Now it's time for my girl Sarah to strut her stuff and show you her Steal of a Deal outfit for less than 50 bucks! Take it away Sarah!

Hey y'all! I am Sarah from Tucker Up and I am thrilled to pieces to be blogging here at All Things Alisa. Sit back, grab some coffee, and prepare for a budget friendly outfit that will blow. your. mind.

Not only do Alisa and I love clothes, shoes, and all thing fashion, but we also realized we live less that 20 miles from one another. There will be a blate (ya know, a blogger date?) in the near future!

Here is a quick run-digity-down on my life. I have a hubs named Chris who constantly makes my heart melt. Two furbabies that I treat like human children. New homeowner as of April 2012. Newlywed to the hunk mentioned above as of June 16th, 2012. Super in love with clothes,  but because of the items mentioned above, I am on a serious budget! That leads me to the point of this whole post: a fabulous outfit for under $50. Now we are talkin' my language. Lesssss gooo! 

Onto the important stuff! I could blabber on for days about clothes, but I might have a slight obsession when it comes to leopard print. What can I say? It is classic, neutral, and adds that sassy side to any blah outfit. Can I get an Amen?

When Alisa asked me to create an outfit for under $50 my mind started racing with ideas. I think I burned more calories brainstorming ideas for this outfit than going to the gym. Yes, I love fashion that much. What did I turn to for inspiration? Why, Pinterest of course!

I know you have seen this fab picture roaming the streets, ehhhh pages, of Pinterest. Well she made the cut to be on my board and thanks to her, I created the purrrrfect outfit! Here is my inspiration pic.

Isn't her outfit adorbs?! Now the challenge was to find pieces in my closet that don't exceed $50. I would be lying if I said it wasn't tough. I may have had to use my accountant skills (did I mention that is my day job?) in calculating which cardi fit into the equation, literally.

At last, here is the final product:




Pants from Target $20.00 {here} // Shoes from market days $10.00 // Cardigan from Target (on sale) $7.68 // Leopard shirt from TJ Maxx $9.99

Total for outfit: $47.67!!

Excuse the excessive pictures. This is what you get when you ask an engineer to be a photog.

So, ladies and gents. There ya have it. For less than fifty smackaroos you can create the perfect outfit out of items found in your own closet! With a little number crunchin' and cardi-swappin' you can create the perfect outfit on a budget!

Thanks to Alisa for having me over here are her fab blog! Have a great day!!

Also, I'm linking up with Shanna,  I Am Pisces & The Pleated Poppy!
