Lady Bug Says ... Everyone Loves A Bargain!

Hello Ladies :)
Hope you have all had a good weekend! On Sunday it was my Mum's birthday, so me and my sister decided to take her to Clarks Village for a little bit of discount shopping!
I must say I was pretty impressed with the shops there, mainly Monsoon, Whistles and Next Clearance. Seeing as I am currently abit on the poor side I only bought a few bits from Next as I had a gift card.
Next isn't a place I always think of to look for clothes, but I was seriously impressed with the clothes, and even more impressed with the prices! I thought that as it was a clearance store it would be full of past season items, so was really surprised to find gorgeous nude dresses, embellished tops, gladiator sandals, military inspired pieces and amazing heels!
I walked out with £173 worth of clothes for £19! I am sure you will be seeing these new items in the coming weeks!
Here is my outfit from today.


Heels, Primark (gift from my sister), Trousers, Next Clearance £35 reduced to £3, Grey tshirt, H&M £4, Studded cardigan, Tesco £7, Necklace, Matalan £2

Outfit total - £16

I will leave you with a photo of my favourite flower (gladiola) that is currently growing in my garden :) I am very proud to have grown something so pretty!

  1. Wow, I love the trousers - what a bargain.

    And you should be proud of that gladiola, it's a gorgeous specimen (and it makes me think of Morrissey, which in my little world is a good thing)

  2. Glad you got some great bargains. Next isn't somewhere I'd really look either but will definitely keep it in mind if I ever stumble across an outlet store. The trousers are fab. Pretty flower! x

  10. There's a Next clearance quite close to where I live but I must admit I haven't been there for quite a while. I tend to find their stuff a bit ageing at times but it looks like you got some fab bits. Love those trousers.

  16. I quite like Next, only usually buy in the sales and I only usually buy things nobody else wanted. I have a fear of turning into one of the 'Next mums' at the school gates! Excellent bargain hunting x
