Fabulously Frugal Fall Fashion Challenge: The Floral Challenge and Features

Thanks to all of our readers and followers who participated in The Stripes Challenge last week!  Before we premiere this week’s challenge, here are our favorite link-ups from last week.

Sydney from Chic Stripes sent in these two HAUTE looks.

Anh-Kay and her mini-me combined black and white striped tops with
jeans and brown boots (all from their closets!).  We love Mini’s pop of  color in the hot pink scarf.
Minh brought some color to her black and white dress
with a lime green cardigan all from her closet.

Marcy from k.a.i-y.a. made a statement with her blue stripes
(which happen to match her fab armoire!)  These are items she’s
had for “a million years”. 😉
Geekmum from Half Cocked Living sent us
a photo of her little muse rocking the stripes!
Thanks again for your participation!

Now on to this week’s challenge The Floral Challenge:

 via Pinterest

Bonus Accessory:

Here is a reminder of the rules:

  • Recreate a similar outfit head-to-toe.  This can mean that you recreate 1, 2, 3 or all 4 of the looks featured this 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

This 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 this Friday 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 Friday 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 or you can pin your look to Pinterest) 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.  You may also email your look by clicking on the email tab in our sidebar and using the word “FLORAL” in your subject line.


If you were featured, please pick  up a button on our Button Up tab!

  1. Hi girls… I am enjoying this challenge to the fullest. This weeks theme got me going to the extend that I created 3 outfits. You can find the pictures at


    I did not have to buy anything for the challenge. Just picked up the stuff from my closet.

    First Picture: Top and belt from Forvever 21 and the sweater is from Allen Solly (India).

    Second picture: Top from Express, Jeans from Rue 21, other stuff – gifted.

    Third Picture: Dress from a flee market in India, Jacket from Debenhams (Kuwait) and boots are from Kohl's.


  2. Tanya, I thought the top from Express was gifted too!

    Aqua 76! Wonderful challenge and quite a creative one as well!

    I am a veteran blogger and was directed to your blog through Tanya! Remembering my old blogging days and festivals we used to host! I am looking forward to more participation and finally the featured ones! Good luck everyone.
