I’m on a very tight budget as a single parent to my ever-growing, and ever-eating toddler, so it’s rare I ever buy things for myself these days, which is why I adore sales!
During a lunch break, I popped into Sainsbury’s with a colleague, and noticed they still had some remnants from their January sales. I avoided the sales this year, because I cannot be doing with big crowds and a screaming toddler, so this was a lovely surprise!
There was only half a clothes rail of sale items left, which is why my bargain was so easy to spot. It’s one of them items where you can’t tell from looking at it on the hanger whether it will suit you or not, but I spotted it had inbuilt tummy control, so headed straight to the changing rooms!
After much squeezing, tuggy and gasps, I managed to get it on (and then realised it’s a size lower than I currently am!) and was very pleased with the results.
The dress is from the Gok Wan ‘Gok for Tu’ range, and I love how there is ruffling around the stomach to make
it less obvious (but yes I know it is still evidently there!) and there are even tiny shoulder pads which help balance out my body shape.
I’m still nowhere near confident enough to wear a short dress with my chunky thighs on show, but I think it will look gorgeous with some black leggings.
So how much of a bargain did I get I hear you ask… It was reduced from £35 to £10.50, which I think is pretty impressive!
Have you found a great bargain recently? If so, contact me and let me know!
