Fabulously Frugal Fall Fashion Challenge: The Red Challenge and Features

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

Anh-Kay of Glass Slippers on a Budget put together this fab gray-inspired
monochrome outfit from items in her closet.  Love the chunky necklace!
Tanya from Kreative Korner used items she had previously
found in India toput together this gorgeous gray and
black outfit!  We love the bubble top!

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 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 “RED” in your subject line.
