What I got in the Sales 2016

I'm not normally the one to find myself a good bargain in the Boxing Day sales, so fast forward three days after the 26th December, I certainly could not be in look of getting myself a sale find. But how wrong was I, a quick afternoon trip to Leeds City Centre and all my Christmas money had been spent, - within an hour as well.


River Island was the place to go for me, I picked up this beautiful sleeveless sheer monochrome shirt with slits in down each side, the print is absolutely gorgeous and is an ombré effect. As it had slits on either side it meant that I could size down, I believe it was around the £12 mark.

The other item I got was this khaki green shirt dress which is perfect to wear for work as it is a mix between smart and casual. I once again had to size down as it was enormous, so I bought it in a size 10. The tie around the waist is perfect to cinch you in at the waist to accentuate curves, however the more you wear it the baggier it does goes - but hey the comfier it gets. 


I was a little disappointed with the sale in Next this year, there didn't seem to be as much on the rails, however this could be down to the fact that the sales started a few days before Christmas. I cannot complain as I picked up three pretty amazing products, the first being these black chunky heeled ankle boots - and yes I do have an obsession! Stepping into the shoe lounge it was as though there was a light shining down on them, they were in my exact size so it was meant to be!

If you know me well you know that my next purchase is something that excites me a lot, hello to a brand new pair of sunglasses to add to my collection. Every girl needs to purchase a new pair to mark a new year, they were only a fiver too so I had to grab them.

Whilst we were queuing to pay I turned out to be one of them people sucked in with the products they put at the side of the queues, but when it turns out to be the cutest pink confetti nail polish priced at £2.50 in the sale, you really cannot say no.
