The lovely Sera, over at http://www.theagoraphobicfashionista.com/
welcomed me into her challenge, and this November is her plussize edition!
So, for her November edition, we are sampling the delights of https://www.clothingattesco.com/ - and it happened to coincide with the release of their Christmas Party Dresses!
Look at us all, looking very glam!
About a month ago, I went off, with my budget of £30 burning a hole in my virtual pocket!
I thought I'd better start with shoes, otherwise I'd blow the lot on a pretty dress!
So pretty! I opted for the size 8, wide fitting shoe, and I'll be honest, it brightens up my day just knowing they are in there, looking at me, getting ready to be worn and set the dance floor alight!
Okay, so, shoes sorted... Now what...
I knew I was now down to £20, and limited my search accordingly.
I plumped for a size 22, to be on the safe side and here we are!
With my £2 left over, I opted for this belt (which was £4, and I took the gamble to go 'over budget'!
I mainly chose this to connect to the sparkly shoes, and because on the model, I felt the dress needed a little extra 'something'.
It unfortunately doesn't 'work' with the cut of the dress, and as you can see, it gives me some major 'VBO' (Visible Belly Outline).
So, radically, I decided to ditch the belt, and try it as a simple LBD, with the hint of sparkle only in the shoes.
Incidently, I also suspect part of the VBO was down to the key hole surgery and the side effects, BUT, I do think this dress, sans belt, does work better.
And there you have it! I was in need of a LBD for my wardrobe, and I would certainly recommend trying this dress if you get the chance to.
It sits just above my knee (I'm 5'9), and is the ideal dress to see you through the festive season and beyond!
I also added my trusty red lipstick to complete the look.

So, what do you think? I'm actually really impressed that I managed to get a dress, shoes and a belt for £32.
Well done Tesco!
Much love my lovelies,
