Confessions Of A Drunk Shopper

I had a few beers last night and got an email from Cambridge Satchel. I’ve browsed their recent sale a few times and managed to resist but with an extra 10% off, new items added to the same AND 12% cashback available (if you’re not already using Top Cashback you should be – you can sign up here) I pulled the trigger.

Since these deals were time sensitive I thought I’d post them on social but then it occured to me.. I’ve bought more than this new handbag while under the influence this week. Shameful, I know, but true.. and some of the items were purchased in store. Drunk shopping in an actual shop is quite possibly my favourite pastime. I very much enjoy the ‘f*ck it’ attitude a drink or 2 bestows upon me.. but my morning after self does not. Here are a few of the things I’ve recently purchased because, beer.

Topshop Sunglasses – £14 – still available in gold /silver

H&M Leopard Swimsuit £17.99 – still available in black and one of the most flattering cuts I’ve ever worn

Cambridge Satchel Cloud Bag – £130 down to £65 in the sale + 10% off

H&M Tasselled Shopper – £24.99 down to £12.00 but sold out – TRACK IT DOWN IF YOU CAN!

Every one of these bar the bag has sold out and one (the beach bag) has halved in price.. and I only received it this morning!!!! Imagine the rage! I will say that both that bag and the leopard swimsuit had been on my list for a while and I hadn’t been able to track them down, the swimsuit was like a mirage when I spotted it in store and the bag was obviously a return since it’s now been knocked down and sold out within the space of 48 hours so I’m not going to be too irritated. My drunken self did pay £14 for some purple sunglasses that look a bit funny on me though so we’re still on shaky ground. I’ll let you know what I think of the ‘Cloud Bag’ when it arrives, I like the turn lock and think that yellow works with my neutral/earthy colour palette but I’ve been wrong before when it comes to justifying sales purchases!!


What have you succumbed to recently? Any sales I should know about? 😉

    This is hilarious! Drunk shopping is so much fun until the regret hits you the next day. Last time I did it I was on vacation and had an appointment at the apple store in the evening. It was my first day of vacation so I was thinking I deserved a treat and had a couple of drinks before going to the mall (husband drove). I went into bath and body works during the semi annual sale and scooped up 9 body lotions and 4 body washes. Did not need them as I had over 20 lotions and about 15 body washes to use already.

    I am guilty of this during the summer months as well. We have a beautiful outdoor mall that has a ton of restaurants….and a Sephora. Without fail, every night out with the girls ends up with me in Sephora, my arm full of swatches and a basket of things I don’t need.

    Well – first of all I feel sorry for myself because I’m in full time job and decided to do college part time…. yeah.. so as “treating myself” goes I went a bit crazy in skin care department and a bit around clothing.
    Like Jake Wills crop denim jacket, villa wide trousers and Warehouse blouse… not much to drink either…
    I really want wallet on chain type bag – but 1. Not sure which one and 2. Do I really need one??
