Be Hot To Trot with #GeorgeousRacewear from George At ASDA

When I was recently asked to put together an event ready outfit with a budget of £60, I was unsure whether I'd really be able to squeeze in everything from the dress to the shoes. How wrong I was! The #GeorgeousRacewear* challenge from George at ASDA allowed me to find the perfect dress for any special occasion you might have coming up. Whether you're looking for something to wear to a wedding, the races or somewhere fancy, George have proven that you don't need to break the bank to look like a million dollars.

Graduate Fashion Week Lace Dress - £25
Jersey Shrug - £6
Gladiator Plait Strap Sandals - £14

Browsing through the dresses, it was the Graduate Fashion Week Lace Dress which really caught my eye. A beautiful coral red, the lace radiates Summer sophistication and features key details such as a back keyhole fastening and tailored shape. Part of The Graduate Fashion Week collection, this dress has been designed by a team of fashion up-and-comers. It's modern twist on a timeless shape will ensure it stays a key item in any lady's wardrobe!

I teamed the dress with a black Jersey Shrug and the super comfy Gladiator Plait Strap Sandals. The simple black shrug helped to break the outfit up, and also offered a little warmth as the temperature dipped in the evening. The sandals with their wedge shape were the perfect alternative to heels, and much comfier if staying on your feet all day.

Tassel Cross Body Bag - £10

Every lady needs a handbag to complete her outfit, and I fell head over heels with this Tassel Cross Body Bag option. Designed to wear as a cross body bag, it's the perfect size for keeping all your essentials close. I used two kilt pins to convert the strap into a handbag shape making it even more versatile.

At this point, I had spent £55 of the £60 budget, so managed to squeeze in a pair of sunglasses to protect my eyes whilst being outdoors all day.

Aviator Sunglasses - £3.50

Available in a whole range of tints and finishes, I choose the white Aviator Sunglasses as they were the ones which would most closely match my outfit. 

However there's no getting around the fact that Lord Dicely wore them much better than I did! With his suit and long hair, he looked as if he'd just stepped out of a photoshoot for an album cover!

Until next time,

  1. Fabulous post Diana. Red suits you so well and I love that you've put your look together using everything from Asda :) xxx

  2. You look so lovely, what a great outfit. Would never have thought of Asda for clothes for myself, though I used to buy school uniform there. Must revisit it soon.
