I must admit I am one of the easiest people to sell to give me a coupin’, sale or pop up shop and sure as hell I’ll be first in the que, handbags at dawn. There is nothing I love more than wearing a H2T sale outfit, walking out the door feeling a million bucks after spending penny’s. My secret? It’s all in the timing.
If you have been keeping up to date with posts, you may have heard me talk about my quest to love thy legs, something I have never done. To try and make this happen, I am taking the ‘grit your teeth and bear it’ approach by pushing myself to wear things that I would usually question. The theory is if I ‘wear something (most) days that scare you’ I will magically come into thinking that my legs ain’t all that bad and so far, I’ve not chopped them off yet!
A few weeks back I received an email with a 20% off voucher from Missguided. I have only bought one pair of shoes before (using another coupin!) so thought I would give the new collection a swatch. I saw this adorable mini dress and couldn’t help but fall for it. Obviously, my first reaction was “that would be perfect if it was a midi” but then thought at the bargain price of £13 (without my coupin’) it was pretty much a steal to include in my wee experiment. I absolutely love white and lilac together, something about it reminds me of a 60’s space age cartoon character – my proffered aesthetic – so of course it has to be mine. When it arrived it was a little shorter than expected and the zip was mega stiff, but a wiggle and finger tip test gave it the all go to wear at the relaunch of the Abandon Ship Apparel store in Princes Square. I teamed the dress with my failsafe Schuh boots (now down to only £25) and my new favourite jacket – my Hayley Scanlan bomber.
When Hayley had her pop up shop in Debenhams last month I had a shopping list as long as my arm. Lucky for me she had a little stash of sale items from her last Queen of Hearts collection which of course gave my credit card palpitations. After trying on pretty much everything I went for this amazing PVC bomber with silver zip detailing. It seems to be my go to jacket when I’m looking for a leather alternative or something lightweight for the evenings. Do not let it fool you, this may be one of the most practical jackets I have purchased in a long while. Not only is it light, compact but it is also hellava warm and has four functioning pockets. What’s more for a girl to love right? Have you picked up some sale bargains this season?
