Over the years I’ve slowly moved away from bargain hunting – these days I have more cash but less time, which means I’m more likely to nip in to my favourite shops and pick out the pieces I like rather than spend hours trawling the sales rails for those elusive reductions.
But bargain hunting is ingrained in me and I still love the thrill of finding something pretty for a great price. Enter the £6 Zara heels…
Six pounds! For these! I wore them with a Zara dress – another sale bargain at £12.99 – and a Topshop khaki vest which I cannot get enough of (sadly that was NOT cheap at £30). They’re rather high – definitely taxi-and-dinner rather than drinks-and-dancing shoes – but the leather is butter soft and I love the cute rounded toes.
The heels were reduced from their original price of £40 and finding them has kickstarted my hunting instinct. Over the last few months I’ve become a bit disillusioned with charity shops (something I wrote about here) but this week I’m getting back into my thrifty ways, thinking about the price and looking for those brilliant bargains.
Have you found any bargains lately? On the high street or second hand?
