Would you like to admire my bargains? I am v impressed with myself but not insensitive to credit crunch, so not being flash, just happy becuase I have not had new clothes for ages

Oh Ruby sounds like you had a fab day . Glad you were able to get so many bargains. It is lovely to find more expensive items for the same or less as you pay for run of the mill stuff. And sounds like you were well overdue for a treat.

About the "trying things on and hanging on nice wooden hangers"........I do this with my new purchases too. Re-arrange my entire wardrobe/cupboards. And if I have new shoes or jewellery, I will wear them the entire evening after the shopping expedition.....with my pj's!! I just sit there admiring them all

Which outlet store did you go to? I keep meaning to get over to Bicester Village but its quite a trek from here and you can't always guarantee you will find something.

With them being Coast, Fatface and Phase 8 wouldn't you be better ebaying them rather than returning them as they wree such bargains? I would end up keeping them all because I have no self control....once I've brought them home it's hard to release them back into the wild!

Oh well done.

I live miles and miles from any factory outlets, so usually visited them when on holiday but have dh and the dc in tow and its not quite the same as being able to have a good search by yourself envy
