All Hail ...

... The Bargain queen!


Ladies. Ladies. Ladies. I am fed up of hearing people go on about how much they can’t look as good as they want to because clothes are “too expensive.” Let me point this out, Fashion does not necessarily go hand in hand with cost.
Yes Ladies!
You can dress high-fashion on an extremely low budget. You just need to know the right places to shop.
I spent the day shopping with a given budget of £20
Let’s talk about Goodwill, Vintage  and other stores that sell used clothing. You have to know what you are looking for. I was lucky enough once to find a Moschino bag for £5 at a charity shop. Yes, £5 and YES it is real and was in great shape. A year later and this “everyday” bag is still in MINT condition and has no wear-and-tears.
Get over having any stigma about so-called stores for the poor and focus on finding clothes for your wardrobe at very low prices. You’d be suprised at how a lady who has bought an entire outfit for no more than £20 looks better than the next lady in head to toe designer.
Anything is possible when you are on a budget. It is quite possible for you to have the high fashion wardrobe for little or no money.

    1. I know, you cannot really notice but one foot is lighter than the other as it was on display for a while & so they knocked it all the way down to a tenner. Bargain or what! x

  7. You look amazing, and i'm envious of the prices. What areas are the charity shops you frequent? Sometimes some areas hike prices up and it's just now worth it for second hand anymore. It'd be nice if you could make a list or write up of good pocket friendly yet stylish charity shops and such. would greatly appreciate it.

    1. Heeey, thank you sweetheart. I work around Romford & so always pop in from time to time just to see what's new. Also, I tend to go into a lot of Charity Shops when I am away from the usual eg. Southend - this was where I purchased my Moschino bag (I do no recall the name of the shop. I will take what you've said into consideration & will write up a list of the charity shops I visit when time permits. xx
