Outfit of the Day
This one is from Topshop. It was on sale when I got it last week, and I paid £20 for it. They have some lovely oversized jumpers/cardis in Topshop at the moment, but I can't justify spending £30 on what is often a piece of flimsy material. Or maybe my idea of how much things should cost has become skewed by the cheapness of Primark. My brother thinks so. He said that a tee should cost 'about £12' and a jumper 'about £15'. That settles it then.
I don't know if you can see, but my dress has little cats all over it. I love cats, but I can't get one at the moment as I live in rented accommodation, so I have to make do with catclothes :( I love this dress from H&M. It is very flimsy material, so you have to layer it up to go out in these freezing climes.
Oversized cardi- £20 Topshop sale
Cat print dress- apx £15 H&M (sorry, I don't think they stock it anymore)
Ring (If you look carefully you can see it!) £3 H&M
Necklace- next to nothing, charity shop.
Speaking of rings, in Company magazine recently they offered 50% off of certain rings at the shop Lola Rose. I was really excited about one of them, the Keeley Ring (in yellow specifically). In the magazine it pictured the ring with RRP £43.50 written on it. Now, to me, RRP means the original cost, not cost AFTER reduction. So that would price the ring at about £20 something which I was willing to pay.
Not so. I excitedly went onto the website only to find that they had retailed it at £87 and so the £43.50 WAS the price after reduction. Now I cannot justify spending that much on such a ring and so I didn't get it :(
What does RRP mean people? Recommended Retail Price. So why is it not the retail price eh? Did they purposefully put their prices up? Am I wrong to complain.
*Rant over* I just really liked that ring tis all.
I'll stop waffling for now.
