Yes I admit that I am inflicted with guilty feelings for the reason that I have bought a lot of clothes but I console myself that this is the best and ideal time of the season when one can find items at good bargain prices. The three main reasons being:
1. Fashion Outlets want to get rid of their stock, so as to stock on new collections. Therefore prices are slashed up to 70% or more;
2. Only few pieces of each style remain, the only problem and probability is that you would not find your size. The thrill of it is when only one piece of the style remain and amazingly it is your size, and the price is very enticing;
3. More so most fashion outlets, would put in sale items from previous collections at ridiculous prices. Maybe one would be lucky to find a thing that you missed buying for various reasons, last season, that you were still regretting not buying.
I bought this faux fur vest for only 11 euros from Peacocks. Mango have a very similar one in their new Autumn/Winter collection.

Platform shoes will also be in fashion next season so I could not resist not to buy one. I found this red pair of platform shoes from Parfois @ 10euros. Most of all what I love about this shoes is its receding platform and definitely the colour.

Leather (whether real or faux) pieces are still in fashion for this fall and winter. I got this faux leather jacket @ just 17 euros. Love its army shoulder pads style.

I bought this leopard print cardigan which I can't wait to wear this Autumn from Peacocks @70% sale for just 10 euros.
I love makeup even though I am not very good at putting it on. I purchased this smokey eyes set from Catrice. At the back of the case it also includes four simple instructions of how to obtain this look (for more info about their products visit their website). Will definitely let you know about the result!!
2/8/2013 - Shoes, shoes and more shoes
Can a women ever have enough shoes!! No and if it's just for a merely 10 euros the answer is even more NO!! The black and beige flat ones (the former 20 euros and the latter 24 euros) are from Aldo. The turquoise one (10 euros) is from a local shop. It was ♥ at first sight.
1/8/2013 - Purchase from ALDO and New Look
More often than not during sales a lot of shops put on display clothes, items and accessories from previous collections/stock. In fact I am always on the lookout for such items as you can always find a good bargain like these three pair of tights on sale all for just 12 euros from New Look (from their last A/W collection)and a pair of belts from ALDO for just 6 euros. Definitely a Bargain !!
17/7/2013 - Purchase from SuiteBlanco
Yesterday I purchased a real leather fringe shorts from Suite Blanco @ half price (23 Euros) and this Aztec Fringe Jersey also @ half price (16 Euros).
I have already visualized how I would wear these shorts with either a floral shirt or a tunic top for that boho look. What do you think? any other ideas?
