What I got in the Sales

Happy New Year !!

This is what I picked up in the sales, I didn’t go to mad for once.

River Island 

I was really disapointed by there sale this year, I gave myself €100 budget for river island how I couldn’t go to mad but that really wasn’t going to happen.

Khaki handbag on sale for €14 I think it was €28, I love this colour and bag looks very expensive.

Black stripe soft tie tapered trousers, you can’t see the stipe in this picture, but they are kind of sliky. I did buy them for work but they are to shinny ,I decided to keep them as I will wear them on a night out instead they are on sale for €20 again I think they wore €40. I know, I need to keep receipts.

Again another work buy, Black patent tassel loafers these are so comfortable on and perfect for work, I’m not really a heels type of girl in work and these are smart looking on sale for €24 they wore €44.

Office 

I ordered these online just before Christmas but of course they didn’t arrive till after Christmas. I have never had a pair of New Balance but always wanted a pair and I seen these I knew they would be perfect, I paid for them in pounds they are on sale for £40 reduced from £69.99

Dorothy Perkins

Rant Alert, this dress I picked up in the shop and it was on sale for €20 it was €45 again this is for work. I was so happy with this find and the dress is lovely on. So today I check online to link it on here and its on sale for €26 but onsale for £20 on the uk site that is €6 extra its always the same with Dorothy Perkins they always rip you off in euro, this really annoys me about retailers.

That’s everything, I didn’t go to mad and as you can see most is for work which I always find sale time is the perfect time to up-date your work look.

Happy Shopping

Lots of love

River Island Work Wear On A Budget

I decided my work wear needed updating and I decided to stay away from Penneys for once and hit River Island but I needed to do it on a budget of €150.

So I assumed would only be able to get maybe three items so I decided to hit the sale section first and go from there.

Even though it is summer you can never go wrong with a pair of black trousers and I love the leather look waist these wore €50 now €20

Supermarket fashion

Ok so I broke my rule no shopping in January after I read 50 workwear buys to take you from the office to bar on http://www.look.co.uk and fell madly in love with this panelled blue dress and was even more shocked to find out it was from Tesco’s f&f range.

My local Tesco is 20 minutes away from my house and I am there about twice a week and would never really look in the clothes section  so today I went just to have a look at the dress and see if it looked as nice in real life as it did online and it was so  for € 32 i couldn’t go wrong,

imageimageI love a tailored look and adore the Peter Pan collar and three quarter length sleeve and it is so flattering on and comfortable perfect for Friday night drinks.
