SUPERCHEAPO - 5 transition outfit for less than £30!

The IFB (Independant Fashion Bloggers) projects are always a great way to step out of your blogging comfort zone and try something new. You may find yourself spending an extra hour or two putting together that post, but the end result is worth it!

This particular project (number 17) is CHANNEL YOUR INNER SUPERHERO. 
I feel that my personal super power is my ability to find quality clothing at cheap-as-chips prices. So, SUPERCHEAPO was unveiled and began her first 'mission'.
