The Perfect Look For A Night Out For Under $35

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Literally! I found this look for under $35. It is perfect for a night out or even Valentine’s Day. Of course this dress came from Fashion Nova. I can’t tell you guys enough how much I love their clothing line. They have outfits for any occasion and for any budget. Make sure you check them out.   

I love dresses for nights out. They are easy and comfortable and you can wear them out anywhere. If you’re the type to go from dinner to a night club or dinner to a movie this is perfect for you! Fashion Nova has a HUGE selection of dresses ranging from XS-3X. You can find dresses for any occasion. Summer dresses to prom dresses they have you covered!  This dress was originally $24.99 and I used a 20% coupon code. See my post How To Look Classy On A Budget “Classy Meets Bossy Edition”  to get tips on discount codes!

I got my open toed booties at Target. Yes TARGET!! I was combing the children’s shoe section for toddler shoes. Target has a great selection of shoes for little girls. I love them because they are skinny and my daughter has very small skinny feet. Anyways, I ended up in the women’s section and they had some fabulous heels and boots. Target has really stepped up their style! Check them out defiantly for cute shoes and accessories. The booties I got were on sale for $11. I couldn’t believe they were so cute and stylish for only $11. Honestly after wearing them that night I can say they were comfortable and not cheap feeling at all.

The one thing I cannot purchase on a budget is my purses and bags. I love nice expensive bags! They are the statement piece to any outfit. Dressed up or down a nice purse will pull any outfit together. Here I am wearing a Chanel handbag. Nice purses last a lifetime and you can pass them down to your children. I like to think I budget purchasing my bags because I will only buy one a year. IDK if that counts as budgeting but I think of it as such! 🙂

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?
