i wanted to buy some proper clothes at the weekend, but next was just stuffed with rails and rails of absolute shit :'(
they normally go on for a week or so but tend to get crapper and crapper.
sales never seem to end nowa days, we can thank the internet for that. The were sales BEFORE christmas
I was a bit confused about that.
..it's stuff you wouldn't buy anyway, just cheaper.
it was actually quite funny watching people scurry around the previously-mentioned racks of shit. i think i actually heard a woman tell a (40-ish) man to buy a suit because he'd "bulk up into it".
"You're long overdue a growth spurt!"
there was a whole rack of them and I couldn't help thinking that there's a reason they're in the sales, and that it was a horrible shirt that no one with any sense of style would buy.
I bought it anyway.
there is always a reason items have ended up in the sales.
I bought a tshirt, a jumper, a tie and a trenchcoat that they had to take off the mannequin for me.
*look at the price tag*
*back away slowly*
then you probably needn't hurry too much
i had room for a sofa.
in the Disney Store Sale. That is all
I now have 'Christmas Time - Don't Let the Bells End' by the Darkness, stuck in my head
Except substitute 'Bells' with 'Sales'.
you were in Next
i meant to say american urban apparell & m. i really needed a new pair of skintight gold lame leggings with stars on. LAPTOPS ON STUN!
i just spent £50 on four pairs of pants, they are so hott.
to get brainwashed by the sales. Shovelling basketfuls of clothes to the till regardless of whether they like them/fit/are meant for the opposite sex. Everyone thinks they have a bargain but really they just bring out the mountains of crap they couldn't shift in the summer.
I have tried to avoid the sales as much as possible, but now everyone is back at work detailing how they scrabbled over a horde of 12 year old girls to get the last strippy Bench gilet for 80% off.
Sales will shortly be moving into their second phase. Expect lots of adverts for the New Year, New You type-vibe. Also blue cross sales, everything must go!! etc etc.
I'd suggest a three-pack of knitted cotton boxers from M&S for about £15.
Apart from a coat, and I already got a new one of those.
but it would have made me look like a member of the twang.
in Space NK. THREE of my favourite lip glosses for £15 instead of £45.
Of course - the two other colours could make me look completely anemic and I may never use them, but what the hell it was a bargain!
They've dragged out the real weird stuff like mega-fast-limp plumper and sprays to calm down bruising and hair care products that seemingly haven't been in their stores the whole year.
that you apply to make your lips look bigger.
we also have these for boobies and ankles.
i guess - it's like a temporary collagen boost.
but why would you want fatter ankles?
half price, down from 200 to 100.
Is that 'proper' clothes?
i don't really want formal clothes, just day-to-day stuff. i really need a new pair of trousers..
or maybe Gap? Gap sales are always cheap and they do nice plain stuff suitable for day to day.
that.. would.. involve going into a branch of Gap. which i just can't bring myself to do.
THAT'S ALL. SHUT UP I HATE YOU CLOTHES R GAY
smells of old people.
They've supplied most of my best-wearing clothes, only superceded by M&S in terms of longevity.
Their sales have provided me with nice t-shirts for around the £3.
They're just another high-street store like any other, surely?
from those stupid TV adverts they used to run.
than next. apparently next are the tory-est of all clothes shops. i'm not joking.
i meant next are worse. obv.
i took back that pair of trousers i completely ripped at ATP, that had cost me £15 in america, to some gap in southampton and they let me exchange them for a pair of £45 new ones, without a receipt. Gap ftw.
I don't understand....
i want to use my music vouchers in the sale so i get more for my money.
