I’ve been itching to take part in the challenge since the beginning and my turn finally came around! This is a challenge set up by Sera of The Agoraphobic Fashionista where the aim is to find a complete outfit at budget prices, showing that you can get something fabulous without having to spend major pennies.
This month was sponsored by Tesco and we were given £30 to spend on an outfit to fit the theme party. Now I ended up buying two outfits for this challenge, one which you will see below and the other which was something I would wear for our family boxing day get together. I know that generally at this time of year most people have a party or two to go to, but I don’t because our works Christmas do will most likely end up in us going bowling at lunch time and then on to the pub where I escape as soon as possible and I already have my outfits for Christmas Day and New Years Eve.
I did manage to forget that my 21st birthday is Christmas Day and so I need something glam to wear when I get together with the girls! I’m not sure what we’re doing but it will be a great excuse to get dressed up! Luckily I remembered about my birthday in time and managed to place a quick order on Tuesday which I could run and collect on Wednesday after work, so I did end up with a little rush but I much prefer this outfit.
You can find the Tesco women's partywear range here, where there are many beautiful pieces. However on with the show and time to see what I picked!
Purple Lace Dress - F+F True at Tesco - £20
Black Satin Pleated Clutch Bag - F+F at Tesco - £8
6 Pack of 15 Denier Tights - F+F at Tesco - £2
Black Bow Court Shoes – New Look - £3
How beautiful is the lining of the bag? The leopard print would definitely win me over if the bag hadn’t already!
Just a little close up of the bag so that you can see it clearly.
I had great fun doing this challenge and I can’t wait to see what the other girls have come up with for their outfits, and to have a closer look, you will be able to find theirs by following the links below.
