Bargain £5 buys

First of all I would like to thankyou all for the lovely birthday messages!!

 A little while ago I purchased a mint green sheer blouse from Ark for £19.99.... a few weeks later I went into a shop in Nottingham ( it was the kind of cheap shop that the clothes are lower quality and everything is like £10) only to find some similar blouses, so I purchased a white one. When I had them together I noticed the exact same label was stitched inside. I was not very impressed that to find that the blouses Ark were selling were available 5 minutes away for half the price!!

After the initial annoyance of finding out I'd wasted £10 more on the Ark blouse, I realised that the Quality of this 'cheap' shop may not be so bad and looked some more. I have since purchased quite a few items from this shop and did so today with my birthday money. I spent a mere £15!!

Bodycon Zip back skirt = £5

Purple dress = was £10 now £5

Green Dress - Was £10 now £5

I fell in love with this dress when I saw it and was very happy to find it was reduced to £5! There were so many on the rails and nobody seemed to be buying any at all so I took one of each colour straight to the changing room, the 8 was okay but as I am quite tall I got the 10 to give it a more respectable length.
Which one do you prefer?
Also if you are in Nottingham the shop is called 'Magenta' and you might find yourself a little steal.
