Oh dear the John Lewis fascination continues.... and a nice little ebay dress from a fellow blogger

I had decided that today would be all about sitting on the Laptop, catching up with Blogs, Twitter and online "window" shopping. I thought I would have a quick peek at John Lewis and thought I would check out the special offer section which is basicially a mid season sale. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this silk Planet colour block dress which was £139 then £99 then £49 and now, drumroll please, only £29!!!! Jesus, you can't get one in New Look for that! I mean, it would have been rude for me not to buy it at that price wouldn't it?

After paying that for a Planet dress, £29 for a Hobbs t-shirt seemed a bit much, LOL, but I wanted this a while back and it was originally £39 so at least I have saved a tenner. The main reason I bought this is because I am fed up with bobbling on my Jigsaw new season knitwear grrr (even the bloody cashmere), so wanted a long sleeve t-shirt. Nothing special, just another wardrobe basic.

The thing is, the Planet dress isn't even in the sale on the Planet website and the Hobbs t-shirt has the same reduction on its own site, but of course the beauty with John Lewis is delivery is free or you can pick up instore if you live near one! So I really think it has taken over from the House of Fraser website for me, which has a lot of Lipsy and Therapy etc, All Hail JL!

I had never really looked at the online shoe selection before, but I know 3 girls (aka the daughters) who would all love these shoes by Carvela, reduced to £69 they are totally wicked, I love them, they do them in black leather too, but unless you are a size 3 or an 8, you are out of luck my friends! I may own a pair of Louboutins but I am in love with these babies.... what a gorgeous colour....

I would also like to take this opportunity of pointing out a really lovely little brand new dress that a fellow blogger has put on ebay. It is an Xtra Small so if you are that size, then get bidding as it is a super little number by Trashy Diva which originally cost $195 and has a starting bid of £9.99. You could wear in all seasons, with tights and boots in winter and with sandals for summer. I know a lot of you thrifters and ebayers will love this and I didn't want you to miss out, you can bid here.


  1. Go buy that color block dress... it's a steal and I can imagine you wearing it already.

  2. Wow, what a stupendous bargain on the Planet dress, that is a fab buy indeed! Free delivery too from John Lewis, thats excellent!

  3. I love that dress the colour block one I would love to be able to wear grey it drains me. I also love the shoes the colour is gorgeous.
    I have done far too much internet shopping that I am putting a self imposed block in it for the rest of the month I need nothing I want everything !!! xxx

  4. Love the dress & tshirt (most of my white T's are from hobbs - I find they are longer in the body and seem to wash well). However, those shoes....those shoes. Wonder if Kurt Geiger have them on sale? Perhaps a little trip into Leeds early next week......

    I dare not add up everything I have bought, sorry invested in this year but think it may be time to take stock and get on ebay myself.

    Hmmmmm got me thinking.

  5. I had no idea JL had such a good selection of clothes on their site. I usually buy just the boring kitchen and garden stuff from them...must look & see! Love the colour block dress and the shoes, if only I could wear something that high. xx

  6. Oooh, that silk Planet dress is a TOTAL bargain, and I NEED those shoes as well! Gorgeous things x


Let me know your thoughts, all comments are much appreciated, I know it takes time and effort xx
