I am so excited to be a part of the RetailMeNot spring fashion challenge! When I was presented with the opportunity I was thrilled because I love the idea of creating a head to toe look for under $100. I am proud of the fact that I am a very thrifty gal, I love getting the most bang for my buck and I don’t think you have to spend a fortune to look stylish.  Although I’m used to scouring clearance racks, couponing was completely new to me. RetailMeNot is the largest online coupon a site, so being armed with their mobile ap while shopping allowed me to score all the savings I needed to create a chic spring look for under $100 using a giftcard that they generously provided to all of the 9 contestants. 
Before heading out to shop I did some online research to see what the stores had on sale.  My first stop was Old Navy, because I knew I could score trendy items for a fraction of their retail price. I found the perfect neon blouse on clearance for $8.49 and a floral print cardigan for only $6.47. I then used the RetailMeNot code ONSAVENOW to get an additional 15% leaving me at a grand total of $12.72 for my first two items. After buying the top portion of my outfit, I knew I wanted to create a ladylike meets preppy look that would be perfect for shopping, a day at the office, or brunch with girlfriends. I was on the hunt for the perfect colored pants when I stumbled upon these Kelly green cuties at Express. I spotted them on clearance for $39.99 and I was a little concerned that I might have to leave them behind. I quickly consulted my RetailMeNot mobile ap only to realize that there was an additional 30% off clearance items, bringing my new total to $27.99.
 Finally, I decided to face the biggest challenge of all – shoes
and a bag. I head straight to Target knowing that I had seen some chic and
trendy pieces at great price points. I spotted this pair of silver pumps and
knew they were the perfect statement shoe, but the price? They were on sale for
a cool $14.98 and then out of the corner of my eye I saw the perfect kelly
green faux-croc clutch on sale for $9.98. I took a moment to breathe a long
sigh of relief before going into accessories mode. I wanted to save jewelry for
last because although I know it’s important in an outfit, I had to make sure
that I had room in the budget. With a little over $35 to spend I knew that I
could find the perfect statement piece. I quickly ducked into Macy’s where I
discovered a sparkly statement necklace. It was on clearance for $23.27 plus an
additional 25% off using my RetailMeNot mobile ap. This brought the new total
to $17.45. Lastly, before calling it quits, I scooped up a pack of stud earrings
at H&M for $5.95 plus an additional 20% off bringing the total to

  1. Thanks so much, Rachel! The coupons really helped me save a lot of money. I was surprised too. Thanks for stopping by!


  2. Love this entire look– especially loving the heels! Great look for a great price!! Congrats on being the RetailMeNot fashion challenge winner! I participated in the contest as well. It was a blast!

    Kati, your newest follower!

  3. I love all the outfits! You did a really good job selecting these items for great prices.

  4. The fastest way to rock this trend is by pairing matching solid colours together
    to emphasise the structure in the garment.
    Pair all of them with a pencil skirt for professionalism
    or if you desperately want to embrace spring, try these with some Bermuda
    shorts. Regardless if you opt to choose one this means something symbolic, accusation in court a different way to have this necklace convey more of a sentimental meaning.
