Christmas. What a magical time of year, that should be banned until the 1st of December but isn’t so by the time it’s December 25th you want to shove pine needles in your eyeballs if you have to listen to Slade one more time. Aah, so magical. And expensive.
But don’t worry! A style savvy Santas little helper is here to assist you with making your frankly underwhelming Christmas bonus stretch that little bit further.
Still Got Cash to Splash?
If you’re lucky enough to only be slightly tightening your designer belt, here’s a few to-die-for discounts to charge to the gold card, sweetie.
Forever Unique Embellished Maxi
Look like a beautifully presented gift to fashion in this Forever Unique silver maxi dress with dazzling embellished detail over a sheer fabric. With an RRP of £600 and in the sale for £240, it’s a great bargain waiting to be snapped up if you have the means. And who knows, it could make the work Christmas party the night the hot guy from Accounts finally realises he wants to unwrap you…or maybe that’s just my fantasy. Head over to www.asos.com and select dresses on the Sale tab to find this festive favourite.
Michael Kors Perforated Faux Leather Wallet
This stunning Michael Kors gunmetal wallet is perfect as a generous gift or a treat for yourself. With an original price tag of £105, it’s now half price at £52.50 and I don’t think it’s going to last too long, so click over to www.theoutnet.com and find the Gifts section for more info or to make a purchase. If you’re not familiar with The Outnet I suggest you check it out, Michael Kors’ stuff especially is often featured at spectacularly low prices.
Grey Balenciaga Round-Framed Sunglasses
Winter can be such a depressing time – horizontal rain, inside out umbrellas, wind that could slice your face off. Remember just a few months ago when we could sit and sip cocktails in just a maxi dress, and not be judged for drinking all day because that’s just what people do when it’s hot? Let a loved one relive the (very few) glory days of sunshine with these super cool Balenciaga round framed shades. At £94.38 down from £235.94, this gives you a whopping £60% discount. These too are on www.theoutnet.com , as am I far too often.
Let’s take it down a notch…
So if these items above are each more than your entire budget, I can relate. I promise, there’s bargains out there for you too.
Missguided Optical Illusion Monochrome Maxi
This monochrome maxi dress with split detail is a steal in the sale on www.missguided.co.uk. At £5.49, it’s not much more than you would pay for Vogue, and the illusion patterns means no reason to hold back on those mince pies. Plus, more cash for cocktails! A winner all round! It could be a Christmas do number teamed with towering heels, or even dressed down with the right layering and footwear.
Yeti Claw Ice Scraper
The person that has everything probably doesn’t have an ice scraper shaped like a Yeti hand. Funny and I’m sure necessary at some point, this gift is available from www.amazon.co.uk and is currently a mere £3.67. This could also work great as a silly Secret Santa gift, and it will seem like you paid more than you did!
Sterling Silver and Freshwater Black Pearl Stud Earrings
These gorgeous earrings are made from 925 Sterling Silver and Freshwater Black Pearl, but are on sale on www.amazon.co.uk for an incredible 99p down from £18.00. They also come with a great gift bag so wrap them up and keep schtum about the saving.
So that’s my best discounts of the week. If you’ve got any fabulously frugal finds recently, return the favour and let me know below!
