peacocks-in-administration.pngIt's a sad day when we lose a much-loved source of shoes, and this week we've had to say goodbye not only to Shoedazzle, but to budget high street chain Peacocks as well. Peacocks have been responsible for many of our budget shoe picks over the years, and it had to be admitted that the brand were always quick off the mark with their designer 'homages' at rock-bottom prices. They'll be sorely missed on those cash-poor days when a cheeap a fashion lift is the only way out of the gloom...

But looking on the bright side, shops closing down means bargains a-gogo. We've already had some fun selecting awesome shoes and boots for £15 a pair on Shoedazzle's closing sale today (with no ongoing membership scheme in place, you can now place a single order with no commitment to buy more, of course) and now we're turning our attention to Peacocks' sale, where you can buy these preppy brown heeled loafers for a mere £7.50.

So. Who's next for the chop? We're like vultures today. I feel a little dirty...
