Supermarket Chic...

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Yes its that time again! Another Take Ten challenge.. this time was a little different to other challenges Tesco F & F Couture offered us the idea of selecting different items for each other..
This is the dress Jen picked for me.

The dress is a slightly opaque chiffon with a pattern of velvet in places,
I think the colour looks really pretty when it hits the light. I found it a very dressy item and wanted to tone it down to wear during the day so I teamed it with thick knitted socks, a long cardigan and flat brogues.





I used a waist belt to nip it in at the waist and pull it up an inch or two so the hem
hit above the knee.

Cardigan: Topshop, Dress: Tesco F & F Couture, Belt: Topshop, Tights: c/o Tabio,
Brogues: River Island, Necklace: H&M.


Here is how the other lovely ladies tackled their chosen items.
Jazmine, Jen, Adele,Mj, Ellie, Sabine, Sarah, Sherin Nic and me!

And finally sorry for the delay! the Miss Selfridge t-shirt giveaway winners:
Winning the black tee: Katie Styles
Blue halterneck: Caz
Batwing bejewelled top: Belle vintage

Congrats girlies! send me your addresses to: the.magpiegirl@gmail.com
and your prizes will be on there way to you. :) x

  1. I love your haircut, I'm looking forward to dying mine a more vibrant red once the blondey bits grow out! I've found some great real leather knee high boots at Asda recently for only £30.
