This month's PFC is hosted by Lauren of Petite on a Penny. PFC 16: Summer Wedding--Create an outfit for a summer wedding (the dress code is up to you). For bonus points (and this is what I'll be doing!) try to make your whole outfit, head to toe, come in under $100! (Or, exclude shoes and accessories to meet the $100 mark.)
I mentioned earlier that I'm attending 5 weddings this summer. Yes. That's right. It's wedding season.

My look rings up to a grand total of $97--shoes, accessories, and a few makeup items included. Admittedly, I stalked that Banana Republic dress, and for me, it definitely takes patience and numerous trips to the mall to get a great deal. When it comes to clothes, I sometimes operate on the Ramen Noodle Budget.
The Ramen Noodle Budget, you ask? Check out the gentlemen of Put This On for an explanation of the concept (and see their illustration below) that it can be difficult to score quality pieces at an ideal price. I confess to shopping on the Ramen Noodle Budget, and I try to keep to the Good Quality &; Cheap side of the budget, though it can be hard to resist the fast and trendy fashion of Forever 21 and H&M.
Don't forget to check out what the other ladies put together for this PFC at Petite on a Penny.
