So the sales have started and boy it’s a mixed bag – but as ever, after browsing the sites a couple of times, lots caught my eye. Let’s just get on with it shall we? Here are my picks of the sales so far!
First good old Marks and Spencer have 30% off women’s wear. There are some fabulous coats on sale starting with my checked biker jacket reduced to £97.30. I love this coat.
Another favorite of mine that I’ve resisted to date is this coat from the Best of British collection – now on sale – this will sell out fast now it has been reduced I assure you.
This coat is a similar style to the checked coat I have – but for those of you that love leopard. If I didn’t already have a leopard coat from M&S bought a couple of years ago I would buy this.
Now for Mango – who I always think have some of the best sale prices. I have just bought the following dress and skirt. I think they are very Marant-ish and much more reasonably priced than any of the H&M collection.
This dress is just gorgeous worn in the winter with boots or with flats in the warmer weather. It’s half price at $49.99.
I actually ordered this skirt in a couple of different color ways. It is so reminiscent of the ra-ra skirts I wore in the 80’s – I had a yellow one I adored:) Again this is a skirt that can be worn in all seasons.
I love shorts all year round, and these will be great with over-the-knee boots and black tights.
Now for Zara. Some of the reductions are pretty disappointing but I did manage to grab the ballet flats I’ve been drooling over – reduced from $99.99 to $59.99. They’ll be perfect with the Mango skirts. I was really disappointed to see Zara have started charging shipping here on orders less than $50, which just means I’ll have to throw some extra items – and return them obviously!
Lastly from Zara – here’s one that no doubt most of you will hate but I LOVE this. The denim boiler suit reduced from $119 to $59.
Another gorgeous party dress is this oriental print dress.
I love the rose print on this midi-dress – really striking.
I’ve ordered the next couple to wear with either my Golden Goose or my over the knee boots – they are great prices.
This oversized shift is just $31.
This dress may not be to everyones taste but I love the layered sleeve look. Again now just $31.
Finally a t-shirt dress for the spring – yes I’m already starting to think sunshine. No one would notice if it fell in your cart at just $22.
So go on share – what have you slipped in your closet from the sales while you’re finishing up the Christmas shopping? Tell me I’m not the only one!
This week has been a party week for me. It’s been fabulous catching up with some girlfriends that I haven’t seen for a LONG time. Here’s what I wore Thursday night for a fun night out with some great girls that I’ve known since I moved to Atlanta nearly 14 years ago!
