Winter Style with Debenhams

[competition now closed] Debenhams are currently inviting bloggers to post about two winter inspired looks using items from the Debenhams website. One lucky winner will win £500 in vouchers and there are runner up prizes up for grabs too. All you need to do is create two winter inspired looks - one for day time, and secondly a party look - with a budget of £250 per outfit. Here is my entry:

Day look:

Red Herring grey strap watch - £24 // Andrea Bucci purple tights - £7.50 // Quiz black cut out ankle boots - £34.99
Black leather gloves with fleece lining - £11.20 // Henry Holland wine quilted stud duffel bag - £14.50
The Collection beige eyelash jumper - £24 // Warehouse coat - £95 // Red Herring black check skirt - £30

Outfit total: £241.19

At this time of year it's all about layering and staying cosy, so I chose this very warm looking eyelash knit jumper, burgundy tights, and fleece lined leather gloves (fashionable AND practical!). The Henry Holland duffel bag is the perfect shade of berry and great for day time with its across the body strap. Tartan skirts continue to be big this season, and the cut out boots have a sensible heel which is ideal for day time. The coat is £95 but worth every penny - beautiful colour, beautiful cut... don't you think? And the watch... words cannot express who much I love this watch... who needs a Michael Kors, eh? ;)

Night look:
Coast faux fur jacket - £99 // Phrase Eight black & gold dress - £99 // The Collection wine court heels - £12.50
Principles by Ben de Lisi gold clutch - £21 // Lancôme l'Absolu Nu lipstick - £10.50

Outfit total: £242

In December and January, my party look tends to revolve around black, lace, sparkles, and berry for a splash of colour. Looking on the Debenhams website I couldn't resist this embellished dress, metallic clutch, and Lancôme lipstick. Also essential at this time of year... a cosy faux fur jacket for the chilly journey home and a sensible sized heel - meaning you can party all night long without nasty blisters ruining your night! With my party inspired outfit coming to less than £250, there's £8 spare for a cheeky cocktail!

If any of the above has caught your eye, do free feel to have a nose on the Debenhams website here. I am already very tempted by the grey coat, cut out boots and the watch, so watch this space!


  1. I love the coat you picked out in the day outfit and the lipstick in the second looks gorgeous! Good luck :) xxx

  2. Elle à l'air magnifique la couleur du rouge Lacôme, et son prix tout aussi intéressant ;) mais j'ai cliqué sur le lien et je n'arrive pas à voir la référence exacte de cette couleur justement.
    Meilleurs vœux en passant pour cette nouvelle année

    1. Malheureusement je crois que cette couleur est épuisée :( et la plupart de ceux qui restent, ils sont vendus d'environ £22 ça semble.... Mais je suis d'accord... £10.50, c'est un très bon prix! x x
