You all know I am the ultimate bargain hunter but can I put together a complete outfit for under $100? Of course I can, with the help of RetailMeNot coupons.
Let me tell you something, every single time I make a transaction online I check with RetailMeNot before checking out. True story. There is always a better deal out there, whether it is free shipping or an extra 15% off – every penny counts.
For this challenge I thought up a few of my favorite chic for cheap stores and searched them on RetailMeNot to find out if there were any must-use coupons. And of course there were. For every store I checked, there was a handful of coupons. Brilliant.
Finally I looked up JC Penney and found that the clearance items were up to 75% off with free shipping. There I found a really cool hounds tooth motorcycle jacket for $24. Can’t beat that with a stick.
Finding, pricing, and purchasing these items only took me 30 minutes. How cool is that? Let’s take a look at my outfit breakdown, shall we?

Pretty amazing savings, huh? Now onto my outfit inspiration, I was channeling two trends while creating this outfit.
1.) Sparkle. I must still be feeling the Christmas spirit because I can’t get enough sequins, glitter, and sparkle. To avoid being a total disco ball, I kept most of the shine in the shoes. I tied it all together with the subtle shine in the Aryn K sweater.
2.) Mixed prints. I love mixing prints! I decided to mix up stripes and hounds tooth. Why does it work? Because they are both in the black, white, and gray color family. This is a great risk-free way to mix prints.
So what do you think of my RetailMeNot outfit for under $100? I am pretty darn happy with it!
