As the very first thing, please forgive me terrible pun in the headline. But now to the outfit: When I was last at the Simply Be store in the Manchester Arndale Center I was looking for a top to go with the polka dot skirt from Castaluna. Both are featured in my last outfit post. Before I went I gave myself one promise, this time, I would buy nothing else but the one shirt.
How to expect… I broke my promise
However, I am me and like it was to expect, I broke my promise as I came across this beauty: So, obviously I could not resist. And once again I walked out of the shop not only with the see through daisy shirt for my last post , but also with the above shirt with peter pan collar and a beautiful key print. However due to that I now I had the same “problem” again, only the other way round. Now I had a shirt that needed a great skirt or trousers to go with. Well… “needed”…
A true bargain
When I received the skirt I was quite impressed. It is a great quality and at this price an absolute bargain. At the time of me writing this it is still available in the sizes 20 and 24-28.
I combined the skirt and the top with my trusty black wedge heels which I bought off Deichmann ages ago and still absolutely love. And I also added my £10 satchel from Tesco, which I also bought a while back. This bag really does not look like a £10 pound bag, even if the true quality is not the best. But if you don’t expect it to last you for the next decade it is still a great bag. All in all this whole outfit is quite a bargain: it came at the price of approximately only 70 pound in total (and that is including the shoes & bag)
Shirt: Simply be – £14 (available here)
Leather Skirt: Asos – £34 (available here)
Shoes: Deichmann – ca £20
Bag: Tesco – £10 I love stumbling over little bargains like the largely reduced skirt or even the cheap Tesco bag that did not look like a cheap supermarket bag. What was your favourite fashion bargain? Do you have a secret tip where to find them? I would love to hear from you.
