by St. John Collection (here). I felt the skirt from St. John Collection was a little plain, so I amped it up by choosing this fabulous faux leather fabric with eyelet detail. 

My second entry is an effortlessly elegant maxi dress, inspired by TIBI (here). I brought it to life with this vibrant teal fabric, perfect for spring and summer. I love the versatility of this dress! Pair it with a straw hat, sunnies and some cute flats for a casual summer outing or up the ante with statement jewelry, a fabulous clutch and killer sandals for a nightime affair. 



In line with the bargainista theme, I chose affordable accessories to complete the outfits.
