So it should be no surprise to you, that when I was let loose to shop on Oxford Street last Monday morning, I went a wee bit mad on the old jewellry front. Not,(blessedly), in Harrods or even Harvey Nicks, but in lowly, Irish born and bred, Primark (code name Prada), H&M and Uniqlo. Be still my beating heart, because when my eye fell upon these little beauties, I found myself actually shaking with excitement...shaking, I tell you!
IRL, I'm utterly rubbish at playing it cool. If someone says, 'Oooooh, I love your bag! Where'd you get it?'
Instead of calmly purring 'Oh this old thing? London, darling!', I gush excitedly and tell the truth. 'Marksie's sale, £80 down to (silent drumroll in my head) £20!'
Given that tendency to overshare, I just HAD to show you my newest little trinkets.... and I won't even make you guess the prices! And even though I can't see your face right now, I sincerely hope it's wearing a suitably impressed expression. If its not....I'll just pretend it is! Brace yourself for a blingtastic Thursday....
|Prada £8 (necklace) £3.50 (ring)|
|Orla Kiely for Uniqlo scarf -£9.99|
Proving you can't win 'em all...my £1.50 purple knuckle duster bit the dust on it's first outing...ah well!
|All that glitters....|
