Last week the fab Lucy challenged me to put together a whole outfit that cost around £5. Walking into town earlier I realised that today's outfit was a cheapie, too.
This dress was from "The 20p Man" at the Thursday car boot sale and the bag was 20p from another car boot sale several years ago.
These lace-up suede boots were £1 from a car boot sale and the turquoise opaques were a gift from a friend.
1960s Perspex clear rings and black bangles (Inherited from Mum), turquoise plastic bangle (Queen Helga), Black & Silver bangle (50p, car boot sale), Black cocktail ring (50p, Acorns Hospice), Plastic dress rings (25p each, car boot sale)
|Enamel earrings (40p, Bay Trading closing down sale)|
I splashed out a grand total of £2 on all these vintage goodies from this morning's town centre flea market,
1960s veiled cocktail hat, Miss Rayne pearlised court shoes, Ackery of London Kelly bag and a 1950s English-made leather Kelly bag and almost had change left from my imaginary £5 note.
I'm not alone in embracing cheap chic. Check out these gorgeous frugalistas:

Don't be shy, share your cheapest outfits, I'd love to see them.
