Love letters...



Today I've been to my old favourite shop… Matalan.

My bargain of the day wasn't my blue dress (airport chic contender, see below) (ebay £6).
It wasn't even my cardigan (ebay £2).

It wasn't even these cute peeptoe white wedges with a bow (matalan £6):


It was though, these dangly earrings (matalan 75p!):


I love matalan. I've penned a little note to tell them how much:

Dear Matalan,

I heart you massively. I love you more than I loved that elderly man who walked into the cinema on Sunday to watch 'The Proposal', wearing his jumper tied around his waist, but the wrong way round so it looked like an apron (I didn't know that was still an acceptable fashion?).

I know some of my friends and family don't agree with you. They don't understand you Matalan. They take one look at the crumply, jumble sale type outer, but they don't take the time to delve into you and find out what you're all about.

I've neglected you for a week I know. But I drove past you on my way back from the airport and blew you a kiss, you were never far from my thoughts I promise.

I'm back now, and we can start up where we left off, I'll visit you at least 3 times a week, how does that sound?.

And thank you for your surprise 75% off sale today. You always know how to put a smile on my face.

Yours always
Shopaholic

So what do you think? A teeny weeny bit creepy and weird?
Uh huh, I know.

I think with Matalan & TK Maxx you need to look quite hard & sometimes, if you're lucky, you can find a real gem - like yr earrings! Gorgeous!

Lovely post - see you again soon!

I only go into Matalan about three times a year, but when I do enter it it amazes me! The shoes are always great, and 75p for earrings is literally insane!

Harry McKinley said...

I know SO MANY people who, previously having been typical spend-a-holics, have developed insatiable Matalan / TK Maxx habits!
