A while back the gorgeous Doll's Factory set bloggers a challenge " RECESSIONISTA CHIC " - the idea is to prove that style doesn't have to cost alot of money!

Those of you who are regulars to my little blog will already know that all of my stuff is cheap chic! But i thought this little outfit was a particularly good example of "cheap chic" so I have dedicated this to Doll's Factory's quest to show the world that style CAN have a budget!

These are ALL sale bargains! Jacket £6, Top £2.99, Trousers £9.99, Shoes £10, Necklaces £2 each, headband and glasses £1 each!

Fashion on a budget is soo much more exciting for me! I find the challenge of finding great peices cheaply so satifying! I go NUTS for a sale section or a good vintage store! Cheap is totally my kind of chic!

Happy weekend sweeties
