Bargain Shopping: Mixing High-street with High-end…

11-Sep-2016

I love a bargain, and I am sure many of you do too. I get just as much of a thrill from raiding a Primark sale rail as I do from splurging at Manolo Blahnik on impractical shoes that I don’t need. Since I have moved into my first ever Carrie Bradshaw apartment in the centre of the city, I have become accustomed to spending my Sunday afternoons wandering around the sale bin’s in many high-street stores. As a blogger & NHS worker, like 90% of the population, I do have to be careful with my money, and as I have a taste for all things Couture, I need to budget! Therefore, I have become accustomed to mixing carefully chosen high-street items with high-fashion designer pieces on a daily basis. Gone are the days where the two didn’t mix, it’s something that has been done for years, but now openly more acceptable. On a recent raid of Primark’s summer sale rails I picked up a few bargain pieces, all priced between £1 to £10, to mix in with my current wardrobe, and I am going to show you how I have styled them up with designer pieces to create looks worthy of an heiress socialite, along with some other highstreet items. Showing you it’s not what you spend or where you shop, it’s all about how you style it…
