Mini Boxing Day Haul


(Image sourced from Google)

Boxing Day is usually my favourite part of Christmas! It's the best excuse to shop all day, and I'm not fussed that most stores put out older stock. I'm a fan of having clothes and accessories that nobody else has, even if it's "out of fashion." This Boxing Day was a little bit of a let down for me, however, as Melbourne just did not sport as many great sales as it used to!

A few years back I remember buying a bunch of awesome stuff, but this year the sales fell flat. Last year, I remember walking into Valleygirl and everything was 20% off! Not a great deal, but still something. But this year, they had one tiny rack at the front of the store that said 50% off, and they were all a bunch of singlets in white. Gee, thanks Valleygirl.

But, I did manage to pick up a few bargains!


VS Sassoon Big Hair Styler

I've been eyeing this baby for a while now. I almost got this from Priceline a few weeks back when it was 20% off, but decided not to for some reason. I walked in and saw it 50% off on Boxing Day and knew I couldn't resist any longer!
You can buy this here.


Colette Metallic Knot Flap Over in Black

This probably looks familiar, and that's because I received the Peach version of this for Christmas! (See my Christmas Gift Haul) I just love the design of this bag, and I knew I had to have it in black as well!
You can buy this here.



Rings

The pretty white bow ring was from Lovisa, who actually had amazing sales. The gorgeous peach diamond ring was from Colette, who also had fairly good sales.



Lovisa Earrings

The backs on the first two pairs are the same as the second, you just can't see them due to the packaging. These are my absolute favourite types of earrings, as I think ear tunnel earrings look amazing! So happy to pick up these gorgeous sets.
I can't find either of these on their website, however you can look at their other styles here.



Magnetix Nail Polish in Pretty Woman

I picked this up from Priceline for only $5, which is an absolute steal! This gorgeous set comes with two different magnets, so I'll be interested to see how these go. They had a few different colours, but I went with silver which is something I can wear more often. 



Rubi Molly Moccasin shoes in Purple

Rubi Shoes were having a sale, two for $20, and I desperately need some new shoes so I caved and purchased some. I love the idea of the moccasin style shoes, as they seem so comfortable and cute! I picked purple instead of black, to try and mix things up a little bit! These aren't overly comfortable, but I think I just need to wear them in! They feel really comfortable with socks or stockings though! (Not really helpful in summer, but come winter I'll be living in these babies!)
You can buy these here.



Rubi Fliss Bow Flat Shoes in Black

As above, I needed to get new shoes. Black never goes astray, and flats with a little bow adds a little extra flair. At least I think so! These are super comfortable with or without socks/stockings, so I will get a lot of use out of these! They're so cute!
You can buy these here.

So, although my haul was not overly huge as I wanted it to be, I still got a lot of good stuff! I did do a little sneaky online shopping, so as soon as my bargains arrive, I'll be sure so share them with you!

So did you like my mini haul? Did you manage to pick up any great bargains?
