Supermarket Fashion Challenge :)


I very rarely blog about fashion, but I love shopping for clothes and I am not ashamed to say that most of my finds are from George at Asda and F&F at Tesco. They always have fab new collections and all their pieces are reasonably priced and on trend. I also love their basic ranges and I find the quality much better than Primark and other cheap high street stores. When I was asked to take part in the "Making Money Go Further Campaign" by debtfreedirect.co.uk , I knew it was the perfect opportunity for me :) I was given a £75.00 budget to spend on an full outfit from a supermarket of my choice, including top, bottom and shoes. I actually managed to put together 2 outfits and still had some vouchers left! 

Here's what I got with the vouchers:


Stripe Knit Top (£10.00)
Black Vest (£2.00)
Bird Print Kimono (£14.00) 
Wonderfit Jeans (£18.00)
Studded Flats (£6.00)

TOTAL: £50.00


I have been planning to buy the famous Topshop Joni Jeans, but I didn't want to spend £36.00 on something I won't be able to wear once I lose more weight. While browsing Asda's website, I noticed their Wonderfit Jeans and after reading more about them, I simply had to buy a pair! They are half the price of Joni jeans and each sizes fits 3 dress sizes! I got the size L (it fits sizes 16-20) and I still can't believe how comfy they are! They are made with a special  fabric with a lot of stretch, but look and feel like jeans. And NO - they are nothing like jeggings! I am soooo impressed! I can't recommend them enough! I got a black pair as well :) They are AMAZING and possibly revolutionary, if your weight fluctuates or you find other jeans very uncomfortable. 

I wore them with a simple black vest top, the bird print kimono and studded flats. I absolutely love the kimono and I think it is a steal at £14.00! Shops like River Island and Topshop charge between £30 to £70 for similar ones! I wish it was a bit longer, but I love the print and the chiffon fabric feels nice and light - perfect for Spring/Summer.

I also picked up this stripe knit top and I can't stop wearing it. It is made with a very lightweight knit and has a dipped hem and 3/4 sleeves. I love it!!! I know that horizontal stripes make me look bigger, but I couldn't care less :) haha. This top is one of the most comfortable things I have ever worn. It is selling out really quickly though and only available in size 12 online, but you should be able to get it in your local ASDA.

I am not sure why my legs look so fat here :O Not the most flattering outfit, but it's my 'go to' everyday attire.

Do you shop for clothes in supermarkets? And most importantly... do you own a pair of ASDA Wonderfit jeans? 


*I was kindly sent Asda vouchers to cover the cost of my outfit by Debt Free Direct.

  3. You don't look fat at all, you look fab! I love the striped top. I have seen this on another blog site and vowed to purchase then it looked so nice but my nearest store didn't have it in my size - boo :-( I haven't come across the jeans before but they sound well worth a look. Think I may be nipping to ASDA on my way home!

  5. I love your choice of outfits, I guess I need to shop more at George but as I detest the mad chaotic rush of food shopping at Asda, I never get a chance to look round the clothes. I definitely need to invest in those jeans, I don't like wearing 'normal' jeans but want something different to wearing leggings all the time and these seem like the perfect alternative.

  6. I love supermarket clothes shopping - makes buying washing up liquid and loo roll a bit more interesting, doesn't it?! That kimono is a beaut!

  8. Oo those jeans look interesting! I hate wearing jeans as my hips are so much bigger than my waist, and I have large thighs - I basically live in dresses and skirts - but I might look into these! The kimono is gorgeous too. I also really like George's underwear range; the bras fit better than my Victoria Secret bras!
