WWFW - Click me up before I go-go

Clearance section too traumatic for you?  Then welcome to my weekly wishdom of rock 'n' roll on up items at knock down prices.  I spent the last decade square-bashing at TK Maxx, so I've certainly earned my stripes as a bargainier.   

This week I have been stalking the 800+ sale items at and asked myself why these poor darlings have not been offered a good home, especially as it is practically 2 outfits for the usual price of one!

I would rob a blind, deaf OAP for any number of the below, maybe even sell my cat to Sharon Stone.

If looks could kill, these probably will.

Shimmer me timbers
In the past day some inconsiderate (but obviously very stylish) shopper sabotaged this last outfit by stealing my, ahem, Sofias, platforms.  You ruined it for everyone.  I hope you're happy.  I bet you are, because you got yourself some good heels there.

Yo lady!  If you read this, buy the rest of the outfit!  I, ahem, you, not only deserve it, but I, ahem, you, need it.  Wear it for a bit and then just make sure you leave the lot neatly folded in acid free tissue in an unmarked brown paper bag in the bin outside Cafe Nero on Bond St, Brighton on 25th April 2011 at 9.30pm.  Don't tell anyone about this or you'll have to retreat faster than you can say Jock Stirrup.

If you, my dear partysans, are more forgiving and open minded than I, the YSL cage platform sandals, left, make a respectable alternative at £320 (original price £640)

Brian Atwood's embroidered lace-up peep-toe heels, right are shweet too, £359 (original price £898)

These dress ideas are more than good. I am loving that purple trouser with mustard shirt, the combination is awesome. Thank you for posting such stuff.
