Sale Bargains

Apologies if this has been done elsewhere..

What bargains, clothes-wise, have you found in the sales lately?

I've just got back from town where I bought pale cord jeans from Pilot for £11.50 which fit perfectly - I've been looking for some for ages! Also got a trouser suit from New Look - the trousers were £7 and the jacket £12! Had to compromise a bit on the jacket - they only had size tens left and I probably could have done with an eight, but it doesn't look too bad :)

Non-clothes wise, I bought a Johnson's Holiday Sun gift pack from Boots for £6.66 which I thought was pretty good, included the Body Lotion and Face Tan :)

    I buy 90% of my jeans at a store called Express, cuz they are really the only ones that fit me. They are all around $70-$80 but I buy them in the jeans off season (right after winter) and they have all the good pairs for $29.50. I can't wait.

    Nothing yet in the current sales, nothing that I really like.

    Though my best bargain has to be a gorgeous River Island belt that should've been £35 but was reduced to £3.50 'cause apparantly it had some sharp bits on it. :D

    All the stuff in the shops before Christmas was crap, so there is nothing but crap in the sales now, in my opinion. I've been out twice to two different shopping places, and bought a pair of earings, a necklace and a pair of slippers. So nothing bargainous really.

    They tend to be overpriced and crap to begin with though :/

    Oh god no! :crazyeyes I've still got my Pilot at the moment anyway...

    Hmm, have found nothing particularly nice in the sales so far, except a green sleeveless top from MK One which cost me £4. Too cheap not to nab :D

    [Middle-aged woman alert] but I was in John Lewis the other day and bought the most divine silk dress from Precis Petite. Had originally been £150 and was £30, couldn't believe it.

    Could even use it when (if) I get married, it's that gorgeous and fits perfectly. I'm in love :heart::D

    Other than that, I got nothin'...

    I haven't been proper shopping since last summer, so my wardrobes due a full on top up...

    I'm going shopping on Sunday with my mum - hoping to spend about a ton on clothes. (I get paid soon :love: ) Not really bothered about sales shopping because it's usually all the crap that people didn't want to pay full price for before christmas!!!
