Announcing the Fabulously Frugal Fall Fashion Challenge!


Is anyone else ready for fall?!? It's our favorite time of the year here at AquaSeventy6.  The cool air, the falling leaves...until now all of that has been a fantasy.  As you know, we are two Native Floridians who just recently moved to cities that have--get this--SEASONS!

In the past, we would have had to wait until November, December or even January to bust out our scarves and boots.  Because of this, our cool weather wardrobe is what you could call limited. 

Enter our favorite site: Pinterest.  For weeks, a slew of gorgeous fall outfits have been popping up everywhere on the site. We have been inspired to revamp our entire wardrobe.  That, of course, comes with a price.  So we came up with a fantastic idea that will help us be fashionistas on a budget, and we are challenging you to do the same.

Join us in the Fabulous Frugal Fall Fashion Challenge.

Here's how it works:

Each Monday, AquaSeventy6 will post 4 related fall looks from our Pinterest boards plus a bonus accessory.  You are challenged to do (at least) one of the following:
  • Recreate a similar outfit head-to-toe.  This can mean that you recreate 1, 2, 3 or all 4 of the looks featured that week.
  • Create your very own look inspired by the photos we have posted
  • Use the bonus accessory in your completed look
  • Create an outfit inspired by the bonus accessory
Here is where the FRUGAL part comes in.  The looks you create must be made up from:
  • Garments/accessories you find at a thrift store/consignment store/yard sale/etc.
  • Garments/accessories you already own.
  • Garments/accessories you create.
You have until Friday of that week to recreate the outfit(s) and blog about them. Make sure to tell us where you found the pieces and how much (little) you spent on them. Don't forget to add the button below to your blog post, and we would LOVE if you became a follower.

Come back to AquaSeventy6 on Fridays to see how we have recreated the looks, as well.  You are invited to add the link to your blog post on our comments section and the following week we will feature our favorite looks on our site and our Facebook and Twitter pages


Don't have a blog, but you still want to join in?  NO PROBLEM!!  Create your look, upload the photos to a share site (ie: Photobucket) and add the link, as well as the purchase/cost details, in our comments section on Friday for a chance to have your look featured.

 The Fabulously Frugal Fall Fashion Challenge begins this Monday, September 12, and will run for 6 weeks.  By the end of the challenge you should have an extensive, albeit inexpensive fall wardrobe. 
ARE YOU IN??
