My bomber jacket bargain!

So Frugal February went out the window on day 1! No resolve whatsoever here! It's all down to an exceedingly good bargain as always! I've been hankering after a bomber jacket for a while......inspiration as always thanks to Pinterest!! Please let me look this cool in mine!!









And so onto my bargain purchase! I spotted this Topshop bomber in Outfit at my local retail park last week but they only had a size 14 in stock....however I popped back in there on Saturday and they had a few more sizes so I snapped it up! Nothing left on the website so I have had to picture it myself........



This one is black quilted nylon and was reduced from £48 down to £25. I love the quirky red lining and the chunky silver zip! Had a little try on over some boyfriend jeans and skater shoes!


Topshop did have a couple of other fab choices. I also tried on this one which is navy nylon and priced at £55



This floral one looks lovely too and would be great for Spring



Gap have a good selection too....this one is very pretty, love the china blue


I was considering this in navy quilted one until I found the Topshop one as I think the black will be more useful for me.



Found some great versions whilst perusing ASOS! This French Connection one has leather sleeves and been greatly reduced from £125 down to £75


This Mango one is also reduced from £59.99 down to £32.50



This ASOS gold jacquard bomber would be great for an evening with a leather look pencil skirt, coated skinny's or boyfriends.....see I'm talking myself into this one too!! A brilliant bargain at £24.50!


This ASOS one is in sweatshirt fabric and is a steal at £22....that's full price!!


So this is just the tip of the iceberg on the bomber jacket front....there is literally something for everyone, feminine or sporty, day or evening!! Is this a look you would go for?? Do you have a favourite?? How will you be wearing yours??

A quick reccie of what I've been wearing this past week! The new Nike Free's have been out in force! They are so comfy and I love 'em as they make my size 6's look tiny!!

Anyone else like me and already failed miserably with the Frugal February challenge?? I fear it could be down hill all the way from here on in!! Look forward to reading and responding to your comments!

Be back soon! Michelle x

  1. Hey Michelle, you look so cool in that bomber! It looks far more expensive than the original price. I'm also liking the FC on and the gold one, so glam for a night out.I think you'll get loads of use out of the bomber too, we just need the weather to perk up a bit. No frugal Feb for me either, lifes too short not to buy nice things and make you feel better in the winter months. Your feet look dinky in the new trainers! Absolitely love your girls night out outfit, right up my street. Vikki xx

    1. Thank you so much Vikki!! The FC one is gorgeous....so similar to the very cool looking Pinterest pic too!! I know you have a big soft spot for a bit of FC!!
      Hmmm...no frugal feb here....tons of stuff on the old wish list!!

      Hoping there is another reason to don the Saturday night outfit as I felt really good in that!! xx

  3. oooh your Sunday look looks amazing - love that!
    I am so unsure about the shiny bomber jackets - in fact it's making me cringe as I am transported back to my 13yr old Bros loving self!
    The quilted one you bought it GREAT though!

    1. Lol Fiona! All I can say it that I may have just missed the Bros phase....more of a Duran-y at heart so by-passed the bomber phase first time around!!

      So hope I can pull this style off....you are scaring me now :o) lol xx

  4. You look brilliant in your new bomber. And it was a bargain...
    You look great in all of your outfits Michelle but I particularly love the " different" one with the checked shirt and Primark trousers. Love Liz xxx

  5. Hi my dear!! Wow, your bomber was a fabulous bargain, really stylish and I'm sure it will be so versatile too- well done for nabbing it!! Loving your pinterest inspiration too, you really kickstarted me to get going on my account and I love it, hehe!! Lovely choice of daywear outfits -those trousers with the Stan Smiths look totally chic and I love those ponyskin Next sneakers, am debating whether to get a pair! I've actually just nabbed your Autograph leopardprint bag on ebay-just waiting for it to come. I wanted to get it instore before it sold out, but chose the boots instead and everytime I see your bag in action I knew I had to get it-hope you don't mind, you're such a good style influence on me, hehe! Have a great week xxx

    1. Hey Sharon....you have some truly amazing stuff going on your Pin boards.....I can't keep up!! Isn't the inspiration fab!!
      I say go for the ponyskin Next sneakers...they will come into their own once the weather gets a tad warmer and you can dare to bare your ankles...lol!
      So glad you have managed to 'bag' the M&S leopard print number....it is so gorgeous and it goes with so much more than I thought it would!! Of course I don't mind you getting it....I look forward to stealing your style!! I would love the boots but have been good as it has been all about the trainers and brogues of late!! Glad I'm such a good influence ;o) Hope you have a superb week too! xx

  6. Love the bomber jacket and great bargain too. The gold ASOS one is lovely too. Think I've still got a satin finished stone one in my wardrobe, off to have a look. Great styling as always Michelle xx

    1. Donna, that bl**dy ASOS gold bomber kept me awake last night!! I want it! But do I really need it?? Out for a dinner in a couple of weeks and think it would be perfect for my night out but can I really justify it.....watch this space ;o) xx

  7. Some bargains just have to be bought and I love the bomber on you Michelle. My middle daughter has a black one from FC she got in the sale about a year ago and it gets a lot of wear as I am sure yours will x

    1. Thanks Sharron! It would seem that my wardrobe seems to be getting a hell of a lot more casual.....I blame the trainer love and so this jacket slots in perfectly with my new found laid back theme!! xx

  8. You definitely look cool ... have no doubts on that score! Love that jacket and strangely drawn to the gold Asos one as well. Great pics; as stylish as always :)

    1. Yay....to looking cool Helen!! I need no encouragement on the gold ASOS jacket front......just hope it does not keep me awake again tonight!!

      To hell with it.....I shall just have to order it, even if it's only to get it out of my system!! xx

  9. Ooh - looking seriously cool in that bomber jacket. I've not really thought about them as I think they would make me look too butch but I have to say you've got the perfect figure to pull it off and you've styled it just right.

    And the slouchy trousers and trainers - I used to do that with my work suits and trainers walking across town and if there were no meetings or anything, I kept them on the rest of the day instead of whipping out a pair of sensible shoes. I always like the Allsaints vibe about that kind of slouchy trouser look.

    1. Glad I found those trousers deep in the back of the wardrobe Sue! They were great for testing the waters out first with that look as it felt so strange to be in something other than jeans! Think I may have to invest in a better pair now though as I did enjoy wearing that look...it felt good!! Think the bomber would be excellent over that look too!! xx

  10. The bomber jacket you found is amazing!!! The best one I've seen all year. I also really love the gold jacquard one from a ASOS... Sorry, I know I'm not helping you be frugal :) It's so awesome. I have been failing miserably as well in my attempt to shop less. Okay, maybe I'm shopping slightly less but nevertheless still shopping plenty. Great finds at incredible prices, Michelle.

    1. Lol Avril.....please could you do a prize for the biggest spender in frugal Feb?! I fear I am well on my way to winning that title!! So far this month I've notched up the bomber, jacket, a new parka as I had to return the H&M one I bought earlier in the season...new one was double the price of the original but I think this crazy weather warrants it!! I bought a sweatshirt yesterday and there are a couple of other items I *must* have this month....yikes!! xx
