However, there is always room for something else, something that has the magical makes you look younger/taller/slimmer/yet still essentially you factor.
So when I was challenged by Netvouchercodes.co.uk to create an outfit for under £50, of course, I said yes.
I like a tunic - flattering and comfy - so I picked this at £21 from La Redoute.
And then some skinny jeans to go with it. Only £12.50!
That leaves enough for a scarf.
At £17 it has bust the budget by 50p.
But then I realise that buying stuff through Netvouchercodes will get me a £15 discount for orders at La Redoute of more than £30.
So I can afford shoes and still have change.
This post was created in partnership with Netvouchercodes and I had fun.
