Hi Guys! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 

For the past few weeks we have been giving you outfit inspiration for the holiday party season. This time of year can get a bit expensive, so we wanted to bring you a few purse-friendly options that won't break the bank balance whilst still making sure you look glamorous. Below we also havea  few tips to keep it budget friendly

Top Tips: 

1) Recycle
Wear a dress that you already own and buy some new accessories to give it a new look. Or vice versa, buy a new dress and use shoes and accessories you already own. Before you go shopping have a good look in your wardrobe and see if there is something in there you could use. 

2) Look in the sales section
When searching for a new dress, either online or instore, don't forget to have a look in the sales section to see if something catches your eye.

3) Charity/Thrift shops
Why not have a browse in you local charity/thrift store and see if you can find any gems. 

4) Hire a dress
There are many websites offering designer dresses for hire at the fraction of the price they cost. If your only going to wear it once why not save yourself the time and hassle, when you can have a gorgeous dress delivered to your doorstep with a few clicks. Check out Girl meets Dress

5) Swap clothes
Why not swap or borrow from your sisters or friends. This way your both wearing something new but your not spending any money. 

We hope you enjoyed this week's post. For any of you that don't like wearing dresses, next week we will be showing you some ideas with separates.
