Haul From the Past Week & Bargain of the Year!

Over the past week of so, various mini shopping trips have occured, whether it be quickly before work, or before going to lunch with my boyfriend on Sunday, or online but I've managed to grab a few nice things.

Bangle, £2.50
Cream Earrings, £2/£2.50
Gold heart ring and stud set, £1
All Primark
Maxi Dress, Republic, £26.99

Maxi dress, Miss Selfridge, £30

Cream tunic dress (same as the black one from my last haul), Next, £45

And saving the best until last...

I popped into French Connection just to have a look to see if they had any nice dresses in as possibilities for my birthday dress. It turned out all their dresses (apart from new season ones) were reduced to £45. I took four to the changing rooms, without looking at the was prices. I tried one on and I automatically liked it, so I took it off and tried the rest, which I didn't like, so I decided to get just the one. Then to my greatest shock/excitement, I looked at the was price. Was £230. OMG!

Bargain or what?!

Whilst at the til I mentioned to the girl what a great bargain it was and she said that this week they were having a bargain bonanza, and they had slashed all the sale prices to £45, then as of Monday they go back up to their original sale prices again. I can't remember what the sale price of my dress was, and they take the price tags off in French Connection when you pay, so I couldn't even find out, unless it's on the website. But lucky or what?

Here is the dress in its full glory...

Beaded dress, French Connection, was £230, now £45 (for a limited time only!)

I know it doesn't look that special on the hanger, and just looks like an oversized t-shirt, but once it's on a body, it clings nicely round the bottom area, and is looser around the top, which is a sheer see-through material, but with all the beading and sequins, the fact that it is see-through isn't noticeable.

When I get a chance, I'll put it on and take a picture for you, so you can see what I mean.

I'm not sure if it's going to be what I wear for my birthday yet, because knowing me I will see something else I want!
