A little like Janet Jackson’s “What Have You Done For Me Lately”, but a slightly different focus. After being quite restrained for the last few months, the sales have begun and many of the items that I put on my Wish List have been reduced. Or were in danger of being sold out, so I pounced anyway. Here’s what I have bought for me lately:
Eve has these in the black, but I just bought Sam Edelman Adenas in black, so didn’t feel I could justify both. So, I went for the nude colour. A lovely shade they are, too, with a great shape. I am between sizes at Aldo, annoyingly. So I did have to size up to 40, and then put in an insole. Just what wouldn’t these go with?!
- Gap cowl neck dress (£30 down to £20)
I actually need this in a S, but its sold out, so could only get the XS. This size is a bit tight round my apple shaped middle, so not sure if I will keep it, but am including it as its lovely and I did buy it.
- Zara floral crystal necklace (£23)
Just in case you didn’t see it enough in my recent blog post…
- Zara turquoise bib necklace (£20)
I think this will work with both black and navy, making it an All Rounder.
- Zara bejewelled earrings (£10)
Not sure if I have blogged these yet? They are gorgeous, but so heavy that I will have to convert them from pierced to clip on earrings. On my list of things to do, so they glimmer at me, waiting to be worn.
- Warehouse military trousers (£36 down to £20)
I wanted skinny cargoes, but couldn’t get happy with the pockets on the legs. These are, instead, perfect for me. And now only £20. They are true to size – I need a size 10.
- French Connection blue top (£20)
I bought this on a day I was feeling tense and frustrated. Bad idea. Its not a great top – too long for me. Live and learn, Ms Buy in Haste, Repent at Leisure…
- Sam Edelman Adenas (£99, but on Brand Alley for £56!!)
Fierce and fabulously comfortable – an unusual combination…
- Massimo Dutti strappy heels (£80 down to £56)
After wishing for these for a few months, I have also ordered these pretty things. And I have something fun and lovely (waves to Chumps) to wear them to in a couple of weeks, too!
- Coccinelle Queency (£185 down to £129)
Last but NOT least…! I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for this bag to go on sale, and when it had a decent reduction, It arrived the other day and is gorgeous!! I will eventually have the strap shortened so I can wear it as a shoulder bag, but while I still have to chase The Bolters, a cross body bag is probably a better idea.
Oooh, I just checked and it has sold out, so I am glad I did’t dither. I would have been really upset if my game of Sales Chicken backfired on me. You know, where you try and work out whether you can wait for a further reduction, or risk it being sold out. Not a risk I could taken for my Beloved Red Bag!
Apart from some shoes for The Bolters, I think that is me DONE for quite a while. I think.
