Christmas Party Outfit for £100

I keep getting asked to take part in blogging competitions. You make up a virtual outfit and pitch your entry against a few hundred bloggers half your age and you don’t win – so cynical in my old age!
Anyway, I’ve avoided them to date but this one from Fashion Vouchers appealed to me as I was already planning a similar post myself – A Christmas Party Outfit for £100.  
Out of the 100’s of brands Fashion Voucher list discounts for, I chose Oasis as they have 25% off lots of party stuff at the moment. It meant I could get shoes and bag for the price and left me with about £8 for the taxi home! Here’s my outfit..

Zip Detail T-Shirt – £18.75 (£25)
Snakeskin Effect Clutch – £22.50 (£30)
Metal Toe Cap Heels – £33.75 (£45)
Matt & Shine Leggings – £13.50 (£18)

I picked items that I could work with in other ways in my wardrobe. While I love dresses, I find going out dresses get limited wear. But if you get some good separates, you can recycle them much easier – sometimes even in daytime. Here they are in more detail – you can click on any of the photos to see the item on the Oasis website.

I picked this top as it’s a wearable daytime top too

Loving the zip detail at the neck and the black piping makes it perfect for matching with black jeans, trousers or even tucked into a pencil skirt for work. It’s got a dipped hem at the back and I would size up to ensure good coverage over the leggings – a bit outside the comfort zone these, but I’ve been keen to embrace the pleather look in a trouser and I figure these are a cost effective way to do it. Also, when you’re on a night out, you can get away with something a bit more risqué so I would definitely try them for this. And after a few wears at night, I would try with a chunky jumper and ankle boots for daytime:

Every girl should have a great pair of black high heels for going out. When wearing with skinnies or leggings, I love something with a bit of dressy detail so these gold toe-cap stilettos are perfect. And I know they’ll work really well to jazz up blue jeans and a blazer for a fashion show or a more casual night out with the girls:

And finally, what’s not to love about this clutch? On trend with it’s snakeskin, the colour will work all year round and I’m thinking it would be great for a wedding too.

With the 25% off I found on Fashion Voucher’s website, the total bill (including delivery to Northern Ireland) is £92.49. But this discount is only valid until tomorrow night (30th November!) so get ordering!
I should point out that this is not a sponsored post. I was not paid or induced to do the post but I might (ha!) win a prize if it’s deemed utterly wonderful. Let’s not lose any sleep wondering about that but instead look forward to my wonderful 1000 Facebook Fans/Christmas competition coming up on the blog in a day or so (sick kiddie dependent – I have two at home right now coughing their little heads off). Once I get some blogging time to myself, I’ll fill you on on the gorgeous prizes up for grabs!

    Love those shoes and that clutch bag. That’s a really clever party outfit as everything, as you say, can be worn again. Did I mention that I love the shoes and clutch bag?!

    I love that clutch! Am going to seek that one out, thanks for the tip off! Will go perfectly with the black peplum dress I just ought from the Gok range in Sainsburys! Xxx

  6. I agree about the separates. I have so many dresses that barely get a wear. Thank heavens for Dressember.
