dd went yesterday and came home with a nice pair of chestnut brown ugg stylee boots for eight pounds.
the boots and shoes are really a bargain if you only want a seasons wear.

Mac-in-a-sacs. About a tenner, surprisingly nice.

I got some great soft PJ bottoms at the weekend, plus a tonne of shape underwear. A friend bought a fab berry coloured biker - it had a fur collar which we detatched and it looked FAR better... only £25..

Right, am here in the shop. Have picked up a pair of black super skinny but they have none in my size in the coloured ones! Bah! Thanks for the tips, keep them coming as going to have a good hunt!

Also bought £11 skinny jeans in Teal and a pair in Olive. Lovely....

Long stretchy vest for layering.

Also got a nice sheer shirt the other week.

Yes to scarves too.

And high waisted skinnies.

Pjs are sometimes decent.
Knickers / lacy lingerie
Always worth a scout around the shoes, although real finds are rare

Im at the T shirt section. Bargainous! Now on a mission to layer....

Just picked up the berry biker jacket. Fur trim pretty dire but remove offending trim and it turns into something completely different!

Can"t see the blog. Please could you link? smile

Bought some argan hair oil in there for £2.50 at the weekend. It's had mixed reviews on here before, but I thought it was AMAZING, my hair is so soft and shiny! Definitely worth a try!
