Budget Fashionista


My fashionistas, I had been to a river Thames boat party  two weeks ago.

I have thought of a Look for the evening which will not cost me much and also which I can accessorize with bits and pieces from my existing wardrobe.

This silk heart print dress or frock (which I call ”POLKA HEART”) looks so cute that I thought to go with a high school hair-do by making a side-saddle with a front braid. I recently had a hair cut, so the length of my hair got a bit shorter (which I do not like), hence I have used a braided hairband. If you have longer hair, you can make it with your own hair.

So going back to the dress, it had a attached fire red belt, so I had to dig out the red rose wooden jewelleries I have and wore only the ring (it comes with a neckpiece) to keep the look minimal. I wanted to carry a clutch with strap to hang it on my shoulder to keep the ”girly-going-out”. Since the dress has collars, so I skipped wearing anything in the neck, instead I wore a pearl ear ring which is very French and English.
It’s still cold in London, hence I can’t go out bare legs, moreover it was a boatparty, you remember! It’s naturally colder than the city, so I wore this polka dot tights with my sky high color block platform heels. And last but not the least, nothing can go wrong with a pair of red lips, I told ya!!!

And all these you can grab at a price of a meal in any of the posh restaurants in London.
