Party Outfit for Under £100 - Topshop Edition
After our 'under £100' party outfit from Dorothy Perkins, complete with shoes and accessories, passed with flying colours at £88, we thought we'd put another high street store to the test. Given the constant chatter about Topshop's price hikes over the past year, we wanted to see how far £100 would go! As we've been featuring a lot of very girly, dressed-up outfits in our 'Get The Look' series so far, we looked to Topshop for an outfit appropriate for a day-time, more casual do.

First things first. This wasn't an easy outfit to put together, simple as it may look. Topshop's prices certainly aren't bargain basement, and I had to rifle through the website looking for the cheapest tops and accessories to keep to budget.
The look consists of the universally flattering boot-cut 'V Jeans' at £40, with a round-necked, collared blouse at £25, to give a nipped-in, flattering shape. The raspberry ballet flat came in at £28, which wasn't too bad given that they're leather; and because it's scientific fact that women need to carry more things during the day, than at night - we added the cotton raspberry print tote at a reasonable £6. The total, you ask? Topshop grazed in at £99 exactly.
