Remember this from a few weeks ago? It's the Walmart Holiday Fitting Room shoot I did with Bethany and Tiara. It was a blast and you can see my full video over at the Walmart Holiday Fitting Room site, alongside some bargainous winter fashions including my absolute fave coat in my segment – a beautiful gray number and some great gift ideas – I've been rocking these fantastic headphones on the bus!
It's funny, when Walmart approached me to participate in this campaign it definitely gave me pause, I hadn't actually ever shopped at a Walmart for fashion, so was it something I was comfortable endorsing? My not having shopped there had very little to do with being against Walmart and a lot more to do with the fact I'm not American, have only lived in the US for 6 years and nowhere near a Walmart for any of that time.
To make my decision I spent some time on their website browsing – I decided if I couldn't find at least 3 things on every page I had no right endorsing it – and lo and behold it really wasn't very hard to get behind – I even purchased a denim shirt there and then that I have lived in.
Anyhow – long story short I'm so happy I participated in the campaign – it was fun and I got some grrrreat goodies. I literally looted the set. I'm not kidding.
Below are some looks I put together with said goodies (and some I ordered post shoot – courtesy of Walmart) and if you'd told me these looks were from Walmart mere months ago I would have been shocked – but not anymore!
I'm a wee bit obsessed with this skirt. The print, the colours, the comfy stretch – it's so on trend for fall it's incredible – and what's more incredible is the fact that it only cost $10. Yup $10.
I paired the look with the Walmart bracelets snatched straight from set – an instant arm party!

This look is definitely more of a run errands – or go for a walk look, but I had to feature this gorgeous wrap cardigan. I love the colours in it, and it's shawl collar is chic and drapey look comfy and flattering. Again – I wore the fun bracelets and a Timex watch I also snagged from set. I love big faced watches and collect vintage Timex watches – well I have three – so it's nice to add a brand new one to the collection!
Cardigan – $16, Watch – $45 – Courtesy of Walmart.

This is my favourite of all the looks – this blouse is super pretty – the blue is the perfect shade, the lace, right on trend and the open back is sexy in a really subtle way. It's also…you guessed it – bargainous! This adorable little blouse (available here) is only $12.
The cute t-strap shoes and sparkly earrings are Walmart too – stolen right off the model ;)
(the skirt is from Forever 21)
Tee hee hee. So this sweater is a stolen from set number. When I was told to pick out what I wanted I said I wanted this. They didn't believe me and jokingly threatened to send it to me. I said. I'm. Not. Kidding. I. Want. This. And – when my neat little parcel arrived – it was clear they believed me. So now I'm proving my point.
It's pretty damn awesome right? You can purchase the sweater right here for a whopping $19.
(I paired the sweater with two skirts – a vintage crochet one and a lace one from Forever 21)
