The Bargain Mac!!

So the other week my Mum was being dragged around local charity shops with my Dad. My Dad always goes in to look at the books and Mum just tags along!! I used to be really funny about going in charity shops and I always thought it was a bit un-cool going in. Now my opinions have totally changed.

Im so glad that on this occasion Mum went in as she found me this little gem:


I'd only been saying to Mum recently that I was struggling to find a cute Mac that was stylish and affordable. Im glad I told her I was looking for one otherwise she probably wouldn't have looked twice at this.
Its originally from River Island. I love that shop and I had been in there regularly looking for a mac. Its my size and its got a gorgeous animal print on the inside of the coat, the same as whats inside a lot of their handbags.



Its also got cute little tie's at the cuffs which is a nice bit of detailing. And the best part is.... it only cost £5.99!!

Bargain!! Thanks Mum!!

I also have to say Thanks to my Dad who says if it wasn't for him going in in the first place, I would never have got it!!

I've now had the coat dry-cleaned and it looks as good as new!! I think im going to have to get rid of my 'inner snob' and go looking in charity shops more often.

As they would say in Sex and the City: One girls trash, is another girls treasure!!

Also a quick reminder that the deadline for my giveaway is tomorrow night at midnight. Thanks to everyone that has already entered so far, the winner will be chosen very soon!!
