Shoes: Kurt Geiger
I’m sure you all remember the grey t-shirt dress from Topshop which was doing the rounds on blogs a couple of months ago. I loved the dress at the time and even tried it on in the shop, but I was reluctant to pay nearly £30 for what is a very basic dress. I’m very glad I didn’t end up buying it as when I was in Primark recently I spotted this very similar dress for a mere £3. Yes, £3! As well as this grey dress, I picked up a black and white striped version too (which, for some reason, cost £8 instead – I would really like to know the logic behind Primark’s pricing system…) as they are perfect summer dresses but will also be great for layering with leggings and cardigans if the weather’s not so great.
The shoes were a bit of a bargain too, I bought them ages ago in the Kurt Geiger sale. They were reduced from about £120 to £30-something. I couldn’t say no! Usually I stick to cheap heels (New Look’s are my favourite, I usually find them really comfy and easy to walk in) as I am the worst at making a huge mess of shoes on a night out, but I really liked these and decided they were too much of a bargain to pass up. I think I might reserve them for ‘occasions’ rather than just normal nights out, hopefully they’ll stay in a better state that way! Or wear them to the pub, like I did with this outfit from a week or two ago, which is a much safer environment for nice shoes than a club!
Have you found any good bargains recently?
