Thomas Sabo £26.96
I've been thinking all week about the blazer from my payday wishlist. I didn't buy it months ago when I originally saw it, and when I checked online for it yesterday it had gone from £40 (originally reduced from £90) back up to £63....whyyyy?! This has only made me want it more, so after work Ed and I headed to town in the hope that it wouldn't have been re-priced in store. The nude version was still at £40, but the green colour was £90 again in store - is that even allowed? Again, it wasn't in my size so we went to get the Thomas Sabo charm I'd had my eye on. For some reason the fact that charms have a more sentimental value makes this purchase feel more special and I don't feel guilty about it.
Miss Selfridge - £42
The blazer was still playing on my mind, so I dragged Mum to our local, slightly old fashioned House of Fraser to see if they still had it for £40. No....now they've got loads of stock of it, but all at £90. I seriously debated it and walked around clutching it for a while, but some goodies in Miss Selfridge caught my eye instead and I put it back. I bought a playsuit to wear for a friend's birthday and a new top. There was 20% off and I had a £10 voucher with my Recognition Card if I spent over £50 so all in all I got both items for only £3 more than the playsuit on its own.
Boots - £8.48
Next - £28
The £8.48 in Boots went on some eyelashes which I didn't even end up wearing and a make up remover....which is a necessity so doesn't count. I wandered around the few shops at our local retail park and resisted a bag in Warehouse, then ended up in Next fully expecting not to buy anything. Wrong. I feel in love with a beautiful simple military-style khaki playsuit that's going to be great for Autumn. And am I right in thinking £28 isn't too bad a price for Next? There was a lovely coat rack in TK Maxx with silver stag horns that after walking around with I managed to say no to as well. Maybe I should include things I was strong enough to refuse in here...in which case I made a saving of £70.99 today!
Argh now I think I need that bag from Warehouse! I tried to lure my sister (along with her student card) back there with me but she said no. I'm clinging onto the fact that this is obviously fate telling me it's not meant to be.
