The Fashion Catalyst Featured On WA Today

The Fashion Catalyst was given a serious challenge by WA Today’s Daile Pepper – a challenge to find an on-trend, on-budget outfit, all for under $200 at Westfield Innaloo.



It could be a difficult challenge to get a whole outfit for under $200 these days however, my accurate budgeting and forecasting skills ensured that I ticked off all the right garments and accessories.  Always remember that you can mix these beauties with existing accessories in your wardrobe too.  So, here’s what I chose:

I started with the most expensive garment first, the printed on-trend cream coloured maxi dress from Jeans West for only $119; Daile expressed that she did not want anything tight or skimpy and the maxi-dress was a natural on-trend, on-budget choice – perfect for summer weather.  Next I chose a light denim vest from Jay Jays for $29.95 to compliment the neutral tones of the maxi and to give it a smooth and relaxed feel.  I teamed these with beige open toe wedge sandals from Spendless for $29.95 and accessorised with some gold and wood tone bangles from Diva for $9.95 and an over the body satchel handbag reduced down to only $9.95 at Dotti.  What an absolute bargain!

This outfit can easily be transformed from chic day wear to casual evening wear by teaming it with a gorgeous pair of high heels.

How did I do?  See the article here:

Vicky began her career writing fashion, lifestyle and music related articles for a diverse range of print and digital media outlets. Shortly thereafter – upon discovering that a vast majority of the fashion industry were being out-shadowed by the commercial conglomerates of the world – Vicky (who equally grew tired of having no creative freedom herself) set out to create her own digital publishing platform that focused on promoting the incredible talents of all creatives within the fashion industry. Which is how The Fashion Catalyst began in 2009.
