Like most fashion/beauty bloggers, I spend my mornings trawling through Twitter looking for something that catches my eye – be that the latest RT and follow competition, more recently gorgeous Instagram snaps from LFW or big competitions: like this amazing Moneysupermarket.com addition! To enter the competition, you must write a blog post containing 5 hypothetical outfits under £200 for 5 scenarios (party, casual, outdoor, first date and officewear), outlining why you would buy them and also incorporating a bit of Moneysupermarket by looking for ways to get things “on the cheap”. Everyone loves a good deal, right? Now, let me tell you the prizes: 5 winners will win one of their chosen outfits and one lucky blogger will win £1000 to buy all of their chosen outfits – and an iPad 3, just in case you weren’t content with that… Wowzers. So here’s my entry:
