Lulu Guinness Pewter Snakeskin Lips Clutch Bag

Bargain of the century alert! Casually strolling I spotted a lips clutch bag in the window of the charity shop. The price wasn't visible, so I walked in and asked (at this point I already spotted "LG"logo on the zipper, so I knew it must be original Lulu Guinness bag) and it turned out it was only £7.99! Can you imagine?! Adrenaline pumping in my veins I returned hour later with cash and ready to pick up my brand new bag! I did some digging on Google and it's Lulu Guinness Pewter Snakeskin Lips Clutch Bag from one of their previous collections. I wanted to have my very own Lulu Guinness lips clutch bag ever since I saw one in Selfridges for the first time... I must admit that this is not *the* shade I'd normally pick up, but for £7.99 it's an amazing bargain and I actually quite like it now - I think it'll go beautifully with any of my little black dresses I have lurking in the closet. I still want to get pink or red some day, but for now I am very happy with my purchase - especially since I never ever get lucky in charity shops! 

What's your latest bargain of the century?

  4. Woo! CONGRATS. What a score!!
    My biggest steal still has to be when I got my Balenciaga Fall 2006 runway dress. It was window sale day at Goodwill on the Upper East Side of NYC and I snatched it up for $100. It's my fashion baby! I wrote about it in this post in 2011: http://www.fandml.com/2011/11/i-got-connects-calypso.html

    Claps for you!

  7. Can't believe you found this in a charity shop, what a bargain! I usually pop in to look at toys for Ellie but never even bother to look at anything else. Next time I'll be sure to spend an extra 5 mins to have a look for myself too x

  19. Dak Prescott had a chance to win his first NFL start as Dallas, down 20-19, took over at their own 20-yard line with 1:04 left on the clock. The drive fell short eight plays later as wideout Terrance Williams caught a pass in Giants territory but failed to get out bounds in time. The failed one-minute drill doesn't entirely take away from a promising debut for Prescott, who opened the game with scoring drives of 15, 15, 11 and seven plays before the cheap sale jerseys offense was forced to punt. The first half for Dallas served as confirmation that this year's Cowboys are very wholesale jerseys shop much in new nike nfl jerseys play to duplicate their 2014 selves with Prescott at the helm. Hitting 25 of 45 passes for 227 yards, the rookie -- picked NFL Jerseys 134 spots behind Jared Goff -- helped Dallas control the NFL Jerseys ball for 22-plus minutes of the first half. Prescott found eight separate targets and looked comfortable directing the offense. He'd jerseys store like a handful of those throws back, but the former Mississippi State star did a commendable job going through his progressions, finding holes in the defense and putting the ball where his targets had a chance to make plays. This loss falls more on a wanting Dallas defense that couldn't get the Giants off the field in the second half.
