What I Wore | Supermarket Styling!

When I go shopping for clothes the last places I usually think to explore are supermarkets – but when Debt Free Direct got in touch about their Making Money Go Further campaign I was intrigued. You know I’m always keen on a bargain and the whole idea is to see how supermarket own brand clothes compare against the high street. Interesting, non?

I agreed to take on the challenge but automatically second guessed myself. What was I thinking? I’d never looked to a supermarket for fashion inspiration, surely I wasn’t going to be able to pull this off? But I sucked it up and made a decision on my supermarket of choice: ASDA.

My plan was to find an outfit that was completely true to my style so that it would be super easy to compare the pieces and their prices to my current high-street wardrobe. I also decided that I would make my purchase online, so that I would be picking the items based purely on their price and look rather than examining the quality before purchasing.

It took me all of 20 minutes to pick an entire outfit...A daisy print shirt, high waisted leggings, black grunge ankle boots and a blacksatchel style bag.

Not only was the site super easy to navigate, my order arrived in record time – but the very best bit? The entire outfit cost a smidgen over £70 (including delivery), which I can’t quite fathom. I mean, that’s an entire outfit right there that you just won’t get from high-street stores at that price.

So, what’s the quality like?
The Shirt: RRP £12 - Although it’s perhaps not as soft as some of my high-street shirts, it is pretty perfect with a lovely pattern and flattering fit.
The Leggings: RRP £12 - Are amazing. I love the zip detail and ribbed sides – you’d easily think they were another Zara purchase. They fit really snugly but have a nice amount of stretchiness to them so they don’t feel like they’re going to rip when I bend over ;)
The Boots: RRP £38 - Literally the comfiest pair of boots I have ever purchased, I always have a problem with shoes fitting me, but these are a dream. They are so soft, yet sturdy and look like something you could find in All Saints. For £38 I actually can’t believe how amazingly brilliant they are.
The Bag: Is £9...I know. Not only that, it’s like a Mary Poppins bag and manages to fit my entire life in it. The strap is thick, which means it can carry the weight of a beauty bloggers makeup bag and it’s got lots of little compartments for storing bits. To be honest I can’t tell the difference between this and my Zara satchel that is treble the price.

What do you think guys? I'm pretty darn impressed and it certainly gives my high-street pieces a run for their money!

You actually have Disney princess hair. I am so damn jealous. All I've been seeing on the blogosphere today is people with awesome hair. Rock it.

Supermarket shopping is the best! Loads of my clothes come from the likes of Sainsbury's and George at ASDA :)

Im always reluctant to buy boots online as im a five and a half so never know whether to get a 5 or 6! Your hair looks bloody amazing, can you do a video on that look!!! You should really be a model not only do you have the loooks but you can pose so perfectly and always look like youve come out of Vogue!!!! Xx Kate xx

Megs, you look amazing! I love the floral print on the shirt- it's floral but it's not over the top at all and it works so well with everything else - and your hair! In love!!!

Wow that is amazing! I love reading bargain stories like this so I thoroughly enjoyed this post!
I must admit I think Asda is far more improved on their clothing ranges over the years than they used to be :)
