the sales are my friend

Monday, 7 February 2011

Ok so I have been moaning - ever so slightly - about the sales and their still-annoying presence in shops but they have recently redeemed themselves in my eyes. Evidence:


A few weeks ago I purchased these mouth-watering clogs. I've wanted a pair for a while but found any decent pairs to be too expensive for me, which is just stupid when I probably won't get a huge amount of wear out of them. These Faith babies were £19.50 down from £65 I believe. What a bargain!


This selection of jewellery is what I mentioned here and is from Dorothy Perkins. Apart from the bauble-esque beauty, which was a little extravagant but irrestistible, the pieces were £1/£2 which made my day! I particularly love the black stone pendant and wore it out today.


On the other end of the scale, ELLE Collections is now a whopping £7! While a little miffed, I still decided to buy it - I thoroughly enjoy the creation, and find it quite a keepsake for my 'fashion' shelf. It's also great if you need inspiration or in my case, for my course. Having the key trends readily available in one, I'm going to say, 'bible' is invaluable to me.

Bought anything of interest lately? I'd love to see :)

  12. Those are a real bargain! I wish I had waited to buy clogs as I bought ones without a strap at the back which are really hard to walk in!
