never judge a book by its cover

Today I had an excuse to go shopping! I haven't bought anything for myself since about April as at first I had to save all my money to finish my collection and then I had to save money to move in with the boy.

I had to get a couple of bits of uniform to wear for my new job and after a quick look in all the main shops I had only bought a black t-shirt. I thought all was lost and started to head home but as I was making my way through the shopping centre I passed Internacionale and decided I had nothing to loose by having a quick look. I have always walked straight past this shop and it seemed a bit cheap and tacky but I have been missing out! There are definitely some questionable pieces but the majority of the stock is gorgeous fashion forward pieces in must have
colours and the quality seems great. But I haven't mentioned the best bit... the price!

Dress: Internacionale, Belt: New Look

I cannot believe I found this dress. It is exactly what I was looking for and will be perfect for work. I love the shaping and skater style skirt. It is made of a really thick jersey which means it holds everything in but is still really comfy to wear and it was only £14.99! I found the little patent belt in New Look and think it really finishes on the look.

Blouse: Internacionale, Earrings: BHS

Well this isn't strictly for work but it was such a bargain I had to get it. It is the perfect mustard shade which fits in brilliantly with my last post. It is a cute cropped length and has scalloping on the sleeves and down the button stand. I cannot wait to wear this!

Blouse: Internacionale, Earrings: BHS

I only popped into BHS to have a quickly look at the lingerie and on the way out I spotted the jewellery sale. I had a little look and didn't find that much I liked until these babies caught my eye. They are a lovely old gold colour and feature a stag head. I have an obsession with anything with an animal on it so had to get them! They were marked up at £2 which I thought was a bargain but when they went through the till they were £1! I love it when that happens.

Have you recently discovered any amazing shops or found any amazing bargains lately?

  1. Sounds like a great find. Might have to have a look in Internacionale next time I'm in a town with one. Like you, I always dismiss it without going in.
