Marshalls recently challenged a few of the Lucky Style Collective members to take a $100 Marshalls gift card and shop for a head-to-toe look featuring color, prints, or lady-like clothing with an edge. Um, challenge accepted!
Rather than just meander around the store aimlessly, I decided to take my fall wishlist, which is full of bright jewel colors for autumn and see if I could find similar pieces at a much more affordable price. I think I did okay (sorry I can't do an outfit post; I am still enormously pregnant and these are for after):
1. black ballet slippers with gold caps on the toes (Nine West- $23) // 2. a slim yellow clutch (Steve Madden- $20) // 3. a teal button-up blouse (Edge- $15) // 4. navy ankle length pants (Cynthia Rowley- $30) // 5. a black and white striped tank (Nine 1 Eight- $8) // 6. skinny red slacks (Seven- $30). TOTAL: $126
Okay, okay... so I went a little over, but keep in mind that if I would have bought these six items off my original fall shopping list, I would have spent $885 (gasp! I think I just had a mini heart attack!). And those Nine West flats and Cynthia Rowley pants are to die for. I actually like them better than the Tory Burch flats and the Banana Republic pants I had on my original list.
At Marshalls, it is surprisingly easy to put together not one but two head-to-toe looks for the fall with around $100, and now I'd like to challenge you to do the same. One very lucky Adored Austin reader will win a $100 giftcard to Marshalls to find pieces from her own fall wardrobe wishlist. Isn't that awesome? Simply fill out the form below to enter:

Let's connect: Adored Austin is on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, and Bloglovin. I often give a heads up on sales and giveaways (like this one) and say wildly inappropriate things or make random Lord of the Rings references that I can't post here. You want in on that, right?
