Oh i do love a good sale, but i am not a fan of wading through rail after rail of clothes where the majority of pieces aren’t in my size. Online is always where its at for me with sales, and oh how i love a bargain.
If you’ve been around these parts before, you may know that i’m actually quite tight with my cash when it comes to clothes. I don’t want to have to spend and arm and a leg to look nice, which makes me and the sales BFF’s.
At this time of year all the shops are being inundated with the first hit of the Autumn ranges, which means all the summer items go on sale, and with half of summer still to go (hopefully), you should be able to bag yourself some bargains for now and even some that will work right through the seasons.
The best thing to do is make a list of what you need in your life and shop for that.
So with a few pennies in my purse and an itch to spend, here’s what i’ll be shopping this Summer.
Dresses from Dorothy Perkins
I always buy my summer dresses in the sale and then happily wear them for the rest of summer and pull them out the following year also. I think being British makes me sceptical when buying summer dresses as you never really know how much wear you will get out of them due to the unpredictable weather. Therefore sales are always where i pick my dresses.
Better yet, buying a couple now that will work fort sunny days and will also see you through to autumn too.
I love the idea of wearing both of these now with a denim jacket and sandals and then switching to a chunky knit cardigan or biker jacket and boots for autumn.. great workhorse dresses that don’t cost the earth are my absolute favourites.
The perfect indulgence? That one item that can out live all other trends and accompany you for years of wear: The handbag. I do love a good handbag me and most of mine have been with me some time, and will continue to be too! I think the sales are the perfect time to bag (heh!) yourself an indulgence.
I have ridiculously sensitive eyes and wear sunglasses all year round. I possibly look like Bono and a bit of a nonce but i can’t help it, i honestly feel naked without a pair and use them for driving and hiding tired eyes, for me they really are a must. My only problem is i quite often loose them, which means not spending a lot of money on them is kind of important when there is a strong possibility they may not be with me for 12 months.. (sad but true.. Just call me Dori)
Sales buys for sunglasses are a must. Great style, shape and designer sunnies but with a good percentage discount making me much happier to part with the cash.
I am constantly looking for a new camera. Its become this habit of mine to check daily to see if there’s been a reduction in price or if the camera i want has gone in to the sales. This way through Love The Sales i can keep an eye on the one i want and watch the price percentage reduction and then will hopefully bag that camera. This is the one i’m currently lusting after with wifi image sharing and flip up screen for vlogging (which is something I really want to get in to!) it seems a great fit between a DSLR and a standard compact digital. It also has interchangeable lenses and the reviews are pretty great, its also much smaller than our DSLR making pictures on the go a lot easier… that’s the plan anyway, i’m watching this one like a hawk!
So that’s what i’m shopping in the sales, how about you? Is there anything you specifically shop for in the sales?
