I had a blast this week with a bunch of fashion media friends at Coquitlam Centre. The task was in one hour to pull together an outfit for $150. It was pretty fun to watch the power changing and the creativity. Okay most of us might have gone a bit over budget, but success!

I think Kelsey Klassen (The Westender) was my favorite transformation. She found this black and white sunflower Guess jeans and black and white striped top paired with a light denim shirt on top.

I scored a deal on a strapless maxi dress in bold stripes from Jacob, with a big hat and gold accessories. It didn’t go with the outfit but my shopping also included this funky, python print runners from H&M.

I don’t get out to this mall near enough, but now that it’s got a Target I think I need to make the trek more often!

P.S. Coquitlam Centre’s Best Dressed for Less Sales ends July 14.
