Fashion on a Budget – Jan 2010

FoaB is back !!!!!!!

I have the usual freebies/cheapies from around the grid, and a few goodies left over from the Down The Chimney hunt.

I have two outfits for you today – 2 different looks as well.

First off is a sexy little number from [Cynful]. I was originally tipped off to the dollarbie that was available in December by my friend Cali, and so a couple of weeks or so ago, I went back to check for any more dollarbies, and there was a new one.


The Corset Dress is a multiple option outfit. I chose to wear the black lace option (there is a no lace and a white lace option as well). This can be worn on its own or with a silky pair of stockings or a gauzy lace jacket.

The contrast of the brass buttons against the dark red/black of the corset is fantastic, as it lightens the stark colouring of the corset. The lace texture is truely realistic as you can almost feel the different thicknesses of the threads used.

The second outfit is also a dollarbie from the huge sale that Aqua was having before moving to a new location and to make way for a new collection.

This outfit reminded me of the four years I lived in Trinidad where my younger brother attended kindergarten andt had to wear a red/white check shirt and khaki shorts as a uniform at the ages of 2 – 4.
