Is it just me or is it absolutely impossible to go in to a Penneys store without spending a small fortune?! 😜 While I was in Waterford yesterday I popped in as they always have a much better selection of shoes and clothes and the latest cosmetics, compared to my local Wexford store. The sale has also started in Penneys so I got some bargains too – a win win all round I think 😉👍🏼😂
First of all, I picked up this smock dress which will be so handy to wear to work or when the sun (hopefully) comes back out! I like that it has sleeves because I’m not fond of my arms and I think the colour works well on brunettes too. It features embellishment and the trendy criss cross tie detail on the chest too. This was half price, so it was €14 and I got it for €7.
Also from the sale was the playsuit that I featured in a ‘Recreate the Look’ post recently which you can catch here. I love the print of this playsuit, again a great colour for brunettes and would bring you into the autumn over tights 👍🏼 It was originally €14 but I picked it up yesterday for just €7 – even if I don’t get much wear out of it this summer, that was too good a bargain to pass up!
I spotted this little top near the tills. It’s pretty basic but has the bell sleeves which are big at the moment, very 70’s inspired. It came in black and white also but I went with this nudey pink colour because I have to force myself to stop wearing black clothes 😜😂 They were €8 and are new in stock.
I love the Penneys false nails for a quick fix, like they’re only €1.50 and look so natural on, the amount of people that have mistaken mine for gel nails is unreal. Now, they’re €1.50 so don’t expect them to last all week long but sure they do the job for a night out or a little pick me up 🙊 I worn the nude and red block colour ones a couple of times before but it was my first time to get the French manicure finish. I have them on me right now and they’re gorgeous, I love the stiletto shape and they’re not too long, very manageable!
I had been meaning to get one of these make up brush cleaning eggs for a while now. It was also just €1.50 and pops onto your ring and middle fingers while you’re washing your brushes. I tried it out yesterday with some of the Real Techniques brush cleaning solution on the egg. You wet your brush in warm water and work the product into it on the egg. For me, it’s just a little gadget for handiness because I used to always have to work the brush and product into the palm of my hand and if I needed to wash all of my brushes, my hand would be red raw by the end of it all! 🙈 This was a great buy and again, an absolute bargain so keep an eye out for them around the cosmetics in Penneys.
Next was this dainty two circle necklace that the lovely Bernadine from Sweet Style Wise has been raving about on Snapchat this week, ha ha! My sister spotted them in store and we got one each – they’re identical to the ones that a lot of celebs and Instagram It Gals have been spotted wearing lately and the best part is that it was only €2, not €20!!! For the amount of wear you’ll get out of something like this, I would personally go with the €2 option and they come in a silver finish in Penneys too so theres one for every taste!
I also picked up a few essentials, nothing to write home about 😜 If you have the head on you to root through the sale, unlike me, there are some great bargains to be had at Penneys! Let me know if you pick up anything on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat – holychic_blog 👻
