    The 100 outfit challenge

    Think this is a great idea and could do with a thread of it's own.

    RULES:

    - No freebies
    - Sale prices are ok
    - Don't include underwear, socks etc in the price
    - Must include footwear


    Who will be first to try?

    Agreed. Do we need any rules/guidelines other than "under 100" e.g. that old scarf that used to belong to my granddad (free), or the shoes that I got in the sale (50, but rrp is 120).

    Is it just whatever we actually paid for it? So the above items total at 50?

    Just having some initial thoughts of potential outfits, and it's not going to be easy!

    I reckon include sale items as it shows a level of thriftiness and also free items / pass me downs! Basically a budget-management style outfit!

    Off the top of my head.

    - No freebies
    - Sale prices are ok
    - Don't include underwear, socks etc
    - Must include footwear

    Will be interesting to see if people can achieve more than just jeans, tee and converse.

    Yes this is a good set of rules for consistency!

    I'll stick one or 2 up this evening, I can think of some already! They must include shoes in my opinion!!

    Sound all right, though the footwear will be a massive problem!

    I'd be all right with freebies, if they were hand downs from your dad or grandfather or something, but not freebies as in "I worked as a model for Paul Smith, and got this sweet suit for free!"

    This will be a tricky one, though I think I can pull a decent look off from what I've got in my wardrobe. Will have to go through my old footwear to see what I've got that was cheap, though.

    Yeah, defiantly no freebies and shoes are a must. Should make it a bit more interesting.

    Just to clarify, is a picture of me in my Bass Weejun penny loafers, and Calvin Klein boxers acceptable?
