Hello lovelies!!! So a couple days ago on my Instagram I teased a blog post about my French connection sample sale haul, and here it is! I really love the French connection sample sales, I always come away with some great bargains at ridiculously low prices. I did tell you I was the number bargain hunter out there didn’t I? 😉
My mum and I have been going to the French connection sample sales for about 6 years now, it’s sort of become our own little tradition. We always make a day of it, wake up early so as to avoid the crowds, do our haul and then have a leisurely lunch afterwards, it’s so much fun and we get to spend some quality time together.
I almost always spend way more money than I intend to at these sales simply because everything is so good and I want it all, grrr! This time, I decided to be super disciplined and set a budget for myself before I even left my house. So the budget I set for myself was £100, I figured I’d probably maybe get a couple of nice pieces out of that. I was intending to follow through with that budget, so I withdrew exactly £100 and left my wallet at home so as not to get tempted and end up spending more again, my mum was going to have to buy me lunch;-) My shopping trip actually went a lot better than expected, and guess what? I even had change left over, woohoo yay me!!! So I spent a total of £95 with £5 left over to contribute towards lunch hahaha. I got a total of 11 pieces, 2 going out dresses, 2 tops, 2 pairs of pants, 2 shorts, a skirt, a bag and an iPad case. Not bad at all if I do say so myself.
I got home and decided to have a little fun amateur photoshoot with my slightly unwilling resident photographer, (my mum). Ok totally random thought here, to my fellow bloggers…who takes all your pictures? Do y’all just happen to have professional photographers who go everywhere with you? Lol, please do share I actually really wanna know. Right, back to the sample sale haul, here’s a little visual of what I bought, the pictures aren’t the best quality and I wasn’t exactly all “made up” and stuff, but you know what? Completion over perfection, I knew if I didn’t take these pics there and then I would probably dilly dally and end up not even writing this post, so I’m just gonna go for it! View Full Post
