Welcome to MyDCStyle’s Summer Steak Series Contest!
Amidst the slow recovery from the recession, I thought I’d dish out a series of 3 posts based around budget shopping and steak dinners (a win-win)! Basically, I'll create outfits for the same cost of a steak dinner at one of the priciest steakhouses in town, to a moderately expensive spot, down to the least likely to tap your wallet dry.
Oh, and each post will involve a contest, too! I'll ask you to submit a photo of your own look for less and the reader whose outfit I pick will win a gift card for the nominal value of a steak dinner at the respective steak house! Fabulous, right?! Then let's get started!
$50 would get you a juicy filet mignon with a side, then you add an additional $12 for a glass of red wine to wash it all down with and after a gracious 20% tip, you’re spending approximately $75.
So here are a few of MyDCStyle’s picks for $75 or less so that for the price of a steak dinner at J&G Steakhouse you too could look like one of these sizzlin' pieces of meat! ;-)
Black dress available at ASOS for $65.61
Pair this figure-flattering, black, knee-length dress from ASOS with a pair of strappy, open-toe heels or leopard print or red heels - sexy! Whatever you choose, the beauty of a classic black dress like this is you can pair it with SO many accessories and shoes! If you're keeping it soft in regards to your shoe color, add a bold colored clutch and you’ll be set!
Pencil Dress $68.96 available at ASOS
You’ll make heads turn in this sexy off-white number from ASOS. Pair it with a pair of gold strappy heels or black patent heels - so chic! Adorn yourself with gold jewelry and dress your lips up with a bright coral lipstick – hot!
Asymmetric dress available at Zara $59.50
This gorgeous dark violet-blue dress from Zara is flirty, feminine and fun! Pair it with open-toe nude heels and you'll not only lengthen your torso but your legs will go on and on and on! Accessorize with gold chandelier earrings and/or a stack of gold and jewel-toned bangles. Or wear a set of elaborate turquoise earrings and you'll be oh-so-fierce!
Dress with Frills available at Zara $59.50
Tis' the season of bright and bold colors, so this sexy and flirty aqua green dress from Zara adds the perfect pop of color and will look great with a tan! Seen above with pink heels - fun! Or just wear it with your oh-so-versatile nude heels and put the hot pink on your lips - fabulous!!!
