The wind blew me in...

I can't walk past a shop without going in, that's a fact. Fortunately for my bank balance, it was only a charity shop, and who can honestly say no to bargains like these? 



This dress was four pounds, with a label still on for twenty two pounds!! It's originally from Tu at Sainsbury's. It's a completely see through dress that comes just above the knee with a slip underneath, the same blue colour as the dress.


This had a label on for sixteen pounds and it cost me one pound twenty. It's a lovely floral tee from Next. The bottom of the top is elasticated, which I think makes it more interesting than just a plain top.


You cannot fathom how excited I am about this book. I am a HUGE Sophie Kinsella fan, and I have thought I had read all of her books. I didn't even know this one existed!!! This is also bad because I have read a series of books and not even realised there was one missing but we can work with that. And as you can see it was twenty pence soo... BARGAIN!


This won't be to everyone's taste (the fella didn't seem too keen), but I love it. At the moment I store my rings in just a purple tub with a lid, and I've been looking for a plate/tray to keep them on so I can display them nicely and actually see what is there. I love the floral design on this (I love all things floral if you can't tell) and I think it's going to look really pretty on my window sill with some nice pieces of jewellery on.

Also, not worthy of a full post, but definitely worthy of a mention is this ring. It was one pound from Matalan, reduced from seven, and although I'm not 100% sure what to wear it with or how to feel about it staring at me, I had to get it for the sheer craziness of it.  


So there we go. What do you think of these pieces? What bargains have you bought recently? 

Thank you for reading, it means so much to me!! At 100 followers I'm going to do my first ever giveaway so don't miss out. If you follow my blog, I'll come and follow yours back. We all have to help each other don't we bloggers.

  7. What a bargain with the Sophie Kinsella book. She's my all time favourite author, I've read the most of the shopaholic series but still have to get my hands on her new book :).
