my sales strategy!

The truth is that I'm a lazy moo when it comes to sale shopping. I have no inclination to leave the house at the moment as I just can't be bothered to brave the crowds to go in search of bargains. That said, I am suffering from the dreaded FOMO. If I am going to buy anything it needs to be something that will be worn over and over and all year around and purchased online. So I've just set about looking at basics. I need a new pair of Stan's. My Adidas have seen better days but I've managed to find a replacement at Spartoo with a smidge over £20 off, the best deal I could find after a lot of website trawling.



I noticed that Spartoo have a few desirable brands and so after a little more research there is now also a Petit Bateau sweater in my basket just begging to be clicked! Love the gold button shoulder detail.....and a girl can never have too many Bretons! The best news is that it has 20% off and a further 10% 😉



I've previously mentioned wanting to bag some new jeans at a discount. Originally I thought I was after some skinnies. However I think I have most colours, washes and distressed styles covered so I've now turned my attention to some much needed new Boyfriends. There are some brilliant discounts at various online stores, if you are after blue The Hut came up trumps with 40% off and free delivery!



A quick confession now.......I've also found a fantastically discounted pair in white to stash for the Summer, so an order has been placed......if they work out a purchase of black ones is also on the cards!

Now I've stuck with simple classic items that will well and truly be worth their pair per wear and my parting gift to you is another investment purchase although it's not in the sale. It's a must have item that you will bring out year after year. I'll admit to owning 3 different versions of this kind of jacket and I'm telling you now.....you need one if you haven't already got one. You will thank me for the purchase of this in a couple of months time! I shall be eBaying one of mine to make room for this one!



So there we are, the perfect Spring outfit with 3/4 of it reduced! That's what I call savvy sales shopping!

Have you made any sales purchases yet? If so, did you have a plan and stick to it? What did you go for? I would love to hear!

Here's what I've been sporting these pasy couple of days.

Will I be able to steer clear of the shops....or will I fall foul of some more FOMO?! Only time will tell.

I hope to be back soon with some more savvy S/S17 planning. Ta-ta for now!

    1. The sales are a good time to stock on the basics though! I'm really chuffed with what I've got! I've kept the Levi's in the coal/black. I'm still waiting for the Stan's to arrive. If there is one thing I still can't recommend highly enough, it's the Topshop jacket!! It's so much better in real life and again another wardrobe classic that will go on and on! Thank you for the super comment! :0) xx
