My Sale Bargain! Love at first sight!

My all time favourite way to get out of the house after Christmas is to hit the sales!  (I have yet to brave London on Boxing day, one year I might but not this one) Instead I headed into Crawley - actually a great place to do a spot of shopping - we have a big new look with an extensive inspire range plus a H&M with a good BIB range, our Evans is OK -a bit small but we just got a branch in BHS too.

Anyway we will be moving house next year sometime so the plan was to be sensible and not come back with too much... thus saving money and wardrobe space!

I could have gone crazy in H&M (they had a gorgeous tassel dress) but I resisted I was a good girl... UNTIL I hit Monsoon that is! This time I bought something sensible though, an investment piece as it were. A beautiful red coat - the minute I put it on I was in love with it! I paid £110 (was £160) which is still very expensive but I got a bit of extra money from work this month so why not eh?!

Anyway on to the pictures. Not great quality - the light was fading fast, but here I am on a day out to Brighton at the Royal Pavilion.
 I love red so much! The colour in this shot is great...
(this coat is ever so slightly tight on the bustline, but hey most things are, I'm not complaining!)
The tunic is from New Look  (Non sale - but I had a voucher, so I decided to go for something a bit different!) The empire line, jersey type fabric and print make it very flattering -plus the length is good, its about the shortest I would go with tights but it looks great with leggings too. The sleeves are also lovely, long with ties at the end, It's a great winter tunic.

Happy Sale shopping Folks! Have you got any good bargains?


  1. That red coat is a gorgeous and you look smashing in it. Won't minde seeing it more. Such a classic piece you can wear for years.

  2. Yes! That coat is very lovely! It pops on you! I brought my first red wool coat this winter! I should have done it a lot sooner!

  3. Very nice :) I definitely agree that a great coat is worth spending money on! Happy 2011!

  4. Gorgeous outfit! I got a few bits in the sales just before Xmas - some of the bits are being returned on Tuesday once normality ensues.

  5. OH MY GOD I love this look. You are totally inspiring to me! wow!
