Cheap Gold Finds

That January sale is over but not quite yet in Zara.

Earlier today, I was on my usual prancing around the city center. And with my usual is a visit to Zara. (I never really miss a time to check the store TBH). And I happened to be in the sales section. The price board says ALL AT €1.99, AT €7.99, AT €19.99. WOAH! That’s a bargain! But really, that corner was not appealing- it was like a bomb was just dropped there (as it always is). It was a mess and not too many would really think there’s still something good there.

In my thought as well– “Oh!, I’ve gone through all of these pieces before“. “Nah! This is a waste of time for me!” But I still went through the racks, piece by piece- salvaging what could be salvaged. AND, indeed, I found jewels from the mine.

First, this cute floral print V-neck blouse. I suspect that I’ve tried this on before but just didn’t buy it because it was at €29.95. This for €7.99 and it looks good, why not? This would be great for summer.

This is THE jeans. I could not find it online nor in the app.

Next, I have this pair of jeans. A few days ago, I was planning to search for a light washed jeans- maybe from Topshop or Levis (of course from the outlet at Kildare Village). But then, I found these. They are not high-waisted though, which is the trend nowadays but I don’t really mind. I love it as mid-rise and it flatters my “curves”. PS. One of the things I check when purchasing a pair of jeans or pants or any lower garment is if it makes my bum look good then that’s a winner. And this one is a WINNER at €5.99.


Lastly, this flowing coat. To know that one of the big trends this year is a trench, getting one more of it next to my formal-ish one from Hobbs won’t do me harm. I’ve been eyeing this since January. My first try on then, though, was so-so and the price tag was not convincing enough for a purchase. Now, I checked the tag and it’s for €19.99-originally €69.95. When I tried it on now, it’s for me! It’s short. It’s flowy. It’s chic and cool. I love to have it.

There was a long queue of shoppers outside the fitting room that’s why this is the only photo I took in there. I’m wearing here the three lovely-guilt-free pieces I took home with. I’m so happy with them!
