Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

I have this pair of shoes – a rose gold, al­mond-toed set of block heels from Zara that are dead ringers for £450 Miu Mius – that I man­aged to snag a few years back for just £15.99. These shoes just so hap­pen to be the most-com­pli­mented item in my wardrobe. Friends beg to bor­row them, my mum con­sid­ered wear­ing them her­self for my wed­ding day back in 2014 and, af­ter all this time, they’re still my go-to when I’m run­ning late for work/a night out/a wed­ding (yes, I di­gress, I am late. A lot). So, when peo­ple in­evitably ask where they’re from, as they al­ways do, my re­sponse is: ‘Zara. Can you be­lieve it? And they were only £15.’ (And yes, along with run­ning late, ap­par­ently I also like to ex­ag­ger­ate my words. A lot.)

In­deed, noth­ing gives me the same sat­is­fac­tion as shar­ing my four-year-old bar­gain with the world, which is why we’ve ded­i­cated this is­sue to help­ing you claim this unadul­ter­ated eu­pho­ria for your­self. From the £17 dress that looks way more Prada than Pri­mark to the £25 san­dals in­flu­encers are trad­ing in their Her­mès slid­ers for, you’ll find plenty of af­ford­able treats to quench your mid-month shop­ping thirst.

And it’s not just your wardrobe we’ve set our fru­gal sights on – we’re also on a mis­sion to make your beauty bag a more cost-ef­fec­tive place. We’ve got the won­der oil that will sort all your skin and hair woes for just 35p per use, and a blusher that’s a mere 22p per sweep. Just call us your fi­nan­cial fairy god­moth­ers. Now, go forth – with op­ti­mum cost-sav­ing smug­ness!
