Bridesmaid Themed Voucher Codes Continued

Yes, I’m sticking with the bridesmaid theme, but only for another week. Or maybe next week too… Don’t say you haven’t been warned. Anyway, I was going to highlight a few different items again, but I fell down a shoe hole and couldn’t get out again, sorry, although I’m sure you’re not going to complain about the prospect of a whole blog post for of shoes now, are you? Good. So as I mentioned last week, there is a vintage theme to this wedding, but shoe wise, I’m kind of limited with the colour. My dress is navy satin, so I’m sticking with black or navy for the shoes. And peep toes are out of the question because a) it’s winter and I’ll be wearing thick tights and b) it’s winter and I don’t want to get cold toes.

So what have I uncovered? Well, read on and find out…

First up, this Brantano voucher code is rather magnificent as it gets you a whopping 30% off everything until 2nd February, and hidden amongst the many gems are these Emilio Luca X Wide Fit Party Knot Heels, reduced from £28 to £19.60 with the discount. Unfortunately, and it pains me to write this, but they don’t have any left in my size. Gutted. Anyway, onwards and upwards…they’ve also got these Emilio Luca X Stacey Twist Heels, reduced from £26 to £18.20.

Want posh shoes? Check out this Kurt Geiger discount voucher which gets you up to 50% off selected pairs. I’ve found these Lara Carvela Kurt Geiger Heels (were £100, now an amazing £39). And if you can’t find anything in the sale, don’t forget to use the other Kurt Geiger coupon code that gets you 10% of your items when you sign up to their newsletter. Amongst the full price pairs, I uncovered these Atom Carvela Kurt Geiger Heels (reduced from £85 to £76.50 with the discount) and the Clove Miss KG Heels (reduced from £50 to £45 with the discount).

The House of Fraser clearance site is an absolute treasure trove of well, treasure. And you can access it right here. I trawled through hundreds of pairs of shoes to dig up these beauties that fit my brief – the Lotus Dinara Formal Shoes (were £39.99, now £24), the Lotus Holly Casual Shoes (were £59.99, now £36), the Lotus Suzita Casual Shoes (were £55, now £33) and last but not least the Lotus Chantille Formal Shoes (were £65, now £36). (yes, I know they’re peep toe, but it’s only tiny and they’re so pretty…)

Seriously, there are loads. I found heaps more with the Debenhams coupon code and lots of wide fit heels with the Simply Be offers, but I don’t want to start boring you with shoes. Not that shoes are boring or anything.

I’ll let you know next week what I end up picking out…

The Essential Bridesmaid Accessory Post

For purely selfish reasons, this week I’m going to write a post about hunting for vintage-looking bridesmaid accessories, because (and you’ve probably already guessed this part), I’m going to be a bridesmaid in a few weeks and the wedding has a bit of a vintage theme. The dress is sorted, but I need to buy a few extras. And as I’m lucky enough to be bridesmaid to the most laidback bride in the world, I’m allowed to choose pretty much whatever I want. Don’t worry, I’m not going to go overboard, just some subtle, understated by very-much-in-keeping-with-the-theme pieces, and hopefully, with the help of a few vintage voucher codes, they won’t set me back too much…

ROSIE CLIPThe first thing I’m looking for is something to hold my hair up/back/wherever. I’m thinking a white flower of some sort. Or perhaps something with pearls… but the first thing that’s caught my eye isn’t either of these things! This Coast voucher code (because we all know Coast should be your first port of call for anything wedding related) gets me up top 50% off selected accessories, including this Rosie Clip, down from £18 to £12.

Next, I need some sort of purse or clutch that fits in with the look – something pearly, silvery, a bit shiny, not too big – shouldn’t be too much of a problem, right? Again, I’m not really sticking to my remit here, as my eye was drawn to this Fiorelli Angel Gold Ziparound Purse, reduced from £35 to £21 and available using this House of Fraser discount voucher that saves you up to 70% off selected items. Ok, so it’s a bit shiny. That’s a start.

Now, what about jewellery – something simply, perhaps with a pearl or two… These Treasure Box voucher codes fit the bill quite nicely – you can either get up to 50% off selected items, or 15% off your first purchase. So it’s a tie between a beautiful bargain – these Pearl and CZ Sterling Silver Earrings, reduced from £26.50 to £16.50, or splashing out on these 9ct Gold Diamond and Pearl Earrings, reduced from £245 to £208.25 with the 15% discount.

Of course, there are plenty of other bridesmaid-related items I shall require, but I’ll save them for next week and let you mull these little extras over first!

The Best of the Secret Sales

Happy Belated New Year people! I hope you gave and received loads of gorgeous vintage items this year, but if not, that’s what the sales are for, right? Granted, I’m a bit late on the sales front, but we all need a bit of time to recover after all that Christmas overindulgence, and there are still plenty of bargains to be had. Even more, in some respects, as you’ll see, if you search hard enough (like I do), you’ll find a few online secret sales with even more reductions. Anyway, here’s a few tempting offerings from our favourite retailers…

Coast is always one of my first ports of call in sales season as you can get some amazing savings on their gorgeous dresses. Perfect if you’ve got any spring weddings on the horizon, or you just want to replenish the glam part of your wardrobe. This Bronx Lace Dress is reduced from £85 to £39, the flapper-tastic Mischa Fringe Dress is now down to £75 from £150 and this gorgeous Goddess Short Dress is now only £59 (was £125). Just click on this Coast voucher code to get up to 50% off selected items.


And now onto the shoes. I’m after a pair of new heels, so I might just devote a whole post to my search next week, but for now, here’s a selection of shoes you can access using this Moda in Pelle discount voucher – it gets you an additional 15% off all sale items – yay for secret sales! Takes you pick from these sparkly Callen heels, the adorable Davies shoes, or these fantastic Haldana wedges. All coming in at under £30 a pair.

Joules are fast becoming a favourite around here, especially for top quality casual wear and accessories that offer a more unique take on classic styles. And they do gorgeous kids clothes too, in case you’re tempted to splash out on other family members. The secret Joules discount code gets you an extra 10% off all their sale items, including the Maycroft Trench Coat, Sandpiper Jumper and Bloomfield Silk Scarf.

You might think I’ve missed the January sales boat, but you are mistaken – as you can see from these voucher codes, retailers are rather keen on clearing out all of that old stock, and that means even more discounts. It’s a good job that I’m here to search for you then, isn’t it?
