I started at Marks and Spencer as I had some vouchers and managed to pick up a skirt to replace my body con one. Again it is quite tight but it comes down to my knees so not as revealing. It has a textured pattern (crinkled material effect) and was reduced from £25 to £15 so I have some money left over from my vouchers - bonus!
I also had vouchers for New Look and went hunting in their sale. I found some dresses which can be formal and casual, they are a soft material and the two I bought are a purple and green shade. I can't find the exact dress on the website but this I did find the Petite version of it in an orange colour. I paid £11 for my dresses each, they used to be £19.99 (still a great price). They also both came with a black belt with a gold rectangle as a buckle.
On that same shopping trip I picked up a cardigan from Select (I can't find it online), it is more of a structured cardigan and has a bobbly texture with a few sequins sewn in at various points so it shimmers. I thought this would look good for nights or meals out as it is a little smarter and fancier than other cardigans I have.
On another trip I mananged to pick up two more dresses which are longer and can be worn with tights or on their own in the summer. Both were £10 and from a shop in my local shopping centre. I wanted a black dress to replace another shorter one I have and I liked the colour and pattern of the other dress as it goes away from my normal black/plain attire and they are both soft and smooth.
In another local shop I also picked up some bits that weren't necessary on my list, but I couldn't resist picking them up. The black top is perfect for going out and offers extra texture to an all black outfit, it has a plain black material on the back but I am happy with that. This was reduced to £9.99. The grey jumper was also reduced to £9.99. It is an over-sized slouchy soft jumper with pretty lace-like detailing on the chest area.
I also picked up a clutch from Accessorise, which was reduced to £7.50. I was looking for a statement clutch that would brighten up/add something to a black outfit which I do tend to go for for night outs. I saw some lovely ones in Coast (and ideally I was looking for a box/hard clutch) but they were still expensive so when I saw this one it was more subtle but still what I was looking for.
I also picked up some body butters in the Body Shop sale as they were £5 each. greatly reduced from their usual £13. I picked up 2 of the Papaya, as I love this one and then also thought I would try Vanilla Bliss and Passion fruit.
Have you ventured into the sales and picked up some good finds?
