Am on a really tight budget at the moment as I'm just setting up my own business, which is amazing in that it gives me creative freedom over my work, but it also means I am pretty broke at the moment. There are A LOT of parties coming up in November and December (some of them black tie, some more house party style things) and I'm looking for inexpensive ways to update my look. Is any one else in this position? Has anyone got any ideas? What party staples are really worth spending money on? I would be willing to splash out a little bit on 'the perfect black dress' if anyone can recommend one, but otherwise I want to create a look as inexpensively as possible. Any one with any ideas, please help!
