Found any bargains?

Marylou2 Wed 17-Jun-15 19:39:50

Nothing yet.Had a mooch round the bags in Selfridges today.Why do they always appear so much less covetable when someone sticks a sale label on them?

GingerFoxInAT0phat Wed 17-Jun-15 20:19:01

Marylou I find that too and usually end up floating to the new in section.

I was on the Zara website though a few mins ago and it's just shut down whilst they're getting ready for the sale so will hopefully get something for the dcs.

Gonegrey Ooooh, which dresses did you get? Jaeger does v good dresses, and what a bargain!

gonegrey56 Wed 17-Jun-15 20:54:45

Saurus: a gorgeous coral silk dress, and a multi coloured small print shift dress. Sorry, new to Mumsnet and can't (yet) do links. Worth becoming a loyalty member for extra discounts at sale time and free delivery.
Looking at navy blue broderie anglaise dress.... Very tempted oh dear ...I have seen it in store and it is very chic

Saurus72 Wed 17-Jun-15 21:09:39

Yes, Jaeger loyalty card v good. I had £50 of vouchers from the last mailing!

viennahoneymoon Wed 17-Jun-15 21:32:37

That's a good tip about the Jaeger loyalty card, will look into that, thanks... sounds like you got some great bargains, love the look and quality of most items...

Heels. Not geeks

AmberNectarine Thu 18-Jun-15 07:14:33

mystery I've had my eye on those sliders - love my toga boots!

Teal I have neon heels that were £7 from H&M, so i join you in the classy corner!

Carvela flip flops and sliders
Pregnant and uninspired - even by handbags hmm

Zorion Thu 18-Jun-15 09:02:46

I've not done brilliantly for myself, picked up some gorgeous bits for toddler DS in The White Company (sale started yesterday) and even some jeans in Cath Kidston.

For me, had high hopes from the &OtherStories sale but only bought these black scalloped cotton shorts which weren't even reduced.

Also waiting on a liberty sun dress, reduced from £90 to £45 so fingers crossed for a good fit.

Waiting for inspiration to hit!

McQueen tote, in blue, my new work bag. This one:

Almost makes it worth being at work today, a resounding hit with my colleagues.

Stunning bag Apatite

Apatite1 Fri 19-Jun-15 12:22:17

Thanks Amber. I spent most of a boring meeting staring at it yesterday I'm in love with the colour. Now I'm doing it again whilst browsing MN in another tedious meeting

Misslgl88 Fri 19-Jun-15 14:25:04
