Everything £5

I've had a minor obsession with the website Everything5Pounds - because just like it says EVERYTHING is just 5 pounds. Clothes, shoes, coats, bags, you name it.

Alarm bells may go off in your head and you may think it must be too good to be true, assuming that the stuff will be low quality? After recommending the website to a friend she immediately bought a few things and was pleasantly surprised after a few weeks when they hadn't shown any signs of falling apart. She also received the items within a matter of days.

I thought I may as well give it a try and even though a lot of the items for sale are a bit naff it's worth persevering through all their stuff because there are a few real gems in there! I picked up a playsuit for summer which will no doubt feature in an OOTD in a few months time, I also got the next two lovely items...
These really thick leggings have been an "around the house" staple for me over the past few months. I know they are going to last me a long, long time! They're thick and warm and I love the fairisle inspired pattern too :)
This faux Longchamp bag actually has real leather parts! There were two sizes to choose from and loads of different colours, I chose the bigger one which is actually a bit too big for everyday but perfect as a weekend or travel bag. I've used it a bunch of times and it's perfect so far. When I have some free funds I'll definitely be picking up the smaller size for using everyday.

You can't really go wrong for a fiver can you? ;) ♥

    1. :) Glad I could pass on something with so many wonderful bargains. You should check out their shoe section. My friends had a pair of boots for months now that she wears practically everyday and they're really good quality :) x

    1. You def can't go wrong for a fiver, even if it falls apart, but totally amazing when stuff like this actually lasts!

      I never got into bags as a teen, not sure why. I have a weird collection - maybe I should do a post! I do wish for a designer bag one day though I'd never know what to get. When I look at bags they all look so funny to me I never know which ones I like more or less! I usually buy cute little satchels, bags with doodles on or practical bags! So rubbish! xxx

    1. I know! I'm so pleased. I think the shoes and coats are the best bargains on the website though - they last for ages too, my friends had a pair of boots for months and she wears them almost everday! xx
