Diva on a Budget
Scarves&Blazers


I'm a type of person that likes to look fabulous without breaking the bank! Why buy one item for R900 when I can get 5 items for that same price. Don't get me wrong I am not queen of cheep and I don't ever substitute quality for quantity. I enjoy splashing out on skincare and perfume. But sometimes you have to see through all the hype and find trendy items for less.


Red Blazer by Mr Price; Star Green scarf by Legit; Check shirt by Mr Price; Blue Jeans by Legit


First up!: 
As some of you might know I am crazy about scarves. I love all textures, shades and prints. With the colder months coming up in the southern hemisphere I love to keep my neck warm with a funky scarf to spruce up my outfit. I found some awesome star, flower and aztec print scarves at Legit for... wait for it... under R60!!! :-) I went a little crazy and almost bought all. My favourite is the green star print scarf. I have nothing in star print and thought this would be a great addition to my growing wardrobe. I don't have a huge amount of fashionable items in my wardrobe. I'm getting there:-)

 Second up!:
 Coloured bold blazers are all the rage and Mr Price has them all! I bought this red one for only R150. Can I get a 'Whoop!'. You can wear these with jeans, tailored black pants or a summer dress. This material is great for those in between seasons when it's not quite cold but not scorching hot either. I love the playful polka dot hem line. Another reason why I bought it:-)
