Bargain Hunting

Lately I was meant to be saving up for university, but I find it impossible not to buy things. I have ZERO willpower.
However, I have been good lately, and going for bargains! The first bargain I got my hands on were these gorgeous L K Bennett pumps, to which you are probably thinking, "How are L K Bennett shoes a bargain?!" but let me let you in on this secret, I got these in an outlet store! 
So yes, they are last season stock but they are gorgeous, and I got them for £20, when they were originally £75! this particular outlet store is located in The Outlet Village in Banbridge, (which also boasts a very good Oasis discount store!) and had so many gorgeous bags reduced very low so it took a lot of effort to only walk out with a pair of shoes.

The next item is a bargain purely because it is a dupe of the most beautiful Zara bag ever, that every blogger I follow has been lusting after! When I was in Zara a few weeks ago I saw one discarded and it had no pricetag, I fell in love and took it to the till only to be told it was £59.99!!! I had to have a sit down after that! But then a week ago I mentioned to my friend who works in Primark who told me they had copies for only £6.99. I had to make a little trip to town straight away then because I needed it so much! I think I'll remove the tassel though, and possibly the strap.

Finally, an actual bargain which was found in my local British Heart Foundation shop and cost a measly £10.99. best bargain yet. I do want to remove the sleeves though because they are a bit puffy when they are on, but it fits me perfectly otherwise.
