It started pouring with rain when I was out on my lunch break today so on my way back to the office I popped into Peacocks to cheer myself up due to the fact my hair now resembledÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â a disasterous cockscrew perm,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â given it’s ability to curl crazily at the slightest hint of any moisture in the air. I love Peacocks, it’s cheap and ok, it’s not exactley as fashion forward as Topshop, but if you have a little rummage you can find some amazing bargins. Today was my lucky day.
I’ve been afterÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â a Balenciaga style blazer for ages after repeatedlyÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â seeing THE jacket of the season over and over again in magazines. Loads of copies started appearing in shops but one of the best, and most affordable, was the Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£20 dark blue blazer from Peacocks. Obvioously it sold out straight away and every time I went in to have a look they were either all gone or there were none that fitted me. I pretty much gave up hope of getting one, after all it’s been about a month now since they first came in.
Then IÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â went into Peacocks today, and behold, thereÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â was a beautiful dark blue blazer with nice gold buttons in all its glory. And yes! there was one left in my size too. Who cares about the rain now – I have THE jacket! I had a little look around the rest of the shop but to be honest I was more excited about getting back to the office and showing it off.
But wait, it gets better. When IÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â went to pay for it IÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â was politely informed by the sales assisstant that it has now gone down to Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£10. So it’s not just a blazer, it’s a bargin blazer.
Definitely made my lunchtime a whole lot better.
