Sophie's Style: In these pictures I am wearing a grey lace top from Zara, black trousers bought from the Avoca sale rail for €10 (down from almost €100 as they needed a repair) and my big splashout - brown suade boots from T K Maxx (bought in the summertime and stored away fro Christmas). My necklace is last years, but still in fashion. This is a really comfortable outfit.
Rachel's Style: I'm wearing black velvet jeans from Zara last year, black shoe boots from New Look in September and a black lace top, with a really nice lacey back feature from Oasis last year. My belt came free with a pair of trousers. All of these were just sitting in my wardrobe and I put them together as a new outfit.
Firstly, we bought our jackets at Bershka's Summer sale and stored them away until Christmas. The grey jacket is leather and cost only €50. The black jacket is faux leather and cost a lot less, but looks very good for the price.
On a very tight budget, we set ourselves targets pricewise when we went shopping.
Rachel's lacey top is from Awear and cost €17.50. It is worn over a black and grey dress worn Christmas 2009 and gave the dress a whole new lease of life. Her tights are from New Look, as are her cute little lace up shoes. Her pink and grey heart scarf cost €5 at the Mingle Market.
For a closer look at the details:
Sophie's dress is one of several we bought from the sale rail in Awear. It cost €25. It is a nice day dress with an open back detail, so it needs a top underneath. Sophie wore a black lacey top she already had. The dress also looks nice with a long sleeve black lace top underneath. On another day she wore a brown cardigan from Zara over the dress, which really picked up the colour of her boots. The dress has a nice bow detail.
Again, a closer look at the details
Everybody says Sophie's boots are like Julia Roberts' boots in the movie Pretty Woman!!!
Now we want to watch the movie!!
Hope our blog inspires you to pick up a few bargains from the end of the sales and put them together with a few clothes you already have - to create new outfits that don't break the bank this new year.
