I haven't been very impressed with what is in the sales, even my beloved Net-a-Porter has not had the items I want at a bargain price. Believe me I've checked top and bottom and nothing has grabbed me and made me drool. I gotta really love/need/want something if I re-stock my already heaving wardrobe.
So onto my first snow bargain - it was quite by accident, I was trying to get hold of some Hello Kitty Snow boots for Curly Haired Beauty that I had seen on the Marks and Spencer's website but the only pair left in the store were too small.
By chance hanging next door, were a pair of bright pink and black snow boots that I thought looked really cool and were in my size. I didn't care these were in the Children's section I just needed to have these in my life - practical but funky. The pink ones have sold out now but if you have small feet they are still for sale here for £18! They are very comfy and they have great grip (better than Ugg's) when walking over icy pavements and my feet stayed perfectly dried when all the snow turned to slush.
I know I should have probably invested in some Snow Joggers but well I really didn't really want to spend the money on something that I would wear occasionally in very bad weather (really how often do we get snowed in here mmmm its already happened twice in 2010). I had the old adage "buy cheap, buy twice" ring in my ears but..... well you decide.
Although when we were in the depths of the wintry weather a pair of these looked very tempting. You can't beat a classic - channelling Abba's Agnetha off-piste look...
