New Clothes - Absolute Bargains!

It's been almost a week since my last post, but in my defense I have been busy finishing off my Secret Santa Swap makes. I'm finished them now so service can resume!

This week I have been buying lots of new clothes, some for myself and some for my daughters.

Don't get me wrong mind you I haven't come over all extravagant, everything I bought cost the huge amount of £2 per item!

Matalan's clearance stores currently have a huge sale of winter 2009 and summer 2010 stock items all costing £2 or less. It is only in their clearance stores, but I am lucky enough to have one just down the road from where I work in Gateshead and another in Sunderland where my mam lives.

Below are just some of the bargains that I bagged.
I don't really like this on the hanger, but I thought that for £2 it would "do" for work, however when I got it home and tried it on it looks great and I love it! Just goes to show how rubbish I am at choosing clothes for myself!

This is another one for me - a quirky shaped waistcoat type thingy! I love the way this hangs when it is on and  will probably wear this with one of my long black skirts.

Just a basic lace edged cami - I've been needing something like this for some time as I've got quite a few tops that just need a little something under them. (I won't be wearing it on it's own as I hate the tops of my arms.)

A pair of distressed Falmers jeans - I am at my most comfortable in jeans and have quite a few pairs, but at £2 a pair another couple won't come in wrong! (I bought two of these one size 14 and one size 16 as I fluctuate between the two sizes depending how "good" I've been. I also got two pairs in size 8 and gave one each to youngest and middle daughters)

A mini dress for my middle daughter - this is going away as a Christmas present. She will probably wear it over skinny jeans or leggings with either pumps or boots. (Ignore the peeling paint on the door!)

This little halter neck dress has a boned corset type bodice and is for my youngest daughter. She will be getting this straight away as I bought a similar dress for the middle daughter earlier in the week (Also in £2 sale) but gave it straight to her so I didn't get a photo. (Thought they might need them for pre Christmas nights out.)

Another pair of Falmers jeans - this time as a Christmas present for youngest daughter.

And finally a top also as a Christmas present for youngest daughter.

(Now just in case you're all thinking what about her poor eldest daughter? she is very very fussy about her clothes. She is a goth and will only wear black or purple and it would need to be a certain style - Matalan unfortunately doesn't cater for the type of clothes she goes for.)

The lady on the till at Matalan yesterday said they have loads more stock waiting to go out, so I might just have to go and have another look around!
