Miss C loves clothes. They have to been pretty and they have to be sparkly. One day she said to Husband, "Daddy, where is the pretty things?!" as he tried to put a plain white t-shirt on her. My girl knows what she likes.
I was sent a gift card to the value of £30 and off we headed to our local TK Maxx. It's always been one of my favourite shops, especially for their fancy dress costumes and gorgeous party dresses. Unfortunately our store doesn't have the biggest of children's sections so bargain hunting is crucial. Here's what we had to choose from:
I had an idea of what I wanted to get. The best way to get a number of outfits on a budget is to choose a "base item" that when combined with something else, makes an outfit. I decided to go for jeans as jeans go with anything. I also knew I wanted to get some sort of dress as a dress can be an outfit on its own for party wear or teamed with jeans or leggings to make another outfit.
I searched through the clearance section first. I always go to clearance sections first when I go to a shop. Clearance doesn't always mean the rubbish that no one else wanted. You can find some gorgeous stuff, often with quite a bit off the original price. I managed to pick up 2 t-shirts and a pretty dress. I couldn't find any trousers in Miss C's size (the downside to clearance!) in the clearance rail but did find a pair of skinny jeans in the girls section. They only had an age 2 and lucky for us, Miss C is a bit short so still needs 18-24 month trousers.
I bought 2 t-shirts, a pair of skinny jeans and a dress.
When we got home, we had a bit of a fashion show so Miss C could show off her new outfits:
I had a total spend of £28.99. Four outfits for under £30...Challenge completed! Miss C was delighted with her new outfits too.
I received a £30 gift card to use at TK Maxx in order to complete this challenge. The opinions expressed are my own.
