£100 ASOS Blogger Challenge

Hello all!

I am officially a graduate and have been for about 3 days now. Thus, I am older, wiser and generally a better person than I was 72 hours ago... and now begins the mega job search! I'm anticipating that it's going to take a while for me to get a job because I'm going down the 'intern' route. I'm not looking forward to working unpaid for months and potentially years but hey, that's life... and I do have my little, casual theatre job to tide me over, I'll also be working as a programme seller at the Olympics so hopefully I won't be too strapped for cash! Nonetheless, I'm doing my best not to buy anything at the moment as I've become far too used to blowing my student loan in Zara and Topshop. Gone are those days. Boohoo.

Instead of buying things I'm going to try and win them instead! So here's my entry into Discount Coder's £100 Blogger Challenge. It's pretty self explanatory really; create your dream outfit from ASOS on a budget of £100. Here's my entry:

Floral Dress - £40Bag - £35Nail Polish - £5
Sunglasses - SALE £3.50 (Were £12)
Flatforms - SALE £15 (Were £50)
I'm absolutely lurrrrrrrrve this outfit and I can't believe that it was all for under £100! Those shoes are a steal.
I'm on a bit of a 'Mad Men' high at the moment, and I'm oh so in love with Betty Draper. This outfit is inspired by her incredible style:

When  I grow up I want to be Betty Draper.

Any one else entering the ASOS Blogger Challenge?
Leave me your link if you do, I'd love to see what you come up with!

Lots of love,

  3. I know how you feel about graduating, mine's next week and I'm dreading having to join the big wide world :(

    I love your entry though, it's so lovely and summery (even if the weather isn't right now!) and I love how you've coordinated all the accessories with the dress, it looks really well put together.
