Boxing Day Sales!!

So, I decided to brave the sales in town and older son Chris came as well with his Christmas money. It was extremely cold and windy, so my faux fur J for Jasper Conran jacket came in handy, although it didn't keep the cold out completely, haha!! Still, it was only £2 at an East London boot sale a few winters back, so a great bargain indeed!

I had a good look around. I have been after a brown leather across body/shoulder bag for a long while now, vintage or modern but hadn't found anything I liked. I went in Debenhams and found this lovely 'Ibiza' Matthew Williamson for Debenhams bag. It ticks all the boxes-its an all season bag, it will go with a lot of my vintage summer dresses and also my jacket above and its a perfect style and size too.

It was not in the sale, but for £35, a great bargain anyway. Chris did really well, he got Guitar Hero on playstation 3 plus the guitar for half price in HMV, so the boys have been strumming their stuff all afternoon, haha!! I also got a red leopardprint pashmina scarf from my cheap Asian scarf shop in the High Road for only £2, so overall a good day for buys.


Hope you are enjoying the holidays-have you picked up any bargains so far?

You look great for facing a boxing day. Here we have no boxing day, the stores were all closed.
That bag is so nice, darling.

I have definitely not braved the crowds yet, but there are some new designer items at Target that I really want to check out.

What a great find with that bag. I love it!

Hi Asian Cajuns-yes, I've heard target do some great pieces, unfortunately they are not in the UK. Happy bargain hunting!

Hey darling!
I love that bag...it's kind of funky and I know it will go perfectly with your creative style...
Although I have a terrible cold, I was brave enough to get out of the house yesterday and head shoppin downtown. ( we also have boxing day sales in toronto)
It was terrible...There were line ups everywhere...people pushing each other and stuff, clothes and shoes on the floor...ughh....the worst part is that the sales weren't even that great...
I couldn't take it, so I went home without buying anything:(
I'm looking forward to the end of january tho..that's when we have the best sales:)
Have a lovely weekend darling!
Mimi
