Next Bargain!

The lovely Marian at House of Style received a lovely jumper from Next for Christmas and her pressie inspired me to go looking in Next in their winter sale. I hadn't been in there in a long time for purchases, it was my main haunt for clothes back in the 80s, particularly jumpers and smart tailored wear, so I was hoping I could nab a bargain.

I came across this jacket/cardigan on sale for £15 and what I like about it is how versatile it can be worn. Here I'm wearing it closed and open with jeans, but I would also wear it with a black bodycon dress and also with smart trousers too.

What bargains did you pick up in the sales this winter, or are you saving the pounds for a summer investment?

Would you believe all the shopping I've done in the past two weeks has been full price. I'm hopeless when it comes to sales. Unless it's thrifting then apparently I'm a tyrant. LOL

Very cool - it has a total Marc Jacobs vibe!

jess said...

Cool jacket. I haven't been clothing shopping in a while. I really want to get some flowery dresses for spring.

Ooh, fab. Hey, that's kind of a big expenditure for you :-)

Meg said...

I live for sale shopping, so I spent all of my shopping allowance on the day after Christmas.

Have a great day!

LaMimi said...

Very lovely jacket, and so versatile. You can wear it with a white dress or LBD, throw in something red in the ensemble and it'll be even more fab! I've got this really hot and comfortable ankle booties for about $ 50 or 20 quid. :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Ladies-thanks for your lovely comments and LaMimi, I'll take the tip of wearing red with this too, thanks!

Make Do Style said...

£15 Sharon Rose - you've gone large! But you wear it well...

Ladies Who Lunch said...

Nice jacket, looks great. I haven't bought anything in Next since the early 90's and I can even remember what it was a pair of gorgeous aubergine colour leather Penny Loafers! Hahah!

Looks best with the front open :D
Hmmm..I did get a pair of funky plastic jewellery for AUS$3.00 from my neighbour who had a garage sale. Pictures soon :D
Not saving at the moment. Hardly much income when one is a student! But definitely keeping an eye out for those op-shops :D Hopefully I'll get a job soon :P

I just took back my "big" sales buy today, as I realised it wasn't quite as perfect as I'd hoped. Maybe I will use the money to save up for something better in Spring!

AsianCajuns said...

Oooohhh, what a great deal! I'd love a jacket like that for work. I wonder if Next ships to the US... You look lovely as always!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi the seeker, nic and asian cajuns-thanks for the great comments!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi couture carrie-thanks my dear!

Karen said...

You must have such a huge wardrobe!
I bought a few basics like underwear over the sales. But I'm not spending another pound until I lose a few holiday pounds. And theyt are stubborn so it may be awhile!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Karen-LOL, not as big as you think!! I'm going to save now for some summer basics.
