Mr Price Haul

These are a few things that I bought today. 

Whenever I do a bit of retail therapy I make sure that I sell at least the same amount of items on my vintage clothing store website, Salvage. 
I have already had a bit of a catastrophe with my wardrobe rail collapsing from too many clothes being shoved in so I need to make sure each shopping spree is counteracted with a bit of a sale. 

The first item I chose was the cream and gold Pretty Darling Purse. I adore the seal and how you need to twist it to unlock it. It is spacious enough on the inside for me but I wouldn't recommend it if you have a lot of different cards that you use on a regular basis. 
There are five card compartments which does me fine with my bank card, Mr. Price Account Card, Body Shop Card, Medical Aid Card and Drivers License. 
There are also four other compartments in a different section of the purse but I really struggled to fit my other cards in them, (such as my movie loyalty card and library card). 
There's a small coin pouch as well as two slots to put your notes away (these sections will remain empty for a while now unfortunately!). 
Overall I just thought that this was a really pretty little purse and I was getting bored of my old maroon one anyway. 
Price: This was just R49.99 which in pounds would be £3.55

The second item was this really soft material Floral Dress
It has two baggy pockets and a little zip trailing down the front. It comes up about one hand above the knee.   
I fell in love with this the second I touched it - it really is that soft. 95% polyester and 5% spandex this Summer's dress is comfortable, stretchy, soft and pretty much perfect for the 30 degree days we're experiencing here in South Africa lately. 
I'll be making good use of this that's for sure! 
Wear it purely as a nice beach dress or pair it with some plain leggings. 
I can imagine this item can be really versatile, you could even wear it out to drinks. 
I may be inspired to do a post purely on different ways to wear this actually! If you'd be interested in something like that or something similar then please leave your requests below!
 Price: R69.99 (which in pounds is about £5.00)
I then moved on to the jewelery section and let me just say here that I really haven't enjoyed Mr. Price jewelery for a while now.

I was really impressed by these three items though: 



The Turquoise Cross Earrings caught my attention first and when I saw how reasonably priced they were I just couldn't say no! 
Price: R19.99 (£1.42)

The Black & Silver Peace Ring was my next find.  
Price: R19.99 (£1.42)

Lastly I grabbed the Turquoise Stone Silver Ring.
This is a one size fits all piece and I just loved everything about it, from the stone to the pretty design on the silver around it. 
Price: R29.99 (£2.13)

I'm so happy that I have managed to find a few new pieces of jewelery. I had sold so much through my store that I literally had nothing left in that department! 
Clothing wise though I don't think there will ever be a problem!

Good luck on your next shopping expedition! Let me know what awesome bargains you come across. 

Happy Shopping!
