Enjoy Weekends: Oh my limited budget

To wrap up this week's posts of budget friendly fashion options, I wanted to do a couple sets that show cased outfits for 50 dollars or less. The first set's entire outfit costs $47.97. The second, I'm actually 7 cents over budget depending on where you get the bag. I wanted a different handbag for the second set but I couldn't find one that would keep me closer to the budget, so I'm not in love with the choice but it works for the outfit. I had to play around with skirt choices too for the first set, but I think it turned out well. It's cute and affordable.
This weekend, I'm doing some intense studying and then going to a Wolford fashion show. I'm not sure if they'll allow the audience to take photos, but if they do, I will share them.
I hope this week gave you some ideas about what's out there for less than 50 dollars and that you have terrific weekend.

15 shoes under 50 dollars

For the entire week, I'm focusing on accessories that are under 50 dollars. I'm calling it the 15 under 50.  With the holiday shopping season being here, people are looking for great gift ideas that won't break the bank. So whether you're shopping for that fashion lover in your life, or yourself, it's nice to know what you're money can get you. Thus I've collected some items that can be found for under 50 dollars. This is the original asking price. 50 dollars on sale doesn't mean much if the price can be hiked up at any given time or if it's practically sold out. So while looking for the great items, I had to keep in mind that the item had to be originally less than 50 dollars and it couldn't be cheap looking.
To begin this bargain bash we're starting with shoes! Here are 15 shoes, boots, and heels all under 50 dollars.
