Last week I headed to Dixie Outlet Mall to hunt for my outfit for the She Who Hunts Finds blogger challenge. I had a great time shopping for a fall outfit because all of the stores at the mall were starting to bring out some great items for the change in seasons, and I was excited to hunt for some great deals.
By the way, if you are in the mall between August 21st and September 6th, visit the Discover your Wild Side in-mall activation between Laura and Urban Planet to take a photo as your animal!
With a $200 gift card in tow, I shopped for hours picking up things for my blogger challenge outfit, and then obviously I found all kinds of other clothes I just had to have at the mall as well.
Along the way I took note of what kind of deals I was getting at the mall, and I needed to make sure I stayed within my $200 budget.
Last week I took the Wild Side quiz at www.DixieWildSide.com which revealed my shopping persona – The Lioness. I also created a mood board which you will see I ended up staying true to.
My first purchase which I centred my whole outfit around were a great pair of booties from Sirens. At only $39.99 they were a great find, plus I signed up for their text alerts to receive another $5 off!
From there I headed to Guess where I picked up a great pair of grey skinny jeans regularly priced $98 for only $35 dollars! It was a great deal, and I love the jeans.
I bought a classic white t-shirt from Bluenotes for only $9.99, but I really needed a few more items to take this outfit into fall.
I love the Winners at Dixie Outlet Mall. There are so many great finds! I found this amazing cozy sweater that fit just right, regularly priced at $99.99 for only $49.00.
The clutch bag was an absolute must. I thought to myself, will this be too much fringe with the booties? And then I thought I couldn’t pass up a faux snakeskin/fringe combo and I headed straight to the check out! The clutch regularly retailed for $75, and I picked it up for $39.99.
To finish off the outfit I went to Claire’s and picked up a long necklace with turquoise accents to compliment the outfit for only $14.25.
Voila – my fall outfit for the She Who Hunts Finds blogger challenge at Dixie Outlet Mall was complete! I really love this outfit. It reflects exactly what my fall style will be – cozy sweaters, great boots, skinny jeans, and lots of fringe!
Actually if I was going to name this outfit, I would totally call it Fifty Shades of Fringe! Ok, is it bad I just named my outfit? Anyway, overall I saved $153.00 by buying this outfit at Dixie Outlet Mall. How amazing is that?
