I've come to realise that on the high street it doesn't really matter whether you buy your jewellery - it all tends to have a relatively short life-span in terms of breaking or even being able to retain it's colour! I don't know if any of you have had similar experiences? I only really buy jewellery in sales or from ebay for this very reason.
I went shopping in the torrential rain today and spotted some brilliant bits in the Miss Selfridge Diva jewellery sale. Everything was under £4 in my local store, I could have bought half the rack - but I managed to pick out 3 pieces, which all together cost me just £8! I worked out that I saved myself £18.50 - how good is that?!
I got a body chain (reduced from £10 to £3), a long necklace with multi-coloured crosses and beads on it (£10 to £3) and also a short necklace with a hamsa symbol on it (I think that's what it's called! £6.50 to £2).
Have you picked anything up in the sales recently? I love going through the sales racks when the shops aren't jam-packed. I'd love to know what you guys have picked up recently! Also, what's your favourite of my bargain buys? I think mine is the hamsa necklace - I'm quite into short chained necklaces at the moment! By the way - after just checking the Miss Selfridge website the items I got in store were actually cheaper than the prices online, so it will probably work out cheaper to buy in store!
