The Under $75 Event Outfit

Most of us can get away with a pretty basic wardrobe most of the time (our red carpet event invitations keep getting lost in the mail, evidently). However, and especially this time of year, the occasional “occasion” presents itself, and we find ourselves scrambling to find something a little more special to slip into. With plenty of family, work, and community holiday events just around the corner—and a budget that’s slim, to say the least—we’ve pulled together this event look for under $75 (and the red satin dress alone looks like it’s worth more than that . . . )
