I'm sure you are all feeling the pinch this month too, payday can't come quick enough. I've had just enough money to cover my rent, bills and train fare to work and absolutely nothing else! Luckily I had received some 'Love To Shop' vouchers from work so I figured I'm allowed to treat myself to something. My local New Look held a special VIP night last night with 20% off everything including sale so I couldn't resist having a bit of a bargain hunt...
My sale haul!
Firstly are these amazing shorts which are actually from the kids range! I thought they'd be perfect for summer although I pretty much live in shorts all year round. They're an over-dyed pink with neon fraying which is right up my street. The best part? They cost me £1.80 reduced from £14.99!!!
I am very much a patterned tights fiend. I'm sure I've got over 50 pairs of patterned tights! I really love House of Holland tights and these little polka dot numbers are so cute. They were reduced from £12.99 to just £2.60! Backseam tights are another favourite and the gold glittery bows on these Gold by Giles ones are lovely. They were reduced from £7.99 to EIGHTY PENCE! yep, 80p! According to the website they're not even in the sale so I win :)
Ok, I'm cheating a little bit with the creepers because I didn't buy them yesterday at the VIP night, I bought them last week. I was just having a mooch around town just to look in the sales and New Look had reduced ALL sale shoes to just £5. Cue to me trying on every single pair of size 7 sale shoes in the shop, that's what days off are for right!? I was torn between this pair and a houndstooth pair of creepers that weren't quite as stacked. In the end I decided that black ones will go with a lot more and although they are still a faddy kind of shoe, I think they are more wearable than the houndstooth print. I have resisted buying creepers for so long! I couldn't justify buying the Underground ones that I've wanted for years because I just know I wouldn't get my moneys worth out of a £70 pair of creepers and I've always thought the cheaper ones look...well...cheap! This pair seem to be well made and for a fiver I can't complain!
So altogether my haul cost me just £9.80! BARGAIN! The sale on the New Look website is a bit poop but I'd advise checking your local store to get more choice and see if they're hosting a discount evening.
Have you found any gems this sale season?
