Barganista Show & Tell

Voucher Codes asked me if I would like to enter there Barganista Challenge and the prize is 2 VIP tickets to London Fashion Weekend - of course I said yes!

To enter the comp I had to pick my best bargain buys and tell all my secret bargain hunting tip.

Outfit:

Photobucket
Photobucket

Wearing Vintage Levis Denim Shirt (Dads Wardrobe), ASOS Skirt (£10) and Primark Army Boots (£19)

Secret bargain hunting tip:

Shop around - I read lots of magazines each week and I am always in shops just looking at clothes and shoes. When I see something that I like I shop around i'm like a walking talking compare the market.com LOL!
Also look in your parents attic. I just recently found about ten pairs of Levis jeans and shorts that my parents had when they cost around 6 pence (So i'm told!)

Definitely agree with your tip. It's amazing what you can find in your parent's attic. Loving those boots too!

fantastic shirt!

Lillian said...

Ah! I'm so jealous! Unfortunately, my mother is about 3 sized smaller than me so the only thing we can share is belts (they go around her hips, and my waist!) recently we discovered that some items can be adjusted or belted to fit us both, literally a happy medium!

and I've never raided my parents' closet before, but I was thinking that my mom might have some cool vintage jewelry I could snag... I remember seeing a jewelry box full of baubles when I was a kid :)

My mum is so teeny tiny and my dad is so huge, I can never raid their old clothes - which sucks, as they have some awesome stuff!

Good luck, I hope you win!!
I wish my parents had an attic. We've only got one level in our house, so all of my parents' junk is distributed throughout each room of the house, some of it is cool but none of it is fashionable that's for sure, haha.
