Bargain Belt


One of my bigger ticks is that I do NOT like to feel like I’ve been made a fool or taken advantage of. Who does,right? In my case however If I feel like somebody’s tried to pull the wool over my eyes or anything like it I respond really very strongly. I’ll dwell on it for days. I’ll be outraged, resentful and squirmy; like boundaries have been crossed. Well, that’s because they have been!

I do NOT like to be treated as if I’m stupid – I’m not stupid

But alas! I digress

Few years ago, I got pissed because I bought a very pretty dress from a local boutique that I hadn’t seen before for no less than £80. Sometime later I found a very similar dress in the EXACT SAME print all over the Internet for approximately £30.

Needless to say I was pretty miffed!

Yesterday, I went on a big spend. The seasons are a changing and I was itching for some seasonal updates and variety in my wardrobe. Colours!🌈🌈🌈

What did I do when I got home from my spend? Why, I started scrolling online of course!😆

In amongst my scrolling I stumbled across this circular buckle belt from Warehouse

(https://www.warehouse.co.uk/gb/accessories/belts/leather-round-buckle-belt/034310.html?dwvar_034310_color=77&position=1&cgid=belts)

Circle buckle belts have been a high street hit for what must be about 2 years now(at least as far as I’m aware. I don’t claim to be terribly up to date).

I don’t go in for belts much but I love these. Simple, classic, classy statement

But, Warehouse, £25 for an accessory I’m not very big on is a bit of an ask. So, I looked around…

Warehouse, sorry but £25 for this belt is extortion. Literally, the most expensive I’ve seen on the mid-range high street

People, if you’re loooking for the exact same belt (or near enough) at a drastically lower price you have a variety of options

First, I found this one on Amazon.

(https://www.amazon.co.uk/Womens-leather-belt-arrival-genuine/dp/B0777GJKHX/ref=mp_s_a_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1551434914&sr=8-1-fkmr0&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=circle+buckle+belt+befulare

Love Amazon. So convenient and quick and I dont t strictly need a full basket to justify an order. At £12.09 it’s significantly cheaper than Warehouse’s one. This is the version I myself invested in

Other options include Accsesorize for £15. A pack of two with both silver and gold buckles from BooHoo (currently on sale at £9.80). H&M for £7.99. Pretty Little Thing, £8.  

And a whole heap of other places selling this self same belt for way way less than £25

Dont let Warehouse make a fool of you folks. There are many many other options available to you here

Happy shopping!

 

Much Love
