Yes, folks... it's that time of the week again!  Today we're bringing you a fabulous outfit from the recently much-improved Marks & Spencer, with the challenge of finding a complete party look - shoes and accessories included - for under £100.  Because some of you will be meeting your potential in-laws for the first time this Christmas, we went for a look that would pass even the snootiest future mother-in-law's inspection!


To see how M&S fared, keep reading after the cut...

This classic cinched-waist, fitted lace dress (modelled by the fabulous Erin O'Connor) makes the perfect base for an understated-chic look at £45.  For timeless elegance, accessorise with pearl-effect necklace and drop earrings, £9.50 for the set; a simple ruched satin clutch, a steal at £5; and finish the look with these pearlised t-bar heels we recently featured on Shoewawa, for £39.50.  The total, you ask? Exactly £99!

You'll have the monster-in-law won over in seconds! (or wishing she looked just as fabulous as you!)
