You know i'm always one for a bargain, well if you didn't - you will by the end of this post!
One thing which annoys me, when i'm out shopping, is insane mark ups. When one high end shop sell's something with a massive price tag just because you have the privelige of buying it from them. Basically if something is worth £2 a company will then sell it for £10, fashion is one of the biggest industries this is done in and we are letting them.
I don't know about you, but i'd rather put any extra money in my pocket rather than Mr Money Baggs'! There's no brand loyalty in my house as it's just not logical considering most companies don't look after their current customer's and give new customer's the best deal's.
There are numerous blog's which have been created and dedicated for this purpose so if you see something you like you could google it and have a browse to see if there is a cheaper (in price not quality) alternative, check out my latest "The WWW" post to see my favourite's!
It's so easy to do it yourself too, especially if you're like me and you like trawling through lot's of online stores and fashion sites, you soon spot some little trend's and item's which could help you get a fab outfit which look's alot more than it cost's.
Here are a few example's of what I stumbled across, they may not be everyone's "cup of tea" but this is more to show you that there are option's out there:
Station Necklace in Black Resin
House of Harlow $125 (roughly £80)
House of Harlow via Nordstrom £50 (for the leather not resin)
Of course it's not going to be 14k gold from ebay, but it's still a bargain and nobody should be getting that close to see otherwise!
Blue bodycon cage dress
Baroque print (aka scarf print)
Ebay - £5 Leggings
