This week, we’ve been taking some brilliant fashion tips from a great blog called Wolf Whistle, written by the ever stylish Amy who lives and breathes fashion!
She is a girl after our own hearts, as has a great eye for re-creating high fashion trends at affordable prices! All the outfits that she posts are very wearable whilst being right on trend – with no better example of this than her Winter Palette post. She also keeps close tabs on the latest designer collections, and her witty insight into all things fashion makes for a really refreshing change!
Be sure to check out Amy’s great looking blog, and perhaps adopt some of her style inspiration!

Last Thursday we launched our debut collection, F&F Limited Edition for the world to see. The night was magnificent – full of cocktails, cupcakes and of course fabulous clothing. We will post up the full report next week but we just had to share a few highlights with you first!
The new online collection is an extension of the F&F label to give you lovely people a wider range of choice exclusively to tesco.com/clothing. Available from mid October, our F&F Limited Edition collection will be regularly updated, with new styles and trends being added to the line every week.
You are sure to find what you from this collection, and if that hasn’t swayed you, the fantastic value for money will, with items starting at just £10.
Amongst our other eye-catching pieces you will find our selection of chunky knitwear, ideal for those autumn weekends.
Here our our favourite pieces from the collection:
Thanks to everyone who took part in our Halloween Giveaway and tweeted their contributions to our Friday ghost story. I think we would all agree that there were some very amusing tweets throughout the day.
Here’s the full spooky story with the winning tweets…
“Deep within the darkest woods lived an old lady. Everyone was scared of her, but no one knew why…It seemed like she had always been there. Generations of kids had dared one another to trick or treat her, the kids would knock at the door, shaking in their boots but never did she answer until one night…
The door creaked open as thunder rolled long and loud from above. Their faces paled and mouths opened in preparation to yell “Trick or Treat” but their voices were muted by the vision of a gnarly hand extended towards them, grasping a bowl of what looked like fingernails and frogs legs.
The children looked at each other in horror. The old lady leant towards them and with a shriek yelled “TRICK”!
Before any of them had chance to move she bent over and grabbed hold of the broom standing by the door. Leaping on she launched herself into the night sky, shrieking and taking with her all of the sweets the children had collected so far.
“Typical” said one. “Mum will never believe we haven’t eaten them all.”
Congrats to all our winners, who have been contacted on Twitter.
As all of your tweets were so good, we’ve decided to reward you all. If you go to the Clothing at Tesco site, you can get 50% of all Halloween costumes! Remember that Monday is the last day you can order to get your goodies in time…Happy Halloween!
In case you hadn’t noticed, we are fast approaching the spookiest night of the year, Halloween!
We have already had our spooky event, where mums got up close and personal with our Halloween range, and now it’s time for everyone else to get involved.
Watch our Twitter page on Friday to join in on our first ever Halloween ghost story! How will it work?
We are going to be tweeting the opening line to a ghost story (ie. It was a dark and stormy night…), and YOU will then be able to tweet us back with the line you think should be next. We will then retweet a tweet from one of our followers, which continues the story. If you are lucky enough to get your tweet in as part of the story, you will win a Halloween goodie bag to help you celebrate Halloween.
We can’t wait until Friday, we are going to start reading some spooky tales now for inspiration…

A couple of month’s ago, we blogged some exciting behind-the-scenes images of an exciting range coming to the site – Tiger Blonde. This week the range has hit the site and has already become a favourite with the ladies over at Tesco HQ. The capsule collection of edgy dresses and separates are perfect for the impending party season. Rather than slavishly following trends, Tiger Blonde adds on trend touches to classic shapes. Our two favourite dresses feature fringing and ruffle detailing to help you stand out from the crowd:
Have you spied our new F&F Couture range yet? Our Couture range has gone in a dramatic new direction for Autumn/Winter 2010, the new range of 21 key pieces features exaggerated silhouttes, gorgeous fabrics and on trend details. Sumptuous fabrics like velvet and devore give the collection a really luxe feel coupled with striking silhouttes create a covetable collection which is perfect for this season. Here’s our catwalk video of the range and our key pieces.
This week, we’ve been reading another great blog from one of the lovely families we met at our Halloween event. A Mother’s Ramblings is written by household supermum Pippa, who likes to throw in loads of fun along with keeping run of the house.
With her blog, Pippa introduces us to her family – made up of Daddy, and two little ones; Top Ender and Baby Boy – and invites us to follow the many adventures she has in store for them! It’s no wonder she recently won the MAD award for Best Family Fun blog, when she lays on exciting activities such as feeding the ducks, days out, and camping! They even love fun so much, they manage to have it doing nothing!
We love that Pippa and her family have such an active approach to having fun, and aren’t afraid to get stuck in! Be sure to check out her blog for some brilliant inspiration!
