I'm not particularly big on designer labels, or even high end High Street names, but when I manage to get something at a bargain price that I wouldn't normally splurge out full price on, it gives me a warm and smug feeling!
This week, I've managed to find a lovely item for each of us, so everyone's a winner.
For Ruby I found this pretty ditsy print blue shirt by Autograph, Marks and Sparks. Only £1.25, and in pristine condition. What would it have cost new? Around £15?
For myself I got a Boden denim skirt with red stitching. Absolute bargain at £1.99 and again in beautiful condition. I dread to think how much this would have cost new, and not something I'd have treated myself with.

I've saved the best til last. I'm taking a gamble showing it here because I haven't yet given this to the Old Man. I'm still debating whether to save it for a birthday present. When I say I'm not a designer label freak, that doesn't mean that he isn't. Stemming from when he worked in a swanky menswear boutique while at uni, he's always had a thing for designer labels and luxury brands.
I did a little squeal when I found this Mont Blanc leather wallet in the cabinet of a local antiques and collectibles shop. It will complement his Mont Blanc pen perfectly.
At £15 it may sound a lot to spend on a second-hand wallet, but not when you consider that these cost hundreds. It has a small indentation mark on the front, but doesn't look like it's ever been used. What do you think, should I surprise him now with it, or save it for his birthday?
