Some Sale Finds

I love a bargain and rarely buy any clothes full price. I hadn't picked up much since the sales started back on Boxing Day but I normally find that I they get better a week or two after the everyone gets back to work/school. I went to Glasgow this week and had a successful shopping trip. I had nipped into town yesterday just for something to do on my day off and ended buying a few things in the sale. I love watching sale hauls on you tube but I really, really hate the sound of my voice recorded (Doesn't everyone?). I thought I would out an outfit together of my some recent sale finds. 
 Coat - Topshop 
Jumper - Dorothy Perkins 
Skirt - M&S 
Shoes - Clarks 
Necklace - Dorothy Perkins 
I had spotted this coat online and fell in love but I always need to try coats on so I kept obsessively checking the in store store until I could get to Glasgow and hunt it down. It looked more purple online but I really love the shade anyway. It was £35 reduced from around the £60. I have missed having coloured coats and jackets in my wardrobe. Also let's just ignore the fact that it is the same colour as the carpet!

I like hearts and statement necklaces. I am sure I spotted this necklace before and liked it but just hadn't seen it cheap it enough for my liking. When I saw it was down to £1.50 from £6.50 I grabbed it. 

I am very much a dog person, but cats seem to more popular for cute prints. I first saw this online and did like it but didn't think it would suit me. I really like the simple design, it's not too obviously that it's even a cat until you look closer.  I found it in my size in store, it was tried on then swiftly purchased. It was £22 reduced to £10.

There's been alot of things that i've been liking from M&S the past few months. I'm sure this is a redesign of a very similar purple pattern from summer but I like it all the same. It was £29.50 down to a much more reasonable £8.99.

I got these shoes in the sale before Christmas. I had my eye on some patent burgundy brogues but they didn't fit quite right. I have too many pairs of brogues anyway. I tried these on and felt so much better, they've got built in foot cushions! They still need insoles as I always find my feet slide about inside shoes when I wear tights. I am not sure how what the full price of these but probably around the £60 mark at least. I got these at £39.99, my mum kindly went halfers for part of my Christmas.

What have your sale finds been? 


  1. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't been sales shopping at all this season.
    I do love those shoes!

  2. Being a cat person myself, the first thing I saw on this post was your cute top! Aw, it's so sweet! I spotted that coat in topshop too and i grabbed it as soon as i saw it! But sadly, it didn't suit me :-( It looks lovely on you, i love the colour of it! x

  3. Eeee, the cat top! How fun! And then I squealed over the necklace as well I must admit. Ya gotta love a good sale. I've been finding a lot of good deals in Chinatown, personally.
