Here are my top picks of what is currently available:
We all know the day after Christmas means one thing (aside from more over eating and drinking) it is of course the post Christmas sales. As I previously worked in retail for 6 years and the fact that I am a self confessed shopaholic, I know how to sale shop!
While there are great bargains to be found, there are also in many cases old products from the back of the stock room thrown out onto the floor too. So you the shopper is often left wading through stock from two seasons ago, just to find the styles you have been looking for. So I have picked out my favourites from this year’s sales to hopefully help you safe some time, effort and of course money!
Embelished Box Jacket €45.00 River Island
Wader Boots €38.57 ASOS
Jumpsuit €18.57 ASOS
Snood €19.99 Zara
Wrap Shift Dress €31.75 TopShop
Burgundy Ankle Boots €35.00 River Island
Two Tone Shopper Bag €69.99 Zara
Slogan Tee €8.00 River Island
Peplum Leather Coat €45.00 Newlook
Oversized Scarf €24.99 Asos
I personally try not to buy anything that is too ‘this season’ during the sales as I always fall in love with the new stock coming into the stores. I only ever pick something that I know I will like this time next year too, hence nothing that is associated too much with a particular trend.
Happy Shopping My Loves
This weekend I had an event to attend, one which was quite difficult to assess in terms of what to wear. On one hand I didn’t want to be too over dressed but I certainly did not want to be under dressed. Anyone who knows me understands how much I love to play dress up and stick the war paint on! It would be a cardinal sin for me to turn down an opportunity to get dolled up! I wanted something different and strayed away from my usual dark colours and opted for muted, Winter pastels.
Top €6.99, Necklace €14.99, Shoes €24.99 all Newlook Pencil Skirt €18.00 River Island (on sale, WINNING!)
Aside from the statement necklace, I kept my jewellery quite simple. I just wore my watch (I always wear a watch!) my Pandora bracelet and a simple band ring I have from Links of London. I didn’t want to over do it and take away from the simplicity of the outfit.
Needless to say by the end of the day I was nearly the same colour as the skirt, thanks to the good old Irish weather, but nothing a few sneaky vodkas couldn’t fix!
Hope you enjoyed 🙂
