Latest Shopping Haul - Rubi Shoes, Jay Jays, Forever New & Valleygirl



Hi lovely people, I've got a shopping haul to show you (yeah, another one!)

Seems like the end of Summer sales are really starting to ramp up, and I managed to pick up some bargains here and there. 

First stop of the day was Cotton On/Rubi Shoes, at Harbourtown (direct outlet shopping). They were having a pretty massive sale on shoes! Heaps of sandals, ballet flats & sneakers 3 for $10, or $5-10 a pair, and boots and heels around the $10-20 mark~

Actually Rubi Shoes' ballet flats seem quite flimsy - they DO NOT last long, and feel like there's only a thin piece of cardboard between your soles and the ground, which can't be healthy for your feet. Therefore I just got some sneakers instead :) Because I've started taking 30 minute walks again (cos I put on weight these past few months).

My sis got the third pair, so a total of 3 for $10.

Some pics of the stuff on sale



Luckily there weren't many shoes I really liked, so I didn't go overboard! Even dirt cheap, I wonder how they're going to sell all these off...


Jay Jays was also having a sale, 50% off marked down items, so I picked up this polka dot tank top for $2.50 (from $15>$5), and two other tees for my sis. This top has a massive pocket on the side, and an uneven hemline - how weird, but I love it!

Dotti was having an awesome $19.95 sale on super-high, flirty, platform party heels, but I managed to resist - I have an abundance of impractical heels, already! And there was a cute floral dress at Chica Booti which I really wanted, however my jiggly arms meant my normal size was too tight around the sleeves, so I told myself I shall not buy any new clothes until I get my weight back down :P


Forever New was still having their 40% of marked sale items promotion (another FN bag purchased was shown in this haul post). This time I found this lovely cream handbag for the final price of $24.95 (from $69.99 > $39.95). It looks a bit plain here, but that's probably the lighting.  Look at the cute tassel embellishment - I have an unyielding love of anything embellished with tassels! But I think after this one I shouldn't need to buy any more bags for awhile...



And finally, these cute little loafer-inspired heels are from ValleyGirl, and were selling for the princely sum of $6.95 (down from $30). I love the cute polka dot inner lining and oh look, more tassels! 


Actually, it's been months & months since I've seen ridiculous sales like these, even at direct outlet stores - or maybe it's just because it's been ages since I last went!


So, is anyone else having luck with end of season sales? And anyone else share my weird fixation fondness of tassels? ^____________^


*Also, please take a look at a small poll I'm running. I'm thinking about changing my blog title, so let me know what you think! It's underneath my profile pic*

  6. Rubi shoes are cheap but I don't trust them - I heard their durability is shockingly low. The pair from Valleygirl looks lovely, a great snag for the price you got it at! The top from Jayjays looks cute <3

  12. Haha their heels look cute on the website, but then I heard some reviews where the heel snapped off after one wear so I definitely only feel comfortable getting the sneakers :)
    Thanks, hope you find something cute @ FN <3

  14. the shoes are pretty but too bad they don't last, then again if it's only $3 for a pair then lol if you can wear them through a season that's already amazing!
