fashion challenge

I just want to tell you how much I love getting your emails with fashion questions. I feel like Tim Gunn, so keep them coming! I was very honored and flattered to receive this hilarious email from local blogger Amy, issuing me a "fashion challenge". 

Dear Melodie,
I'm going to a bachelorette party in the Hamptons and have been stressing about what to wear. Inspired by your finds, I headed out to Forever 21 last weekend and was totally overwhelmed. Everything seemed too casual and nothing screamed Hamptons- evening. Plus it was huge! I tried on a couple things, including a piece that I'm still not sure was a shirt or a dress. Either way, I could see my butt. Also there were attacked ensued, and I opted for a cheesesteak in the food court.

The challenge: Create a Girls Night Evening Look in Black
The budget: frugal- under $50
The client: thin girl, with no boobs, decent butt

Double bonus points for finding something that I could actually wear again.

So, last night, I accepted the challenge and we met at Forever 21 to find the perfect outfit and accessories for her budget! Did I do it? Did I come in under budget? Amy will be taking a photo of her outfit while in the Hamptons so stay tuned to see what we found!
