glamourween blogger challenge with tesco

15/10/2013


what i'm wearing:
F&F black mesh dress* (in store £16)
F&F jewelled disc earrings* (in store £3.50)

it's just over two weeks now until halloween so unless you have been invited to a party, when you get to my age it isn't really acceptable to go all out costume and all. so when tesco contacted inviting me to take part in their glamourween competition i jumped at the chance. along with fourteen other bloggers we were given £50 to spend on the clothingattesco website to create our own interpretation of an 'urban witch' look. originally i ordered a black lace shift dress but unfortunately something happened and i ended up getting a size 18 maxi dress so to not miss out i took it into my local tesco store and exchanged it for some other pieces i could use instead. for me, when i think of a witches outfit i automatically think of dark colours; black, purple and greens. using that as inspiration to try and do a fashionable approach to this i decided a contrast of black textures would make it a lot more interesting than me just standing in a long black cotton dress. for me personally, i would have loved to have used a wine coloured lipstick instead of red but tesco were lovely enough to send a little cauldron of barry m and revlon pieces to use i thought it would be rude not too. plus everyone knows i love a red lipstick. i think my favourite part of the outfit that definitely keeps in theme with 'urban witch' is my jewelled earring i picked up for £3.50! bargain or what right? i can't put my finger on it but they just remind me of stones you would find in possession of witches when doing witchcraft. overall, people might not think this isn't really halloween-esque but to me i think it's quite lovely. my only wish is that i'd had a bit of velvet to include into it. anyway back to my book of spells.... hope you like.

p.s sorry about the quality of the photos, the sun only decided to come out AFTER i did this post. how annoying.

  2. I absolutely love this outfit :) I would definitely wear it to a Halloween party - it's definitely glam! Kind of how you'd imagine a Hollywood movie to dress up their witches, in a good way haha! Does that make any sense? But on an F&F budget :)
    All in all you look lovely :) and I would probably wear the gilet anyway! I'm a sucker for a gilet :)
    Cute post and early happy Glamour-ween!
    Keep in touch!
