Credit Crunch Challenge - Part II

My mother always tells me: عينج ما تطيح إلا عل الغالي

It’s true. When I go shopping I unconsciously tend to pick the most expensive item at the store only to be consciously awakened by the price tag.

Looking for stylish and affordable items (less than KD 100) turned out to be fun, a little bit challenging but fun. Normally I tend to be picky when it comes to buying from the high street, I always check the fitting, the stitching, and quality of garments before I make my purchase. So, here are today’s selections for the Credit Crunch Friendly Shopping Game..

I found these on-trend tapered leg shape pants KD 23 and this cute cropped beige linen ruffled jacket KD 30 at TopShop (Yes! TopShop AGAIN!). Pair them with one of KG’s patent leather platform sandals (preferably the orange ones, around KD 40) And wear a flashy colored tank top under the jacket, which you can easily find at Zara or Express for less than KD 10. And, taadaa, that’s an entire outfit for less than KD 100.

Cute ruffle detail on the collar of the jacket and one pleat on the back

Nice.. enzain shrayech of another challenge? Clothes for met7ajbat eli yasteroon el jesem but at the same time flatters and trendy? But if its trousers/jeans then the top has to be long like mid thigh length basically covering that area
