My best bargain buys of 2009


As 2009 draws to a close, I thought I'd reflect on the buys I've blogged about this year and do a little round-up of my favourite (and most bargainous!) purchases. I've chosen my top three because whittling down a top five was tricky, whereas there are three clear winners in my book:
  • My £50 Chie Mihara sale shoes from Whistles* because I've worn them with everything from jeans and leggings to skirts and dresses, plus they are sooo comfortable to walk in
  • My £9.99 Perspex necklace from H&M because it doesn't look like it's from the high street and gets admired every time I wear it
  • My £2.70 vintage satchel from eBay because it's a well-made classic that just so happens to be right on trend for spring/summer 2010, too!
Interestingly, my top trio are all accessories. Which brings me to conclude that you don't always need to have new-season clothes to keep your look current - just pay a little attention to the detail instead. So, why not give your existing wardrobe a lift with a belt here and a scarf there? It's an inexpensive way to stay on trend!

On that thrifty note, let me be the first to wish you a Happy New Year for tomorrow! x x x


(* The Christmas tree was another bargain buy - £5 from B&Q's clearance pile! I just had to give an unwanted tree a home - just because it's missing a few pine needles doesn't mean it can't still look good!)
