Sales shopping finds.

When I went to see what the what the sales had to offer I never expected to find so many things that I couldn't leave behind since I try to be quite restrictive in what I decide to purchase.

new buys

At Bianco I found a lovely navy, and simple bow hairband (not shown well on the picture) that was too cute to pass up.
Then I went to Accessorize, where there were also lots of pretty things on sale. Pretty underwear, tights, and adorable hair pieces. Thinking about it, I always tend to buy underwear from Accessorize whenever there is a sale, and tights are the one thing I always feel compelled to buy since I wear them so much.

red lace up shoes

The shoes I probably would not have bought had I not in the last minute decided to check out a shoe shop that was closing down. I simply could not leave either of these pairs behind. Both of them have such beautiful color and are so easy to walk in, I adore the heels and the buckle on the brown pair and the red ones are so striking (I was just a bit hesitant about the wedge), and I'm really looking forward to wearing them when it gets less slippery outside! It also doesn't hurt that they were about 70 percent off.

Have you done any sales shopping yet?

Nice finds! I love the wedges :) I haven't attempted the sales this year. I'm pretty broke so it's probably for the best!

i don't blame you -- these are awesome finds. i would not have left the red wedges, either.

as for me, i've intentionally stayed out of all department stores. i spent new year's eve purging my closet and do not want to accumulate things so soon after the clean-out.

It's crazy, but I usually don't do any shopping at all during sales! Probably because I don't live in a big city and here I have only a couple stores to check!

The brown shoes are marvellous!!

Those red shoes are lovely! The only sale item I bought was a leather bag off ASOS, but it was only reduced from £65 to £50, but I really liked it. I'm not one for sales though, I used to always waste my money on 'bargains', only to regret it and never use them.

Daisy said...

Really love those shoes ! The colours and heals are just perfect ! Tights are always good to buy..i am the same, I always wear them!

Emily said...

You really found some great things! I like those red wedges and can't wait to what you wear them with. I checked out the sales at H&M a week or so ago, but didn't see too much I liked which ended up being a good thing for my wallet. ;)

Joanna M said...

Love, Love you recent buys!
As for me the sales are alright but nothing as attracted me to the point of splurging like a maniac (I can't really splurge but if I could I wouldn't..)
Love!
