How to pull together a Red Carpet Look for under $100!
I’m heading to the Cinderella Movie Premiere Red Carpet Event in California this weekend. Cinderella opens March 13th and I hope all of you go and see it. It’s going to be amazing!! While I’m aware that not everyone will have a chance to walk an actual red carpet, these tips should help for an amazing date night, formal affair, or a fun girls night out!
There is a lot of planning that goes into these amazing trips. We interview the cast and directors, watch a sneak peek of the movie, attend parties, and WALK the Red Carpet with the stars. This frugal girl worked her magic to pull off a look under $100! My sister came to the rescue (thank you Fairy Godmother Karen) with a clutch and bracelet. We will receive 1-2 more accessories at the event as well from the amazing team at JCPenney during the GlamBall. I know that not all of you will be able to borrow items, so I added in some great pieces that I found to keep your price down. PS JCPenney Currently has a $10 off $25 coupon. AND I spotted cute Cinderella Tops.
I shopped mainly at Macy’s as they have some amazing sales & deals. And their selection was awesome. I took advantage of their credit card promotion and will get 20% off my first statement!! We always pay it off when the bill arrives. If you can’t take advantage of this deal, you will still save quite a bit with their sales.
Here is my breakdown:
Blue evening gown by Sangria: $64.99 – 20% sale – 15% with code TICKET = $44.19
Silver Clutch: $0 (borrowed!)
Bracelet $0 (borrowed)
Silver Heels: On Sale for $34.30 -15% with code TICKET = $29.16
Earrings $16 – 15% for spending $100 total = $13.60
Ballet Flats for pre & post red carpet parties- $34.99 – 30% Kohls Discount= $24.49
My total: $111.44
– $17.39 (this will come off my first statement for opening a card)
FINAL COST: $94.05 (plus tax)
Here are some other awesome deals:
Tip: Don’t have anyone to lend you items? Forget the ballet shoes! Opt for comfortable heels and use the cash for a nice clutch or accessory!
Tip: Don’t be afraid to ask for discounts. While purchasing my shoes, I spotted a pair of flats that were amazing! I asked for a discount and was told I could save 25% if I bought BOTH pairs. ASK ASK ASK!
