Supermarket sweep

004

Here is the debut of my playsuit which you may have seen me twittering about. The toilet dilemma! Argh! It worked out ok, it's a bit more of a pain than when you wear a dress but the playsuit is very comfortable. The playsuit was kindly sent to me by clothing @ Tesco. When I was offered any item of clothing, I was a bit dubious. I have a love/hate relationship with Tesco, I will admit. When they were nearly opening a Tesco on Hope Street in Liverpool i was livid and signed many petitions to stop it. There are just TOO MANY Tescos in Liverpool already! Sometimes their quest for world domination worries me... 

However, their clothes are actually rather good. I remember the first pair of high heels I ever bought, they were from Tesco. I was 16 and hardly ever wore heels, but these were plain black wedges and so began my love affair with high heels. One thing that Tesco is very good for is basics and work wear, as you can see in my collage below:

And bloody cheap too! That red dress is high up on my wish list and only £25! The sweetheart collar is beautiful. I was offered this item of Tesco clothing on the premise of then passing on the favour to another blogger. So, I have chosen a fellow Helen of Clear Your Heart to also choose an item from Tesco. A fellow Helen AND fellow north-westerner, I love her blog and think you should all go and visit! In a few days time she will also be posting about her Tesco clothing. 

Disclaimer: I had a real moral dilemma with this offer, as I hate when blogs over-advertise things, but I do genuinely like their clothing and thought it was  a a great idea to pass the love on to fellow bloggers.

  4. What a beautiful little item! I lvoe how you've styled it too - you look gorgeous. WOW at the Tesco maybe-sort-of-totally Alexa ripoff! What a beaut! Might have to snap that up.

    I think it's a really cool idea of tesco to do a multi-blog freebie when you can pass it along - I can't wait to see what Helen chose! x

  6. I had the exact same dilemma! Oh it's hard isn't it?

    It looks GORGEOUS on you. Toilet issues aside, the perfect piece of clothing!

  7. I do love a sweetheart neckline. I was amazed at the prices, we don't have Tesco's but I didn't thin shoes could be so cheap!

  10. OOH, I like the pay-it-forward idea of this promo. & you passed it along to another kickass Helen, & I love what you picked & how you styled it in a very "you" way!

    Also love the collage you made & the sweetheart neckline dress is SMASHING. I don't normally wear red (not sure why; I think I unconsciously think that I can't) but I'd just love to try it on, see how it looks...

  14. I really cannot wear playsuits. I have a bladder the size of a peanut!

  15. It suits you! I don't think you've convinced me to buy clothes from Tesco though because there are just too many of them around. I was also fuming about the Hope Street planning application. I went away on holiday last year and one appeared on Bold Street in my absence! Chuh.

  22. Very cute playsuit and I love how long your hair has grown. I share your feelings about Tesco, there are far too many of them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I hate Tesco as well, they are spreading everywhere...
    BUT, that playsuit is damn nice.

  24. The playsuit is lovely but I adore that red dress too! Think I might have to check that one out - I've been wanting a plain red dress for a while now :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. You look lovely! And thankyou again xx

  26. Love the playsuit! It's adorable. I really like Clothing at Tesco and think they do a fab job with the line, considering the price. For me the clothing and the supermarket are quite separate, although I do realise its all profit to the same place!

    Can't wait to see what Helen chooses. I love her too! x

  29. gorgeous playsuit! Ah, you pull off bright colors so well. And I agree with the notebook doodles, you hair is getting really long! Makes me want to grow mine out!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, I love it! I've always wanted one but I'm not really a skirt/dresses/show off my legs person - maybe I'll have to pop to Tescos! I also really like their clothing even though they are slowly taking over everywhere...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Tesco? Seriously? I'm headed over there as soon as I finish typing this, I've bene looking for a playsuit like that for absolutely ages! It really suits you - love it with the bright red cardigan!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think actually this is a nice thing to do, not like some bloggers who seem to only advertise these days... the playsuit is indeed something I could bet you'd wear so whye not right? it looks really good on you, and the fact that you pass the love to another blogger is also a nice and innovative thing to do! so congrats!

    ps: agreed on that red dress! it's amazing.

  38. What great Tesco pieces! I can't believe you can find that sort of thing there, though I don't know much about Tesco except for the sandwiches I used to buy in London for lunch.

    I love the grey cape, though I would change the buttons. Still so cute though.

  39. Ahhh, Tesco. Another store that we don't have in the US, haha! We're so deprived! Wish we had them, I'd love to get that playsuit. It's adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Looks lovely! Tesco are pretty good for clothes, I got a few nice summer dresses from there this year and they are so reasonable too! I've never really looked at their workwear but I've just got a new job and so this seems like a good excuse to shop :D

    ReplyDelete
  41. Nice playsuit. Loving the polka dots. And you're hair has grown long! :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. That playsuit is lovely!!! Great. I usually never buy clothes from supermarkets but sometimes you can really make great finds

  43. I like your playsuit. Though I agree the toilet dilema is annoying...
    It's a good print though.
